Naan pizza is so insanely easy to make! Store-bought naan bread pizza is drizzled with olive oil and garlic then topped with chopped prosciutto, fontina cheese, fig jam and a bunch of fresh arugula!
I don’t know what’s come over me, but I have been sluggish these past few weeks. If I had to pinpoint the start of my lazy season, it would be since our family vacation to the beach back in July. I spent so much time preparing for that trip (personally and with the blog) that by the time I was able to sit my butt on the hot sand I had no more energy to devote to anything else. Unfortunately, I still don’t.
Is this just the dog days of summer or burnout? All I want to do (in no particular order) is to read, online window shop and nap. I don’t even feel like cooking, which doesn’t bode well for my family. We’ve had several “whatever you want to eat” types of meals and breakfast for dinner more often than I care to admit.
I haven’t been into making elaborate meals. Easy is my modus operandi right now, and these naan pizzas fit that to a tee. This recipe is almost too simple to be a recipe and it is 100% adaptable. Naan bread can be found in most supermarkets; in my Kroger, I found mine near the bakery bread.
How To Make Naan Pizza
I topped my pizza with a drizzling of olive oil, minced garlic, Fontina cheese, chopped prosciutto and spoonfuls of fig jam. The pizzas only need to bake long enough for the cheese to get bubbly then hit each pizza with a fresh bunch of arugula before you serve them. I love the combination of the salty prosciutto and the sweet figs, but apricot jam would work nicely in place of the fig jam. You could absolutely leave out the jam entirely and maybe add caramelized onions instead. Bacon could be used if you don’t want to splurge on prosciutto and Brie can be substituted for fontina. Think of your naan as a blank canvas waiting for your culinary imagination!
- 4 pieces of naan bread (2 packs)
