    Naan Pizza Recipe

    Naan pizza is a brilliant idea for a quick and simple meal. It’s quicker than delivery, better for you, and more delicious. It can be done in only 15 minutes.

    Naan Pizza is the easiest, most convenient supper ever. Try this: it beats delivery pizza in speed, healthiness, and flavour. And if you can cook delicious pizza at home, why would you ever want to buy pizza delivery? It’s perfect for when you don’t have a lot of time to put up a meal but still want something satisfying for dinner. To make a naan pizza, it’s simple to grab a package of pre-made naan bread from the supermarket’s aisles. You can forget about ordering in or ordering frozen pizza again. This is a technique that Alex and I have used many times before, so I thought I’d share the steps with you.

    Naan pizza: the recipe

    Now, here’s the catch. Adding condiments to naan bread is an oversimplification. How to prepare naan pizza, according to us:

    • Get some of your preferred naan (or leftover homemade naan). It’s the Indian flatbread you may get in the bread or foreign cuisine section of the supermarket. Brands vary in taste and consistency, so you may need to try a few before you discover one you like. Use any of our garlic naan or vegan naan that has been sitting around.
    • The key is to prebake the naan on the oven grate before placing it in the oven. If you want the naan to be as sturdy as pizza crust, you’ll need to prebake it. Skipping this step will result in a crust that is much too thin. The recommended cooking time is 3 minutes on the oven grates at 450 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by another 2 minutes on the other side.
    • Spread toppings on top and bake for 3 minutes. Then, pile on the toppings and pop it in the oven until the cheese melts. Let’s talk about toppings for a while.

    Make our ridiculously delicious pizza sauce in only 5 minutes.

    Since we know how busy you are, you may choose to use jarred pizza sauce. However, if you’re looking to save some time, you may use our Easy Pizza Sauce. Only three basic ingredients—garlic, canned tomatoes, and olive oil—are required to make this delicious sauce in a blender. It’s fantastic, y’all. Tastes so flavorful, garlicky, and authentic that you’ll be transported to an Italian grandma’s kitchen. If you’re able and willing to do so, we strongly suggest it.
