Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 shop bought naan bread
  • 3 tbsp pizza sauce or vegetarian pesto
  • 9 oz (250g) mozzarella or vegan alternative

Suggested toppings:

  • 2 tsp sweetcorn
  • 4 button mushrooms thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp sliced black olives
  • ¼ red onion thinly sliced
  • ½ green pepper deseeded and finely chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 220C/430F.
  • Spread the pizza sauce or pesto onto the naans. Tear off small pieces of the mozzarella and add them to the naan pizzas, then add desired toppings.
  • Transfer to a baking sheet (don’t overcrowd them and use two trays if necessary). Bake for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the edges of the naan turn golden. Cut into slices and serve immediately.

Notes

  • If you like a crispy crust, then bake it for a few minutes before adding your toppings, or put it into the toaster for a few minutes.
  • Prefer Italian-style thin crust? Just grab a rolling pin and flatten the naan out a bit before adding sauce and toppings.
  • This is perfect for when the kids have friends over. Put out bowls of toppings and let them add their favourites.
  • Try making your own pizza sauce.
  • Make it gluten free by choosing a gluten free naan bread.
  • Make it vegan: Check the ingredients of the naan bread. Many are vegan and dairy free. Then be sure to choose vegan toppings and cheese.
