Easy Weeknight Naan Pizzas
This is one of my favorite go-to week night dinners. I love pizza, but ordering delivery is not always a healthy or cost effective option. The naan pizza takes about 10-15 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake. When I am having an extremely busy week I usually make whole wheat pasta with part of the pasta sauce one night and then use the remainder of the sauce for the naan pizza another night. I love piling on the vegetables and using a lean protein such as low fat sausage, Canadian bacon, lean ground beef or grilled chicken. The meat is not necessary and vegetables with a part skim mozzarella can make a great vegetarian option. This can also be a great way to get the kids involved (and eating more veggies) when choosing their own toppings for the pizza. Here are the steps to making the perfect (and individualized) naan bread pizza.
Place the naan bread on a cookie sheet
Spread pasta or pizza sauce on the Naan bread. This can be store bought or better yet home made. This time I did the store bought pizza sauce to save some time.
Sprinkle with shredded cheese
Cut up vegetables and cook protein (in not already cooked)
Add as many vegetables as possible and lean protein
Once the pizza is ready throw it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes
Take the pizzas out of the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes and enjoy!
