Naan bread? Then what is it?! (that is the lame joke that is heard in my kitchen every time I make this)

Need a break from the usual and easy meal item that the whole family can get behind. Allow me to introduce you to my weekend warrior – Naan Bread Pizza. For all of you hardcore carnivores out there, read my lips. MAKE IT HOW YOU WANT IT. If you want to take away some of the veggies I have and replace them with duck, bison, or steak by all means DO IT! For this version, I added turkey pepperoni and some prosciutto I had leftover from another recipe project a.k.a dinner these days.

I prefer whole wheat or the garlic naan. The great thing about whole wheat naan is that it is healthier for you than regular pizza crust and it stands up to a lot of toppings and doesn’t get soggy. I use 2 naan that feed my family of 3 a nice filling lunch.

If you want to get the kids involved so you do not have to worry about a bunch of picky flippin eaters, I recommend that you get all the veggies, cheese and other garnishes into little containers and wait for it…LET THEM MAKE THEIR OWN! Just remember to saute some of your veggies or not, but they will have better flavor if you saute them for a few minutes before adding them to the pizza and slapping it in the oven.

This is my go to on the weekends. When we are out running errands over the weekend, we NEVER time it right and we are all hungry, finding it harder and harder to resist the temptation of going out or hitting our favorite taco place which is smack dab in the middle of the stores and home. DAMN THAT PLACE!

But, when I tell my son and hubby that we just need to get home so mommy can make naan pizza, the speed increases slightly and before you know it, we are home. The deal is that I make the pizza and they put away the groceries. I usually have 1 piece as they devour the rest but that is the life of a mom. We saved money, calories, and time eating at home and everyone’s tummy is happy.

If you are a big fan of basil pesto, then you will love this recipe. I would way rather have pesto than pizza sauce. However, you can use pizza sauce. But, it really adds something special to this pizza and does not have the sugar content that normal sauces have. My boys prefer normal pizza sauce when we go to places like Mod Pizza but there was absolutely no complaints. There was no time for complaining between snarfing it down.

Hint:  Lidl (check out my review on his hot new grocery store alternative) carries a green and a red pesto and both are great. Try sneaking the red pesto by them.

I suggest drizzling my Cilantro Lime Crema over this for the perfect finishing touch! Make this ahead of time and keep it on tap in the fridge. It is good on almost anything!

I hope you enjoy this great little recipe. Remember, get creative! I merely laid the framework, now you make it custom to your liking. Don’t forget to leave me a comment, suggestion, picture, etc.

Until we eat again…



Mise en place! Get everything you are going to need out and ready. Preheat oven to 400F. Now dice the veggies.


In a hot skillet, add the oil and let that warm up. Add your diced onions and peppers to the pan and saute them for about 6 minutes or until the onions start losing their color and the peppers are softer. They will continue to cook in the oven so no need to overthink it. Turn off heat and set aside.


Once the over is at temperature, put your naan bread onto a sheet pan(s). Brush it with the basil pesto sauce (or use a spoon) but do not go right to the edge. Go almost to leave a pizza crust of sorts. Insert into the oven and bake it for 5 minutes. This yields a crispier crust.


Now, it is time to decorate. Top sauce with meats and spinach. Then add your pepper onion medley, cheese and seasonings (in that order). This is the time to think if there is anything else you want on this bad boy.


Pop it in the over for 10 minutes but you want to keep an eye on it. You want the crust a little brown but not burnt. Your oven could be hotter or colder than mine so do not walk away for too long! Pull it out, slice it however you want, and enjoy!
