Cranberry, Apple and Sausage Mini-Pizzas with Hummus

Through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program I was recently offered the opportunity to try out a Sabra product of my choice. I am already a HUGE fan of Sabra Hummus, so I could have just got the container of hummus and went home to devour it with my husband. Instead, I decided to create a recipe using it - still leaving enough hummus to enjoy with some pita chips later. ;)

I got the idea for the pizza from a wonderful Cranberry Apple Sausage Stuffing that I made for Thanksgiving a few years ago. The flavors worked great together and I vowed to make it again and again. I am not going to lie – I never made the stuffing again, just thought about it as the holidays came and went each year. 

The idea for using Hummus on a pizza came from my trip to the 2011 Foodbuzz Blogger Festival. At the Welcome Reception there was an array of items made with Sabra Hummus. One of my favorites was the JalapeƱo Hummus Mini-Pizzas. They were so, so, so good. I had never fathomed of putting hummus on a pizza, but it was pure genius. So I vowed to make my own little hummus pizzas one day… and I did. ;)

Cranberry, Apple and Sausage Mini-Pizzas with Hummus
3 whole wheat English muffins
¼ cup Sabra Roasted Garlic Hummus
2 Granny Smith apple wedges, sliced
½ cup cheese, I used a blend of Mozzarella and Provolone
2 tablespoons dried cranberries
¼ cup maple sausage, cooked and crumbled

1. Preheat oven to BROIL
2. Slice each English muffin in half and place on baking pan face up. BROIL until golden brown, about 4 minutes
3. Let cool for 5 minutes
4. Heat oven to 425
5. Spread hummus evenly over each english muffin and top with ingredients in this order; apple, cheese, dried cranberries and maple sausage
6. BAKE for 10 minutes or until cheese is turning golden brown
7. Let cool for a few minutes and then enjoy!
