Naan Pizza

 I am not a big fan of frozen naans. My husband had stocked some frozen ones when i was away couple of months ago. I was thinking of some excuse to not use it at all. But then as i was blog hopping i found a novel way to use the naan.

This is a totally cool fusion recipe!

Yes, it was to mkae pizza out of it. Whenever we order pizza, i am not a happy camper as i don't like the thick crust pizzas! My husband and my son will unanimously go for domino's thick crust and leave me guity of eating lots of carbs!

Naan pizza gives you a thin crust and you can add any toppings you want. All you need is some marinara sauce and a little creativity!

So here you go with the recipe!

  • Tandoori naan ( frozen or regualr from whole foods/ trader joe's) 1 per person
  • Store bought marinara sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Red Onion thinly sliced
  • For topping _ chopped red pepper, broccoli, jalapeno peppers and some frozen corn.
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt to taste

  • Pre heat oven to 400F
  • in a pan add the olive oil, saute the onions till soft.
  • Add the vegetables and saute for 5 mins. add salt to your taste and turn the heat off.
  • Arrange the naan on a baking sheet.
  • Add 1 tbsp of marinara sauce on top of the naan and spread it.
  • add the veggie toppings and shredded cheese.
  • Bake for 10 mins till the cheese is bubbly.
Enjoy this total family pleaser!
