Thinking of ordering Papa John's or throwing in a frozen DiGiornio tonight? Give this healthier naan version a try instead! You can make your own pizza with fresh ingredients. Plus, these are very easy to customize, so everyone can have the toppings they personally prefer! Start with a piece of naan* per person and go from there!
*You can usually find these in the bakery section of the grocery store. I like garlic naan.
What you'll need:
- 1 piece naan per person/pizza
- 1/4 cup spaghetti sauce (or pesto) per pizza
- 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese per pizza
- chopped bell pepper
- sliced fresh mushrooms
- arugula or spinach leaves
- sliced black olives
- ground turkey
- onion and garlic
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- seasonings of your choice
Other toppings options:
-sliced turkey sausage
Possibilities are endless! Get creative!
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Wash, chop and slice your veggies and set out your cheese.
Step 2: Heat the olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add sliced onion and minced garlic and stir, cooking for a few minutes until the onion is clear.
Step 3: Add a package of ground turkey to the skillet, breaking up the meat into small bits. Season with salt, pepper and red garlic flakes if you want a little spice. If you don't have garlic on hand, season the meat with garlic powder now. Stir occasionally.
Step 4: Once the turkey is completely cooked, with no pink left, turn the heat down to low & add 1-2 cups spaghetti sauce & mix together. Heat until sauce is warm while you build your pizzas.
Step 5: Place the pieces of naan on cookie sheets. Using a kitchen brush or spatula, spread sauce liberally on each pizza. Sprinkle cheese and layer your topping. Bake your pizza for about 15 minutes-- a few minutes longer if you want a little more crunch. Let sit for a minute to set and enjoy with a salad like this one:
