20190805 caprese naan pizzas nm 3.jpg?ixlib=rails 2.1

Inspired by the Italian summer salad with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil, these naan pizzas take advantage of summer produce at its peak. We featured a similar meal using pesto, but this time we're topping the pizzas with a simple garlic oil.
Smarts: Be sure to slice the tomatoes and cheese very thin or they may release too much moisture onto the naan crust during cooking.

Prep

  1. Make garlic oil - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven / grill heating before continuing with prep.) Chop garlic and combine with olive oil. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Zucchini / Cheese - Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Peaches / Tomatoes - If cooking on the grill, halve peaches and remove pits. If serving fresh, cut into slices. Slice tomatoes. (Note: Be sure to slice the tomatoes as thin as possible to prevent them from releasing too much moisture while cooking.)

Make

  1. If cooking on the grill: Heat grill to 400F / 204C degrees, leaving one part of grill over indirect heat. Clean grates and brush with some cooking oil.
  2. If cooking in the oven: Heat oven to 400F / 204C.
  3. {grill}: Brush zucchini and peaches with cooking oil. Season zucchini with some salt and pepper. Spread naan out in a single layer on a sheet pan (this will serve as space to assemble pizzas while working at the grill).
  4. {oven}: Spread zucchini out on a sheet pan. Toss with cooking oil and season with some salt and pepper. Transfer to the oven and roast until zucchini is tender, ~15 minutes.
  5. {oven}: Place naan on sheet pans and bake for 5 minutes to crisp up (this will help keep them from getting soggy from the toppings).
  6. {grill}: Place zucchini over direct heat and sear on all sides. Continue cooking until tender. Add peaches, cut-side down, and cook just until cut-side is golden brown. Set zucchini and peaches aside. Place naan over direct heat and toast on both sides just until starting to crisp up, ~2 minutes per side.
  7. Brush naan with garlic oil. Top with a single layer of tomato slices. Sprinkle with some salt and then top with cheese.
  8. {grill}: Slide naan back onto grill over indirect heat. Continue cooking with the lid closed until cheese is melted, 5 to 7 minutes more.
  9. {oven}: Return sheet pan with naan to oven and continue cooking until naan is golden brown and cheese is bubbly, 8 to 10 minutes more.
  10. Top warm pizzas with fresh basil leaves and slice into wedges.
  11. Serve naan pizzas with zucchini and peaches on the side. Enjoy!

Used the indoor cooking option and heated the peaches briefly in a pan. We liked the flavors but didnt like the combination of textures. Between the roasted zucchini and warm peaches, a lot of the plate was slightly mushy.

So simple and deceivingly great. The grilled peaches are basically pie when you add a little cinnamon!
