Tonight's pizza is a fusion of two classic comfort foods. Topped with seasoned beef, cheddar cheese, and burger garnishes, it's a meal that both pizza and burger lovers will enjoy. Naan makes an easy base for pizza toppings, but feel free to use your favorite pizza crust or flatbread if you prefer.

  1. Heat oven to 425 F / 218 C degrees.

  2. Heat a saute pan with cooking oil (portion for pizza) over medium heat. Add beef to heated oil and saute until cooked through, breaking it up as it cooks. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. Arrange naan in a single layer on a sheet pan (use two pans if necessary). Spread sauce in an even layer over naan and top with half of the cheese.

  4. Top each pizza with ground beef, onions, pickles, and remaining cheese, taking care not to pile the toppings too high (too many toppings will result in soggy, undercooked pizza.)

  5. Bake the pizzas for 8 to 12 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbling.

  6. Remove pizzas from the oven and allow them to cool for a minute or two before slicing. Drizzle pizzas with some extra mustard if desired and top with lettuce and tomatoes.

  7. Serve pizza slices with baby carrots on the side. Enjoy!
