Making pizza’s at home is easy especially when you use Naan Bread. I’ve been providing this recipe to my nutrition clients for years and it’s a good way to get your kids involved in preparing meals and building confidence in the kitchen. Depending on how old your little chef is, you may have to pre-cut the veggies and help measure any ingredients, just to be safe!
This recipe is vegetarian, but feel free to modify and use ingredients that you love using.
1 Naan Bread
3-4 Tbsp of Pizza Sauce
1/2 cup of shredded cheese (used Daiya mozzarella flavoured)
1/2 cup of fresh spinach leaves
1/4 cup diced bell pepper (any colour will do)
3 mushrooms cut in halves to a nice thickness
1/4 cup of diced tomato (remove any liquid portion to prevent pizza going soggy)
(Optional) Top up pizza with 1/4 cup of shredded cheese
1. Preheat oven to 375’F.
2. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet.
3. Add Naan Bread to the lined baking sheet.
4. Add pizza sauce and start layering. Start with 1/2 cup shredded cheese, spinach, bell pepper, mushrooms and tomatoes. (Optional to top up pizza with another layer of cheese. I do this to keep my pizza intact when having those first few bites) 😉
5. Place pizza in oven once 375’F has reached. Bake for 12 minutes until cheese is nicely melted and crust edges are lightly browned.
Serve with a cup of fruit or veggies to dip on the side. Enjoy!
