Naan Bread Margherita Pizza with Prosciutto

We all have our guilty pleasures in life. Guilty pleasures are things that are not good for you but you just can’t help but love them and usually feel a little guilty after eating them. I have a few guilty pleasures like Reality shows , Chocolate , French fries and Pizza. I have yet to meet somebody who doesn’t love a good slice of pizza. Seriously if you are not a big fan of Pizza I would love to hear from you.
Today I am dedicating this post to Pizza because I made one the other day and it was so good that I had to share it with you. Instead of making the pizza dough from scratch I decided to use Naan bread for the pizza base. Using Naan bread not only saved me time but it was great for portion control, Lord knows how many slices I would have eaten if a whole pizza was in front of me. This is a very simple dish to make and if you don’t know where to get Naan bread, Trader Joe’s carries frozen Naan bread for less that 3 dollars.The only difference between this recipe and most pizza recipes is that I did not put a tomato sauce on the base of the pizza. I don’t like the sogginess that comes from the sauce, but feel free to try it with the sauce as it will still yield good results.

Ingredients
2 pieces Naan bread
8 slices mozzarella cheese
1 large Roma tomato thinly sliced
1 clove garlic finely chopped (2 if you like it garlicky)
6-8 basil leaves roughly chopped
1 strip prosciutto sliced
1 green onion sliced
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

Directions 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Meanwhile place Naan bread in a foil lined baking tray brush top of bread with olive oil.
  • Start by placing garlic and onion on the bread and make sure it is spread out all over the bread.Follow with mozzarella cheese, about 4 slices per pizza then tomatoes, basil and prosciutto. Add a little of salt and pepper over tomatoes.
  • sprinkle 1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese on each pizza.

  • Bake for about 10 minutes or until pizza crust  is a little crispy. I like to put the oven on broil for the last 2 minutes for extra crispiness.
  • Serve with a chicken salad or just the pizza alone. Either way you will be left wondering why you have been spending all that money on take away pizza.

Yummy!
