Naan Pizza

A while back I tried to make pizza using pre-made dough from Trader Joe's. At only .99 I figured it was worth a shot. The pizza came out pretty good but I did have a few issues with it. The crust never got very crusty and the amount was a lot for one person. I wanted to test out using naan, an Indian flat bread as the crust. A grown-up version of those English muffin pizzas, if you will. Naan is available in most supermarkets either fresh or frozen. I made a basic pizza but you can use any topping or sauce you wish. The naan got nice and crusty, a perfect thin crust personal pie. My only caveat is to be careful of how much you put on it. I didn't think I put enough cheese when it melted it spread out a lot. Next time, I will use less cheese. The toppings go a long way also. I put a ton of tomatoes on which weighed down the crust. I also added some mushrooms but there not really necessary. The result was still delicious. Fast and easy. I used good ingredients such a fresh mozzarella so the cost was not that cheap. But it's still cheaper than take out!

Ingredients: Serves Two
1 large naan or two small ones (I used whole wheat)
2 tablespoons pesto
1/4 cup fresh mozzarella cheese
1 large plum tomato, sliced

Method:

  • Pre-heat oven to 400.
  • Top naan with pesto, than tomatoes in slices, than cheese
