Cheese and bread make the cheeks red.
~ German Proverb
This is Suanne’s invention — a good one I must say. Suanne always had a problem making thin crust pizza, you know, the type that is crispy and crunchy. Until today she has not managed to get the dough just right. So, she substituted the dough with Naan bread. Here is what her Naan Pizza looks like:
The beauty of this pizza is that it’s very fast to make and it taste just great-n-crispy. Most important of all, there are no dishes to wash. This takes only 20 minutes to make. Suanne makes this for breakfast every now and then. You may want to consider making this for lunch with more toppings like pepperoni, roasted chicken, etc.
To make this you need the following five items: Naan bread, pizza sauce, shredded mozarella cheese, parmesan cheese and some herbs. We buy all these from the Real Canadian Superstore and does not cost much.
The Naan bread costs about $3.59 for a pack of 12 pieces. For the herbs, we use Mrs Dash for flavouring. We like Mrs Dash and used that with eggs, spaghetti, etc. It’s healthier than using seasoning salt in our opinion. We estimated that it will costs about $1.25 to make each piece. The most expensive ingredient is the mozzarella (about 2/3 of the total costs).
The steps are very simple. First you spread the pizza sauce on the naan bread. You then sprinkle the herbs and parmesan cheese over the sauce. Lastly, layer a generous helping of shredded mozzarella cheese and you’re set for the oven. You need to pre-heat the oven to 400C. The pizza is baked for 10 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.
You absolutely must try to make it at home. Chances are the folks at home will love it. It smells great, and is very crispy. One tip: this might trigger the smoke alarm as it did this morning at our home! So, make sure the kitchen is ventilated well.
It’s best served with coffee!
