Extra cheese and extra garlic? Yes, please! No red sauce is needed for these mouthwatering naan pizzas.

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Arrange the naan breads onto the baking sheet.
  4. Drizzle 1 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. Finely mince the garlic.
  6. Sprinkle the naan pizzas with the minced garlic.
  7. Sprinkle an equal amount of shredded cheese over each naan pizza.
  8. Use a small spoon to drop an equal amount of ricotta by the spoonful over each naan pizza.
  9. Sprinkle the naan pizzas with the Italian seasoning.
  10. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven.
  11. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden and the naan is crisp.
  12. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  13. Allow the naan pizzas to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and garnish with basil leaves, if desired.
  14. Slice and serve.

I added some lettuce and tomato to the side to make dinner, but it smelled delicious and cheesey the whole time i made it. I also improvised on the herbs a bit and it tasted as good as it looked

it was delicious I cooked the garlic cloves in olive oil for about 10 mins on low and then chopped and added to pizza. i also added italian sausage fresh mushrooms and white onions it was amazing.

Added garlic salt and sautéed baby Bella mushrooms. Very tasty.
It was really good. The downsides of it were the garlic tasted raw so I might sauté in a skillet beforehand next time & 14 minutes was too long in our oven so I will probably turn down the heat a little and cook it for a shorter time frame
I did it on the grill instead very tasty
Very tasty- great way to use up leftover ricotta
