Naan + Pizza

In the spirit of quick recipes, we present to you naan pizza. Credit goes to H for this masterpiece.

This was the perfect Friday night meal. It was easy to customize, quick to prepare, and quick to cook. We made two varieties, and both were fab.

Garlic Naan Pizza
2-3 Servings

3 frozen Trader Joe's Naan (We used Garlic, but Tandoori would work just as well!)
2 tbsp cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup pasta sauce
1/2 onion, diced
2 green chilies, finely chopped
1 large tomato, thinly sliced
3/4 cup shredded cheese (we used jalapeno pepper jack)
3 tsp pizza seasoning

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place garlic naans on a baking sheet, and bake for 5-7 minutes, until soft and lightly browned. Remove naans, and keep the oven at 425 degrees.
Then, prepare pizzas.
For the cream cheese based naans, start by spreading about 1 tbsp cream cheese per naan. Top with sliced tomato, onion, and green chili.  Add 1 tsp pizza seasoning per naan. Finish with cheese.
For the pasta sauce based naan, start by spreading pasta sauce on naan. Top with onion and green chili. Add 1 tsp pizza sauce per naan. Finish with cheese.
Once pizzas are assembled, place back in oven and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes, until cheese is completely melted.
Remove from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes before slicing and serving.

Fun fact: I loved the cream cheese base, while H preferred the pasta sauce base.

This would be great meal for a group as well - easy to customize and each guest could "build" their own pizza. The possibilities are endless.
