Ingredients

  • 1 small orange or yellow bell pepper, cut into thin slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 frozen pizza dough, defrosted (9-ounce)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon store bought hummus
  • 1 small tomato on the vine, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives, halved
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • pinch dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dill

Preparation

In a small sauté pan, cook bell pepper slices with olive oil over medium high heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until slightly softened.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450 F. Sprinkle a rimless baking sheet with 1 tablespoon flour and set aside.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out pizza dough to a 10-inch circle and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Prick dough all over with a fork to help prevent large bubbles from forming during baking. Spread dough with hummus and then layer on sliced tomato, bell peppers, olives and feta. Sprinkle with oregano.

Bake for 12 to 16 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese looks hot. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with dill. Cut into 6 to 8 wedges and serve immediately.
