Dreaming of a vacation to the South of Italy? Bring the flavors of Naples to your home kitchen with these quick and easy Margherita naan pizzas.

Ingredients

  • 4 pieces naan
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2/3 cup pizza sauce (or marinara sauce)
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1 large tomato (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 basil leaves
  • sea salt flakes

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425° F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Arrange the naan breads onto the baking sheet.
  4. Drizzle ½ tsp. of olive oil over each naan bread. Using the back of a spoon or clean hands, rub the oil over the surface of each bread.
  5. Spoon a generous 2 Tablespoons of pizza sauce onto the center of each naan bread. Use the back of a spoon to spread it into an even layer, leaving a ½” border.
  6. With a sharp knife, slice the mozzarella into rounds a scant ¼” thick.
  7. Optional: Slice the tomato into slices 1/8” thick.
  8. Finely mince the garlic.
  9. Stack the basil leaves on top of each other and roll into a tight log. With a sharp knife, make very thin slices across the log, creating ribbons of basil.
  10. Arrange an equal amount of the mozzarella slices over each naan bread.
  11. Optional: Evenly distribute the tomato slices over each naan pizza.
  12. Sprinkle the naan pizzas with the minced garlic, and half of the basil ribbons. Reserve the other half for garnish.
  13. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven.
  14. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the naan is crisp.
  15. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  16. Allow the naan pizzas to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes. Top with the reserved basil ribbons, and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt.
  17. Slice and serve.
