This unique deep dish pizza starts with a falafel-inspired crust of chickpeas, fresh herbs, and spices. Once crispy from the oven, it's topped with a vibrant beet hummus and vegetables of your choice. The finishing touch is a layer of cheesy tahini sauce that gets spread over the vegetables once they've roasted. Try different vegetables each time you make this pizza to find out which ones you like best!
