We all love pizza, but sometimes pizza during summertime can just feel too heavy. All that cheese and heavy sauce can weigh you down and make you feel like wearing a big t-shirt instead of a bathing suit. But if you're craving pizza, why not try a Grilled Summer Vegetables Hummus Pita Pizza with Sabra Hummus? It's delicious!

This recipe takes the basic idea of pizza, but adds tons of grilled veggies and uses Sabra Hummus instead of cheese and sauce. What does that mean? It means that you get a ton of nutritious veggies and protein. Serve this pizza at your next summer BBQ and your guests will not be disappointed. The Sabra Hummus adds a deliciously satisfying touch to a light, nutritious pizza!

3) Cut tomatoes in half and slice in 4-6 half moon wedges each. Place in bowl with 1 T olive oil and ¼ t salt and combine

4) Grill summer squash for about 4 minutes on each side. Grill onions about 5 minutes, rotating once. Grill tomatoes about 5 minutes, rotating once.
