Naan Pizza

At times when I don’t have the time or desire to cook it’s easy to order pizza. At those times I also promise myself not to eat more than one pizza slice. I, here, shamelessly admit being that person that breaks promises [mostly to herself].

This naan pizza is as easy to cook as it is to make a phone call and much better for you.  Naan is an oven-baked flatbread. The size is just right, not too small or too big; yields no broken promises.

You can play with toppings of your choice. It’s a great way to use leftover veggies and meat cuts from the refrigerator.  I like to go light on the sauce and heavy on the cheese. I also like to use Ketchup for the sauce which is European style [not as weird as you might think].

If you are feeling rather adventurous, check out this old recipe for German-style flammkuchen pizza.  These are ingredients I had on hand for this naan pizza:

 

Ingredients:
Serves 2
1 package of 2 Naan
2 tablespoons Ketchup or pizza sauce, divided
1 cup sliced Mushrooms, divided
1 cup chopped Ham, divided
1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese, divided
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, divided
1 teaspoon Oregano, divided
Fresh Basil leaves
Few Cherry Tomatoes
Salt and Pepper

 

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Lay the naan on pizza stone or baking sheet. Spread ketchup or pizza sauce over the naan, season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and then sprinkle each with half of the mozzarella cheese. Top with other ingredients and Parmesan cheese. Bake pizza for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling.
Trust me, you’ll think twice before picking up the phone to order pizza again.

    I always though on naan as something to eat with chicken tikka masala, but now I am going to have to use it to make pizza. 😀

      We are addicted Mel. Always have some on hand for quick and easy meal. 🙂

  3. […] Since this pear and prosciutto pizza is just what the doctor ordered, I make it quite often. Naan bread comes in packs of two and it is perfect size for an individual pizza. Husband and I like to make them with different toppings and share. We always make German style pizza, das Flammkuchen, and then whatever toppings we have on hand, like in this Naan pizza. […]
