Our PCC Deli Black Bean Hummus is made from scratch using delicious ingredients like healthy black beans, sesame tahini, tamari and balsamic vinegar. The flavor is complex and zesty and makes the perfect base for these incredibly simple and nutrient-rich pizzas.

The combination of spicy chèvre and nutty Manchego is perfect with the caramelized shallots and the sweet bits of dried mango. Our Vicolo pizza crusts were developed in the kitchen of a neighborhood restaurant in San Francisco by the same name and are still made to traditional standards.

Preheat oven to 425° F.

In a small sauté pan, heat oil over medium heat and cook shallots, stirring frequently, until deep golden, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Place pizza crust on a baking sheet and spread hummus evenly over the surface. Distribute shallots and kale over the hummus. Top with all but a few tablespoons of the cheeses. Sprinkle with mango and pumpkin seeds and scatter the last of the cheeses evenly over the surface.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Garnish with fresh cilantro sprigs and serve with lime wedges and your favorite hot sauce.
