Make This Delicious and Healthy Hummus Flatbread Pizza

Its healthier *and* faster than takeout.

Some would argue that this flatbread recipe is even better than pizza. And it’s a breeze to throw together. Start with store-bought naan (a traditional Indian flatbread), top it with protein-rich hummus, and tangy sumac (which has tons of health benefits). Then, finish with a fresh salsa of tomato, cucumber, and mint. Good for you, delicious, perfection.

  4. Transfer the naan to a cutting board and cut in wedges. Top with the tomato salsa, garnish with mint, and serve.
