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.

    I’ve been doing this for years … but using the garlic naan.. Publix pizza sauce and all kinds of toppings. My fave is the margherita pizza my boyfriend loves hamburger,onion and bacon. But I always have all kinds available. When I couldn’t find garlic naan, I just made minced garlic butter melted and brushed it on first! Great idea, great pizza!

    My husband would seriously eat this every night if I made it for him. I’m allergic to tomatoes and use a homemade garlic-pesto sauce for my pizza and use the suggestion to precook the bread 4 minutes prior to loading the toppings on. We haven’t used any other recipe since finding this one with the exception of the occasional homemade Detroit style pizza we make.

    Love this. It’s healthier than ordering in, and faster as well. If you like garlic, like we do, you can crush a clove of garlic and mush it around in the sauce with a spoon as you are putting the sauce on the naan. If I have fresh basil I put it on top just before serving. We like a mix of mozzarella and some parmesan. We like fresh tomatoes, ham, and peppers on top.

    I found the small naan breads at Walmart.They are perfect for kids. I am watching my granddaughters tomorrow and thought about how fun it would be to let them make their own little pizza for lunch. Your recipe is so simple that my 12 and 7 year old granddaughters will have no problem making their own pizza. Thank You, cannot wait to make fun memories with them. 😁

  • Inaaya says:

    OMG this is delicious!! I’m only a tween & don’t know how to cook, but these are really easy to make! I never considered using naan to make pizza, & usually get pizza from a store. This is WAY healthier & I love how I can add my own toppings! Thank you so much for this!

    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.
