Course: Dinner, lunch, Main Course
Cuisine: American, Italian
Keyword: naan bread, pizza
Servings: 4 naan pizzas
- 4 naan breads
- 1 fresh mozzarella ball
- 8 tablespoon pizza sauce
- handful fresh basil
Preheat the oven to 355 °F / 180 °C / 160 °C fan oven.
Add the naan breads to a baking sheet. I use these reusable silicone sheets from Amazon! Cover the pizza in a thin layer of sauce, and your cheese of preference. Add any toppings you like.
Bake the naan pizzas in the oven until the toppings are heated through, and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.
Serve the pizzas immediately while they are still hot.
Toppings and variations
Toppings are the most important part of the pizza. Any of your favorite pizza toppings can be added to plain naan breads. Here are some of the most common varieties, along with my personal recommendations:
Cheese pizza: Add tomato sauce and a mixture of grated cheese.
Veggie pizza: Add a combination of your favorite vegetables. You can also add grated cheese on top, or omit the cheese for a vegan pizza. Try eggplant, peppers, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and arugula!
Pepperoni pizza: Add a tomato sauce base, and cover with grated cheese and sliced pepperoni.
Margherita pizza: Add a tomato sauce base, and cover with fresh mozzarella. Add basil leaves after the pizza has cooked.
Hawaiian pizza: Add a tomato sauce base, grated cheese, and ham and pineapple on top.
Buffalo pizza: Use a thin layer of buffalo sauce, and top with shredded chicken and grated cheese. Serve with a healthy homemade ranch dip.
BBQ chicken pizza: Cover with a BBQ sauce base, and top with grated cheese, sliced or shredded chicken and red onions.
Meat feast pizza: Add tomato sauce, grated cheese and a combination of different meat.
Leftover naan pizzas can be stored in a refrigerator for up to 2 days.
If you make a naan pizza assembly table, you can store the leftover ingredients separately for up to several days, and assemble and cook the naan pizzas as required.
You can also assemble pizzas as freeze them without cooking. Use them as you would use store bought frozen pizzas; add them directly to an oven and bake until they have heated through and are golden on the edges.
