Greek Style Naan Pizza

Greek style naan pizzaMy husband and I pet and house-sitted my brother's place this weekend. Unfortunately, my brother and his wife didn't have much in their fridge and I had to come up with something to eat. In their freezer I found frozen Naan bread, which you can buy at Trader Joe's. I also found in their fridge a few Kalamata olives, feta cheese, one red bell pepper, sliced mushrooms and a jar of ready-made pesto. And voila, my Naan Pizza, Greek Style, was born! This makes a great light dinner or a great lunch.

INGREDIENTS (makes 2)

  • 2 frozen Naan from Trader Joes' (in the frozen food section)
  • 2 tablespoons ready-made pesto
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced into 1" strips
  • 6 chopped Kalamata olives
  • 6 sliced button or crimini mushrooms
  • 1/4 feta cheese, crumbled
  • Olive oil
  • A few grinds of fresh black pepper
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Place Naan on a baking sheet and thaw it in the oven for 2 minutes, then promptly remove.

Spread one tablespoon of pesto onto each naan bread. Top each naan with the red bell pepper strips, chopped olives and sliced mushrooms. Top each with the crumbled feta cheese and place the pizzas in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes, until veggies are heated through and feta cheese slightly melts.

Remove from oven and drizzle each naan with a little olive oil and a few grinds of black pepper and serve immediately.
