When you think of pizza, you probably picture a crust topped with tomato sauce, cheese, and sliced pepperoni. But when you make a plant-based version, that pie looks a little different. While there are plenty of different vegan cheeses available at the grocery store, Tabitha Brown has a healthy and delicious alternative. And all you need to do is grab the container of hummus from your refrigerator.

As part of a partnership with Sabra, the vegan chef created a fully vegan pizza that gets a protein-packed upgrade thanks to the addition of hummus. "It takes the place of cheese. And if you don't want to use the original hummus, you can also switch things up with the red pepper hummus," she says. "It's quick, easy, and you don't have to wait for the cheese to melt." Well, I'm officially sold.
