Naan Bread Pizzas 3 Ways

When I think about what I want in a weeknight meal, the words easy, nourishing, and of course, tasty come to mind. Typically, easy being highest up on the priority list.

What if I told you I’ve made homemade pizza easy, nourishing and tasty? I hope you’d believe me… because it’s true! Today I’m presenting to you 3 easy Naan Bread Pizza ideas that you can enjoy individually or share with the whole family. The best part? They come together less than 20 minutes.

These pizza combos have something for everyone – like the plant-based veggie-lover, the meat-eater, and the one who likes pineapple on pizza. Lol! Feel free to customize them to your own preferences, but I have to say they’re pretty dang delicious as they are.

If you’re leaning towards simplicity and ease, I recommend having pre-made pesto, canned pizza sauce, and canned pineapple chunks on hand. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can totally make your own sauces or use fresh pineapple. I’ll leave that up to you.

Pair these pizzas with a side salad for a well-rounded meal and bonus nutritional boost. I think they would be great with a garden or caesar salad. Or you could even just toss some mixed greens with olive oil and balsamic vinegar because once again, we’re all about delicious simplicity over here.

Now, less talk. More pizza.
