About Naan Bread Pizzas
We’re all total converts to this quick pizza recipe, which is made up of passata, garlic and oregano spread over naan breads with a cheesy topping, plus the extra toppings of your choice (my favourite is pepperoni and red onion).
They cook in the oven in 10 minutes and the ingredients are cheap. If you have the energy you can make a side salad for lunch or add some homemade chips for dinner.
But when time is short and tummies are rumbling, these pizzas are always an easy win.
What you’ll need
- Naan breads
- Garlic powder
- Grated mozzarella
- Toppings – I use red onion and pepperoni but it’s your choice!
- Toppings – You can go for your favourites here, such as ham, peppers, cooked chicken – anything goes.
In the fridge In the doubtful event of leftovers, you can keep these in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheat again in the microwave or wrapped in foil in the oven.
In the freezer The pizzas freezes quite well too. Defrost them thoroughly before reheating in the microwave or reheat from frozen in the oven. Covering them with foil will stop them from burning at the edges.
Preheat them in the oven before adding your pizzas as this will help to crisp up the bases.
I can only urge you to try it and see what you think. We’re going for easy shortcut, delicious taste, and it definitely ticks those boxes – and it is honestly such a good alternative!
There’s also French bread pizzas or pittas to try if you like too, but they’re not quite as good.
You can cook your naan naked for 5 minutes before adding the topping if you want really crispy bases.
I do sometimes do this, but on the return to the oven with the toppings you need to watch carefully that the edges of the ‘pizzas’ don’t burn as they can get over cooked.
