Looking for a fun way to entertain this summer? Consider a different kind of pizza party using Pacific hummus and beans. Our new shelf-stable hummus is easy to keep on hand, and comes in three tasty flavors: Classic, Roasted Garlic and Roasted Red Pepper. Together with six varieties of Pacific beans, you have the perfect foundation for countless tasty pizza and flatbread combinations.
Mix and match toppings, cheeses and crusts for a pizza line up that will appeal to any taste or dietary need. You can put out several different crusts, “sauces” (or “bases” as we call them here,) cheeses and toppings and let your friends and family come up with their own culinary creations. Here are a few of our favorite “pizzas.”
