Hummin Greens Pizza

1 Harris Teeter Farmers Market large tomato
3 cloves garlic
2 tsp. each basil, parsley, oregano
2 tsp. H.T. Traders extra virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 yellow or white Harris Teeter Farmers Market onion
1 bunch rainbow Swiss chard (or 1 lb. greens of your choice)
1/4 cup water
1 Tbsp. H.T. Traders balsamic vinegar
1 Harris Teeter Fresh Foods Market pizza dough
1/4 cup Harris Teeter shredded Parmesan cheese
2 (10 oz.) Harris Teeter Fresh Foods Market smoked paprika hummus

Preheat oven at 400° F. Cut top off of the tomato and loosen insides with a spoon. Mince garlic and place 2 cloves inside tomato. Mix basil, parsley and oregano and sprinkle half of mixture into tomato. Use 1/8 tsp. of the olive oil to grease a small baking dish the size of the tomato, and approximately 1 tsp. to drizzle over the tomato (both inside and outside). Roast the tomato for 20 minutes or until the inside bubbles and the skin begins to fall apart. Meanwhile, quarter and slice the onion and chop the stalk of the Swiss chard. Sauté with remaining olive oil on medium high heat for about 3 minutes or until onion is translucent. Add 1 clove garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Slice the chard in half along the stem. Roll tightly and slice in 1/2 inch strips. Place in sauté pan with rest of the ingredients and add water. Drizzle vinegar over chard, cover and reduce heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove tomato from oven and add to greens, breaking tomato apart with spoon before stirring. Flour cool surface and roll dough until size of 12” round pizza greased sheet. Fit dough to the pizza sheet and roll edges to make crust. Sprinkle half of Parmesan cheese and remaining spices over dough. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove pizza dough and let cool approximately 20 minutes.

Assemble by spreading hummus over pizza, then add greens and sprinkle rest of parmesan cheese over the top. Cut into quarters.

6 Harris Teeter egg whites
1 cup Harris Teeter spinach, chopped
1/2 cup Harris Teeter Farmers Market cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup Harris Teeter Farmers Market onion, diced
1/4 cup Harris Teeter Farmers Market bell pepper, diced (any color)
Dash of hot sauce (optional)

1/8 tsp. Harris Teeter ground pepper
1 tsp. H.T. Traders olive oil
4-5 leaves fresh basil, finely chopped (cilantro and parsley work as well)

Add salt and pepper and sauté for 3 minutes or until onions are soft, stirring constantly. Beat egg whites with wire whisk until bubbly (about 30 seconds). This is a good arm workout, too!
