I never thought to put those two together.

Such an odd pair.

Wait. Maybe they were destined to be together. Like Noah and Allie from The Notebook. Or, Ted and Robin from How I Met Your Mother. Anyone else bummed that show is over? No more red cowboy boots, Robin Sparkles, or LEGEN……wait-for-it…..DARY!. Barney was definitely one of my favorite charters. Of course who doesn’t love a little NPH?

Shoot. Where was I? Oh, yes, the odd pair. In my thirty-one years on this wonderful, yet annoying-at-times planet, I have never had hummus on a pizza. Clearly, I feel as though this should have been brought to my attention five minutes ago because I eat this chickpea based spread daily. I slather hummus on everything – sammies, veggies, Mr. B (what? jk), crackers, but never pizza.

Well folks, since National Hummus Day is tomorrow, why not celebrate this tasty food holiday with some hummus on pizza! OH, and not just any hummus, you gotta’ go Sabra style. Sabra hummus is hands down my favorite, especially the toasted pine nut. But for this pizza, I went original style and mixed in a little curry, slathered it on some buttery naan and topped it with coconut shrimp. I’m telling you this pizza is your density. Wait. Destiny. Excuse my Back to the Future jokes.
