I love meals that are easy and quick to make. So I decided to make a naan bread
pizza that's also a nutritious meal. I think you'll love this tomato and white bean pizza!
As a vegetarian, I'm often frustrated by dishes that don't supply enough protein to power me through my day. So I set out to make a naan pizza recipe that offers an excellent amount of satiating protein! I used packaged naan to make the recipe super easy! You could make the recipe even healthier by using whole-grain naan.
When thinking of good pizza toppings, I'm contemplating more than taste. I chose white beans and mozzarella because they provide satiating vegetarian protein. And the tomatoes provide fiber and nutrients.
Each serving of this white bean pizza offers 16 grams of
protein, or 32 percent of the daily value. This is due to the white beans that I used as a base and a topping, as well as the mandatory mozzarella!
I hope you enjoy this vegetarian naan pizza. It makes a great lunch or dinner! If you love recipes with beans, you'll also enjoy my lupini bean salad, my vegetarian rice bowl, my vegetarian lentils, and my healthy roasted chickpeas.
