Naan Pizza



Kyle and I make homemade pizza a lot - I usually get dough from Trader Joes or the thin crust from Pillsbury. No matter how hard I tried, the dough was never quite right. It always stayed floppy in the middle no matter how long I baked it before taking it out and adding toppings. 

SO, I took matters into my own hands and a few months ago discovered that naan makes a great pizza crust!  I bought some and made pizza with it and voilá. Pizza night has never been the same. 

Naan pizza is the easiest thing ever and it is actually really good.

Here's how to make the magic happen:

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

You will need:

Naan bread (I use a store brand, but a brand like Stonefire should work just the same!)

Mozzarella Cheese - I just get a block of it and cut off - you'll see in pics below.

Toppings of your choice - We usually do a margarita style pizza but anything goes!

Olive oil for drizzling

Pizza Sauce (I swear by Trader Joes fat free pizza sauce. It's so good!)

Ok! First things first, prep your naan. Put
It on a non stick baking sheet and put a drizzle of olive oil and a little garlic. I spread it out with a silicone basting brush.


Bake for 5 minutes. The purpose of this step is to firm up the naan a bit and get it ready for toppings and sauce. 

While that's getting nice and toasty, cut and prep your toppings. The beauty of this is that you can use anything! Veggies, chicken, sausage, you name it! One of my favorites is just fresh basil and mozzarella. 

I used jalapeños and pepperoni for Kyle, and onions and black olives for mine. 



Remove Naan from oven, and add a thin layer of pizza sauce, spreading to edges.
If you want a more distinct crust, do not spread all the way. When I make it I like to extend the sauce all the way to the edges.

Put the toppings right on top! I put toppings on and then cheese so that the toppings stay put! Either way works.


You'll see that I just cut mozzarella right off the block, and then just tear it in half, putting it together like a puzzle so there is not too much space without cheese. 


Bake for another 5-7 minutes, until cheese is melted to your liking!




I added roasted garlic last minute as you can see above.



Now sit down, relax, grab a glass of wine, and enjoy!

Let me know what you think!
