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 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.

    Bought the pack of 4 to try out for pizzas. Brushed them with garlic herb butter, in oven for 5 minutes then topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, basil and pepperoni, back in oven for 10-12 minutes @400. Our new way to make pizza!

    I love this! Tonight is another pizza night for me. This is a great way to use up my leftovers. I don’t have the usual pizza toppings at the moment so I’m improvising. Recently discovered that tuna and pineapple toppings are popular in Italy…so am making Hawaiian style Naan pizzas. Such a fun way to make my own healthy pizza and very cost effective. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    I’ve tried homemade alfredo sauce on these and its a hit! I brush the Naan with olive oil, do the pre-bake, then add alfredo and my toppings (artichoke hearts, spinach, diced red onion, and chicken). Delicious!

    Super quick recipe and easy to make! My hubby and I both enjoyed it.

  • Katrina says:

    Good recipe and a quick easy lunch for kiddo! But as an Indian, please please let’s stop saying naan bread. Naan is bread – it’s like saying “bread bread.”

    • Bethany Kramer says:

      Hi Katrina, so glad you enjoyed it! Funny you mention that, that was something I learned from a friend a few years ago and never got to check this post for errors with it. Thanks for the reminder!

      I use the pre-bake method after brusthing with butter, garlic pepper and onion powder. Then I top with a mix of arrabiata and pesto, whatever protein you prefer, olives, mushrooms, cheddar and mozzarella cheese.

      And FYI, the hindi word for bread is roti, as there are many variations of Indian breads
