Indian Naan Pizza with Peas and Bell Peppers
with romaine salad

Active: 40 Total: 40

The Cook Smarts team tried Indian Pizza at our last in-person team retreat (back in 2019) and it inspired us to add this totally unique pizza to a meal plan in 2020. We're bringing it back this week. Using leftover Indian-spiced sauce from earlier in the week and naan as the base, these pizzas come together super fast.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 400F / 204C.

  2. Brush a sheet pan with some oil. (Use two sheet pans if all of the naan won’t fit without overlapping.)

  3. Place naan in a single layer on prepared sheet pan and bake for 5 minutes to crisp up (this will help keep them from getting soggy from the toppings).

  4. Spread Indian Butter Curry Sauce over top of naan. Top with bell peppers, cheese, and peas.

  5. Bake until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted and bubbly, 8 to 12 minutes.

  6. When pizza is nearly finished, toss lettuce in vinaigrette.

  7. Tear off cilantro leaves and scatter them over the pizza. Slice pizza and serve with salad on the side. Enjoy!

This was very good and easy given we made the sauce early in the week. I had unpeeled shrimp in the freezer so had the extra step of peeling… unfortunately, the butter chicken was not as well liked, for which, we first made the sauce…definitely omitted red pepper flakes so kids would eat it.

Quick and easy with the prep done. We liked it. I added a few cut up meatballs we had left over. Used spinach for the salad. Loved the vinaigrette.
