Active: 30 Total: 30
For these quick and easy pizzas with naan (or other flatbread) as the base, we've swapped out traditional pizza ingredients for all the toppings you usually find on tacos. Use refried beans and salsa instead of pizza sauce. We featured a version of this recipe in 2017 that used pizza dough instead of naan.

  • Lettuce, romaine - 4 oz , chopped
  • Tomatoes, roma - 2 , chopped
  • Vinegar, red or white wine - 1 Tbsp
  • Mustard, Dijon - 2 tsp
  • Honey - 1 tsp
  • Paprika, smoked - 1/4 tsp
  • Oil, olive - 2 Tbsp
