Why Vegetarian Naan Pizza is a Great Meal
I love meals that are easy and quick to make. That's why I decided to make a vegetarian naan pizza that's also a nutritious meal.
I think you'll love this naan pizza recipe. You'll notice that this meal doesn't have any tomato sauce, and that's because it's a white pizza!
As a pescatarian (and former vegetarian), I'm often frustrated by dishes that don't supply enough protein to power me through my day...or even my afternoon or evening. So I set out to make a naan pizza recipe that offers an excellent amount of satiating protein.
I used packaged naan to make this recipe super easy. You could make the recipe even healthier by using whole-grain naan. If you're gluten free, you can try swapping out the naan for gluten-free pita bread.
The beauty of using naan for a pizza base is you don't have to worry about getting your hands on pizza dough.
When you put the pizza in the oven, you'll get the crispiest taste with a pizza stone. But you can also use baking sheets. Then just bake the pizza for about 15 minutes, and the super quick meal is ready to eat!
Naan Bread Topping Ideas
Now, let's chat about toppings for naan pizza. When thinking of good pizza toppings, contemplate more than taste. I chose white beans and mozzarella because they provide satiating vegetarian protein. And the tomatoes provide fiber and nutrients.
Here are additional ideas for naan bread toppings:
- Salt and pepper
- Fresh basil
- Black beans (a black bean pizza is also delish!)
- Pureed beans (use a food processor)
- Parmesan cheese
- A squeeze of lemon juice
