This is a place where we smash diet culture. Meaning, there is no room for fad diets, eliminating food groups, juice cleanses or glorifying "clean eating." This blog is meant to bring truth and shed light on the fact that ALL foods provide us with energy no matter what. Food is meant to be enjoyed and my goal is to ultimately remove the guilt and shame that diet culture may have taught you & nurture a positive relationship with food.

NAAN Other Than My Favorite Pizza Recipes

Naan: a leavened bread of Indian origin that is round, flat, and soft.

Naan Pizza Trio

Basically what Merriam-Webster is trying to tell us is this bread is second to NAAN! The best part is you can buy it pre-made from your local grocery store and make yourself a Naan pizza in 15 minutes! I’ve rounded up 3 stellar flavor combo’s two savory and one sweet for you guys to try today. Scroll down to check out the Naan Pizza’s or perhaps it sparks you to create your own combination!

Naan pizza provides the ultimate combo of nutrients your body will always need. This includes your protein, starches (carbohydrates), fat, and veggies/fruit. When incorporating these items into each of your meals daily you will find yourself with a satisfying and nutrient dense meal. Let’s take a peek now at what this looks like!

Naan Pizza Combo #1:

Spicy Italian

Spicy Italian Sausage

For those who don’t like to explore new avenues with your taste buds here is a tried and true classic pizza for you with my own twist. I used Bilinski’s fully cooked spicy italian chicken sausage here and a knockout pizza sauce with minimal ingredients. If you want to find ways to make a pizza with better ingredients start by looking at what is in your pizza sauce! You’d be surprised to find a whole load of sugar in most this includes pasta sauces too.

Spicy Italian Naan Pizza

  • 1 Bilinski Spicy Italian Sausage ((sliced into rounds))
  • 4 Slices Fresh Mozzarella Cheese ((I love to use smoked Mozz by Miyokos))
  • 4 Slices Fresh Tomato
  • 2 Thinly sliced basil leaves
  • 1 Can Sprouts Pizza Sauce ((ingredients list is on point))
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano or Italian Herbs
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. You can add your toppings in any order you like. On these I did the Smoked Mozzarella first then the sausage and tomatoes and drizzled the pizza sauce all over the top plus the oregano.
  3. Place your Naan pizza in the oven anywhere from 15-20 minutes depending on how crispy you would like it to be! Keep an eye on it, once you see the cheese start to melt it is typically ready.
  4. Add your basil on top and enjoy!

Naan Pizza Combo #2:

Balsamic Peaches n’ Cheeze

Peaches n' Cheese

This is a seriously classic flavor combo inspiration brought to you by the many peach, feta, and pecan salads I’ve tried through the years. An overall classic combination that you just can’t go wrong with. So I said why not try and make it into a pizza!

Peaches n’ Cheeze Naan Pizza

  • 1/2 Fresh Peach ((sliced thinly))
  • 1/4 C Feta Cheese ((can use less if you prefer))
  • 1 small handful Arugula
  • Balsamic
  • Olive Oil
  • Italian Herb Blend
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Drizzle olive oil on to your Naan Bread
  3. Add the Feta cheese then the peaches and Italian herb blend
  4. Place in oven for 15 minutes. Then sprinkle your Arugula, and balsamic on.
  5. Slice and Enjoy!

Naan Pizza Combo #3:

Blueberry Basil with Honey

Blueberry n' Honey Pizza

This combo is going to sound extremely strange but I think we can all agree honey is a game changer. So in this case don’t knock it ’til you try it! Seriously, this pizza will rock your world and forever change pizza night.

  • 1/4 C Fresh Blueberries
  • 5 Slices Miyokos Smoked Mozzarella ((or any smoked mozzarella cheese))
  • 1-2 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Leaves Fresh Basil ((sliced thin))
  • Olive Oil
  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Brush on just a little bit of olive oil to coat the top side of your Naan bread.
  3. Add your cheese and then your blueberries. Place  it in the oven for 15 minutes or until the blueberry juices start to bubble.
  4. Take out and sprinkle on the basil and honey. Enjoy!

I hope you guys fall in love with these combinations just as much as I did. This is also a super fun and simple family night meal. All you do is create a pizza topping bar meaning you don’t have to do any cooking except turn on the oven and put a sheet pan in there. Let your guests piece together their own pizza and have them cook it to their own liking! An interactive dinner and minimal cooking and clean up for you! I call that a win win scenario.
