Naan Pizza

Here is credit where credit is due:  my son created this pizza and eats it frequently.  He made it for me and I knew immediately it would make an appearance on Tracy Cooks it Right.

Naan bread has found it's way to most stores these days.  It's an oval-shaped flat bread a little thicker than pita.  I love the chewy texture of the whole wheat version, and the size is perfect for two lunch portions of pizza.

No way did Clark use "lite" cheese or (thrown together) homemade marinara sauce.  Prosciutto also found it's way under the cheese on his.  But even made my way, this lunch was quick and delicious and will make an appearance again real soon.

Naan Pizza

4 whole wheat naan breads (I used "Good Life" brand)
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
8 teaspoons pesto, homemade or storebought
6 ounces sliced lite provolone cheese

Place naan breads on griddle preheated to medium high heat to get warm on one side.  In small bowl, combine tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.  Flip naan breads and spread tomato sauce almost to the edge of each one.

Spread 2 teaspoons pesto on top of tomato sauce on each naan bread.  Lay cheese slices evenly over pesto.  Continue cooking on griddle until cheese is melted.  Cut each naan bread into 4 slices.  Makes 8 (2-slice) servings, 5 points plus for Weight Watchers or 206 calories each.

  1. Someone suggested you split the pita bread layers for a crispier crust. I don't know if that would work with Naan, but your pizza looks delicious.
