If you enjoy this pesto naan pizza recipe, check out these easy dinner ideas!
I went vegetarian a couple of months ago, so I’ve been cooking with a lot of the same few ingredients while I figure out my new groove in cooking meatless meals every night. It’s not hard, but I’ve found that it does require some more thought than I was used to!
I’ve really been into simple Italian flavors lately, so a lot of our dinners have had a base of pesto, tomatoes, basil and bright greens like spinach or kale. One meal we’ve really been enjoying is personal pesto pizzas!
These are ready in about fifteen minutes and since we’re using naan as the crust, they’re the perfect little single serve pizza!
Some would say that pizza makes the world go round! What is better than a freshly baked personal pan pizza just for you? These pizzas can easily be personalized to fit your likes. Here are the main ingredients that you’ll be needing for this pizza.
Naan Bread: The thing I love the most about using naan bread is the fact that it tastes phenomenal. Plus there’s no cooking it or anything you have to do to prepare the bread to make pizza with it.
Pesto: You can either make your own homemade basil pesto or buy it pre-packaged. Pre-packaged is obviously going to be the easiest method. However, fresh basil pesto is amazing.
Toppings: For the toppings, I opted to go with shredded mozzarella cheese, spinach, grape tomatoes, and a little bit of salt and pepper. You can stick with the same toppings or if you want to make some adjustments that’s more than fine too.
Preheat oven to 400F. Place naan on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread pesto on naan, leaving about an inch of room for the crust. Sprinkle cheese over pesto and top with spinach.
Place tomatoes over spinach, sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until cheese has melted and naan has browned to your liking.
