Caprese Naan Pizza
with peaches / zucchini

Active: 45 min Total: 45 min

This meal feels fresh and summery whether you cook it on the grill or inside. It was first featured in 2018.
Smarts #1: If you're cooking this meal on the grill, you have the option to lightly sear the peaches. This brings out their natural sugars. If you prefer (or if you are cooking indoors), just slice the peaches and serve them raw.
Smarts #2: If making soup later this week, make a double batch of pesto to use in both meals.

Make

  1. Heat grill to 400F / 204C degrees. Clean grates and brush with some cooking oil.
  2. Brush zucchini with cooking oil and season with some salt and pepper. Brush cut-side of peaches with some oil. Spread naan out on a sheet pan (this will serve as a space to assemble pizzas while working at the grill).
  3. When grill is heated, 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.
  4. Spread naan out on grill and cook on one side until lightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer naan to sheet pan, cooked side up. Top each piece of naan with pesto (reserve half if doubled) and cheese. Slide naan back onto grill and cook, lid closed, until cheese is melted, 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Toss tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and season with some salt and pepper. Spoon tomatoes over naan.
  6. Serve naan pizzas with zucchini and peaches on the side. Enjoy!

Took the advice of others to thinly slice the tomatoes on put them on top when baking. We used pita bread that ended up being quite soggy the first go around. The second night we made this, we increased the oven temperature to 500 degrees F which resulted in a better consistency with the "pizza" base and better cooked cheese. We added some extra spinach we had lying around to this the second night as well. Omitted the zucchini and served with a side salad instead.

Doubled veg by roasting Brussel sprouts along with zucchini instead of peaches. Used store bought pesto our of laziness. Enjoyed the balsamic on the tomatoes and definitely recommend keeping this step.

If you use a few shortcuts this is so so quick and easy! I spread out store-bought pesto over the naan, added mozzarella, diced tomatoes (from a can), and some diced zucchini. Put it into the oven for 5 minutes and it was perfect! Really a quick and easy meal for after work bc once you are done assembling the oven is already heated up and ready to go! Also very customizable.

Made this with homemade whole wheat pizza dough instead of naan — easy to adapt. Absolutely delicious!

We couldn't find Naan at our local store, but the pita worked and tasted great!

Used whole wheat pizza dough and made one large pizza as store was out of naan. Also, I used store bought pesto, and low moisture mozarella as that is what I had on hand. It turned out delicious. The kids picked off the tomatoes (as they always do), and the husband and I enjoyed as is. Repeat!
