Cooking Time



For the Dough:

  • 2 cups gluten-free flour
  • 1/3 cup hummus
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

For the Filling:

  • 15 ounces tofu
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • Sun-dried tomato pesto (optional)


  1. Prepare the dough by combining flour, hummus, baking powder, and water with a spatula until you have a dough. Now prepare a 7-inch springform pan with parchment paper and bake the crust for around 15 minutes at 390°F.
  2. While the crust is in the oven, combine tofu, hummus, garlic, and nutritional yeast in the bowl of a blender. Process until smooth and creamy.
  3. Give the filling over the baked dough and return to the oven for another 20 minutes. When done garnish with my optional sun dried tomato pesto, if desired.
