Vegan Greek Pizza

Hummus and tomato sauce are slathered onto a thick crust and piled with Kalamata olives, artichoke hearts and fresh herbs to create this flavor-packed vegan Greek-inspired pizza.

This is how big of a dork I am. Every year I agonize about what I’m going to post on Pi Day, to the extent that, more often than not, I usually don’t manage to come up with anything special and end up posting a sandwich, or some boring food that has nothing to do with math. (Edit: okay, I did get my act together last year, and it was superb. Maybe I’m getting the hang of this.)

This year, it hit me: vegan Greek pizza! Because what better way to celebrate a beloved Greek letter than with a Greek-inspired pizza pie.

This is totally inauthentic. In fact, to the best of my knowledge, there is such a thing as a Greek pizza, but it has more to do with the style of crust than the toppings. This one is all about the toppings.

I’m really glad I came up with this one, because I think it’s my all-time favorite pizza. (I’m sure I said that before at some point, but this is my new favorite.) It all starts with a layer of hummus. I’ve made hummus pizza before but this one is a little different, because it also includes sauce. Hummus on the bottom, sauce on the top, and I promise you won’t miss the cheese.

Between the hummus, sauce, and a handful of toppings, this pizza is pretty substantial. Make sure you use a nice sturdy crust! I’m not the best dough roller, and a number of times I’ve made pizza and had to patch little holes in the crust because I stretched it too thin. Try to avoid that with this one. If you roll your crust too thin or if it has some weak spots the pizza will still taste good, but you’ll have to eat it with a fork.

CourseEntree CuisineAmerican, Greek, Italian Prep Time 20 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes Total Time 40 minutes Servings 6 Calories 470 kcal Author Alissa Saenz


  • 1poundpizza dough,store-bought or homemade
  • 1tablespoonolive oil
  • 1-2tablespoonscornmeal,optional

For the Sauce:

  • 115 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 3garlic cloves,minced
  • 2teaspoonsdried oregano
  • 1teaspoonvegan granulated sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Hummus:

  • 115 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3tablespoonstahini
  • 3tablespoonsolive oil
  • 2tablespoonslemon juice
  • 2garlic cloves
  • ½teaspoonground cumin
  • Salt to taste

For Topping:

  • 1cupKalamata olives,halved
  • ½cupmarinated artichoke hearts
  • ¼cupsliced fresh basil leaves
  • 2scallions,chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.­ Lightly oil a baking sheet.
  2. Roll the dough to a 12 to 14 inch circle and carefully transfer to the baking sheet. Brush the edges with olive oil and optionally sprinkle with cornmeal. Place into the oven and bake until browned and puffy, about 20 minutes.
  3. Make the sauce while the crust bakes. Place tomatoes, garlic, oregano, and sugar into a small saucepan and set over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, lower heat, and allow to simmer, stirring occasionally, until it thickens up a bit, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. While the crust bakes and the sauce simmers, make the hummus. Place the chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and cumin into a food processor bowl and blend until smooth. You can thin the mixture with 1 to 2 tablespoons of water in order to smooth it out if you like, but try to keep it relatively thick. Season with salt to taste.
  5. When the crust has finished baking, spread the top with hummus in an even layer. Spread the sauce over the hummus, then distribute the olives, artichoke hearts, basil and scallions over the sauce.
  6. Slice and serve.
