Say hello to the quickest pizza recipe ever! All you need is 5 ingredients, 8 minutes to bake, and you have the crispiest, golden mini pizzas that are SO yummy and EASY.

When Drew and I first got married I made naan pizzas ALL the time for us. It was so easy for me whip these pizzas up and serve them alongside a salad or our favorite soup! I’ve made these pizzas for countless family dinners and parties. They are ALWAYS a hit and I never have any leftovers!

So whether you are making pizza for your family, a party, or any occasion, this recipe is your new best friend. They’re quick, tasty, and require minimal ingredients! 

Ingredients You Need

You’ll need only handful of ingredients to make this recipe happen: naan, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese (optional but great for flavor!), pizza sauce, and fresh chopped basil

How to Make 10-Minute Naan Pizza

#1 Sauce – use a homemade pizza sauce recipe or your favorite store bought.

#2 Add your toppings – Sprinkle shredded or sliced mozzarella and a little parmesan cheese. You can also use your favorite Italian cheese blend.

Simple Ways to Add Flavor

Add even more flavor to your pizza by utilizing your spice cabinet, using fresh herbs, or adding more cheeses!

First, let’s start with the cheese. Since mozzarella doesn’t have the most flavor, we love adding freshly grated parmesan over top before baking! It adds a salty, nutty flavor and melts beautifully.

When the pizza is finished, we hit the spice cabinet or use up our fresh herbs on hand. We love adding fresh chopped basil or oregano, or using dried oregano for an herb flavor. Another must is red pepper flakes for a little spicy kick!

These ingredients are so simple yet really pack on the flavor.

More Pizza Toppings 

Who doesn’t love pizza toppings?! And since these pizza’s are so small, you can easily personalize them to make things fun and even more delicious. 

Our favorite toppings are: roasted vegetables, sliced olives, pepperoni, cooked meatballs, and cooked Italian sausage

Tip if using vegetable toppings: I don’t recommend adding raw vegetable to these pizzas because they cook quickly in the oven and won’t allow the veggies enough time to soften. Pre-cook vegetables either in a pan or roast them before adding to your pizzas.

Extra Recipe Notes

  • Crispy crust tip: Make your crust even better by pre-baking your naan. Bake for 3-4 minutes in the oven, carefully remove — add sauce, cheese, extra toppings, and bake for 3-4 more minutes or until cheese has melted. This will give your pizza more texture and a less doughy taste!
  • Make it healthier: Swap regular naan bread for whole wheat (if available at your local grocery store).
  • Pizza sauce choices: you can use a regular pizza sauce, marinara, or use fire roasted crushed tomatoes for an easy and fresh flavor! 

Pair it with a soup!

Whenever serving up personalized pizzas, I love pairing them with a hearty vegetable soup! Such as our Healthy Tomato Basil Soup, Tuscan White Bean Soup, or this hearty Italian Minestrone Soup.

    I make naan garlic pizzas once a month for me and my husband. It’s more like ‘homemade’ and I can add whatever toppings we like. And so feel like we’re eating healthier, too, which is important because my husband has a serious heart condition.

    For naan pizzas it’s always turns out great if you brush olive oil on the edges. your crust comes out way better. A little tip I gained from working at a college deli/pizza shop.

    The naan bread pizzas looked so good, I had to try one right away. The recipe was super easy to follow and they taste as good as they look.

    Pre-baking the naan makes all the difference. My family loves how quick and easy the pizzas cook. We make ours without the pizza sauce or marinara – just cheese and toppings.

    I happened to have a couple bigger (‘toaster size’) naan from Stonefire, as well as some left-over mozzarella and saw your recipe. I use my top oven (electric, grr) the most because it’s small (only one rack) so uses less energy when cooking for us. (‘Us’ being my husband and I.) Because of this I’m very hesitant to cook anything on the rack, because below it are heating elements. Instead, I chucked a baking pan covered with tin foil into the oven to preheat with it, put the pre-made pizzas on the preheated pan, cooked for right around nine minutes, and they were perfect. The only reason the time went over was because I got distracted briefly before taking them out.
    I will never buy a pre-made frozen pizza ever again. Ever. Two of these plus a salad (more vegetables!) are perfect for one person, as well as delicious! The naan was perfect, still tender under all of the sauce and cheese, with a slightly crispy chewy aspect that was not unlike fresh pizza. Five stars for ease, flavor, and ability to change toppings as often as you wish.
    Thank you!

    Amazing! I am Italian and I live in Rome, do you know the secret to a good pizza? It is important to use good quality olive oil and add a little sugar to the flour so that the dough is tastier and with a better body. Also, it is essential not to mix the salt directly with the yeast because that affects the levitation. These and many more secrets are in this very useful Master Class https://eb4.co/0b1f5686 for beginners and experts, I share it with you!

    I love using hummus instead of tomato sauce on my naan pizzas. Delicious…gives a creamy taste, kind of like a Alfredo taste. Healthier too.
