Tex Mex Naan Pizza
with Mexican side salad

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.

Tasty quick meal. We used pitas and they got nice and crispy.

We liked this but we doctored the refried beans quite a bit. Mixed in half a can of enchilada sauce, some taco seasoning, and a whole chopped jalapeno. We crisped up the naan before putting on toppings. After cooking, we added lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and salsa. I like the idea, maybe refried black beans or whole beans might be better.

The best deconstructed pizza/salad bowl option for our family. We added red enchilada sauce and limes in addition to a variety of salsas, hot sauces, and the other toppings, and just baked cheese on the naan so everyone could make their own. A definite crowd pleaser.

Skipped the salad and was able to make the pizzas in 5 min + bake, which was a huge win to me. The tacos were ok, but needed some spice, maybe cilantro or taco meat.

It was good but for the same amount of work I'd rather just make tacos

This was a fun and tasty meal, and so quick to put together. I left off the olives because they aren’t my favorite but otherwise made this as written. I thought all the flavors were great and I’ll definitely make this again when I need something quick.
