Naan pizza is my new favorite thing to make on busy weeknights. It is nothing more than regular pizza, but with naan (Indian flatbread) used as the crust. And this particular naan pizza has BUFFALO MUSHROOMS on it. That’s right, folks. Buffalo mushrooms.
I plan on making this once a week for at least the next year. It’s so easy, so quick, and so so so delicious.
I loveeee making homemade pizza. I have a very tasty whole wheat pizza dough recipe, which you can use in place of the naan for this if you want. I usually make pizza dough in bulk and freeze it in portions, but this still involves rolling out the dough and making a big ol’ mess with flour. Y’all know I love cooking things from scratch, but sometimes, it’s just not possible after a very busy day, or if you are soul-crushingly tired after being emotionally beaten by teenagers all day (ah, the life of a high school teacher).
And making pizza at home, either with a naan crust or a regular crust, is guaranteed to be healthier (and cheaper!) than take-out pizza.
So. Back to the naan.
You can make naan pizza any way you want. Sometimes, I’ll just whip up a quick cheese pizza or throw some basil and tomatoes on for a caprese pizza.
Here’s how you make a basic naan pizza….
