Mediterranean Hummus Flatbread
Bring the flavors of the Mediterranean to your next dinner party with this Mediterranean Hummus Flatbread brimming with flavor and nutrition.
For as long as I can remember, hummus has been in the refrigerator of any home I have lived in. My memories of hummus in my parents’ house when I was growing up are mainly of my brother dipping chunks of challah in the creamy smooth dip. In college, it was one of the few perishable foods I kept in the mini fridge in my dorm room. Now in my own home, I keep at least one container in the fridge at all times (and there’s usually a spare in my basement refrigerator) to be used as a sandwich spread or (more commonly) as the dip of choice with baby carrots when my kids and husband are too ravenous to wait for dinner.
While it’s certainly easy to serve hummus with some fresh veggies and pita chips for dipping as a pre-dinner hors d’oeuvres when I have company for dinner, sometimes I like to do something a little more creative. That’s where this Mediterranean Hummus Flatbread comes in. It’s super easy to make, requires very little prep, and can easily be modified based on personal preferences for toppings.

Mediterranean Hummus Flatbread
Whole wheat flatbreads topped with the flavors of the Mediterranean make fun finger-food for a party or a quick and easy dinner at home.
- 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced into half moons
- 1 medium yellow bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil
- 3 to 4 whole wheat lavash flatbreads
- 6 to 8 tablespoons hummus, divided ( ~2 Tbsp per lavash)
- 3/4 cup sliced radishes
- 1/4 cup halved Kalamata olives
- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
- Aged balsamic vinegar
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and set aside.
- Heat olive oil over medium heat in a small saute pan. Saute onion about 5 minutes until translucent. Add peppers to the pan and saute about 7 minutes more until vegetables are tender. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
- Add sun-dried tomatoes to the pan and saute about 2 to 3 minutes until heated and oil is released. Using a pair of tongs, transfer sun-dried tomatoes to a small bowl. Pour the oil into a separate small dish and set aside. (This step is not necessary, but the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes is so flavorful. I highly recommend it!)
- For each lavash, bake lavash 3 minutes per side. Remove from oven and spread 2 heaping tablespoons of hummus on top. Top with sauteed onions and peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, radishes, and olives, and feta. Drizzle with some of the reserved oil from the tomatoes. Bake for 8 minutes until flatbread is crisped and cheese has begun to melt.
- To serve, drizzle with aged balsamic vinegar and sprinkle za'atar on top. Slice into 9 to 12 pieces (depending on size of lavash) and serve warm.

I love all the Mediterranean flavors and I love hummus 😉 Wonderful dish!
Thank you – it’s a super yummy combo!
Nice recipe Jessica, I hope you win :)! I’m always adding sauteed veggies to my meals, I’m sure it’d taste wonderful with flatbread and hummus. I don’t have sun dried tomatoes right now, you think the flavor will change much if I add fresh tomatoes in cubes?
Thanks so much Liv! I think raw tomatoes would be great too!
I have never ever seen a combo like this so bravo on the creativity. Seeing these photos make me want to reach into my screen and try! This flatbread with all the yummy toppings looks so good!
Thanks so much Chrissa! I hope you give it a try!
I love the idea of using hummus on flatbread. These flavors together sound amazing!
Thanks Christine – it’s a great way to increase the protein!
That hummus is delish and I love this pizza concept! I’ll have to try a dairy-free version.
I couldn’t believe I had never tried the roasted garlic flavor before – it was amazing! The flatbread would be great even without the cheese!
I was waiting for this-yum!!! I love the addition of the balsamic, a must for me. Can’t wait to try this!!! I just ordered a lifetime supply of my favorite Lavash wraps (Joseph’s Bakery- you may know them!?) and am making this as soon as it arrives!
Thank you Liz! The balsamic adds just that little bit of extra flavor to make the dish. And it’s pretty! I haven’t tried Joseph’s lavash, but will have to look for them. Please let me know if you make it – would love your feedback!
Yum! I could make this every night and be happy. I love the idea of using the sun-dried tomato flavored oil too!
Thanks so much Kim! I didn’t originally plan to use it, but the sun-dried tomatoes were all clumped together from the fridge, so when I heated them to loosen them up and the oil heated and released it smelled so good I said no way am I letting it go to waste!
I’m sure! I would have used it too, sun-dried tomatoes are one of my favorite things. So much flavor in those little guys!
Two of my favorites meet into one delicious dish?! yes please… is it dinner time yet?!
haha…you can have this flatbread any time of the day!
What a super creative mix of veggies. Love the sundried tomatoe oil idea too!
Thanks so much Serena! I was originally thinking of a Greek salad and I just went from there!
Looks amazing Jessica! Love the idea of making it during the half time show!
Thank you Diane! I always think it’s fun to have an interactive activity at parties 🙂
This looks awesome! As usual, we’re on the same wavelength- I made a socca pizza 🙂 Good luck in the contest!
Haha…so funny how we think alike! What’s even crazier is that I was going to make the recipe with farinata as a base! We just got back from Genoa a little over a month ago and had it for the first time and it’s on my list of recipes to develop! how funny!
Oh my yum!! This looks SO SO SO good!! Seriously. Like my mouth is watering so good! 🙂
Thanks so much Rachel!
