This grilled margherita naan pizza is so simple to make, and a definite crowd pleaser!
A few months ago my in-laws were in town for the week watching Little A. I always struggle with what to make for dinner while they’re here, but had been dying to try naan pizzas. They seem to be all the rage right now. And I now understand why.
Homemade pizza is so simple. Pizza is always a go to for us when we don’t know what to have for dinner. And with the pre-cooked naan crust it’s a quick and fun way to make dinner for 4 adults plus a toddler. Naan bread is some of my favorite type of bread. Give me all the curry and naan and I’m a happy girl!
Ya know how your taste buds change as you get older? Mine have done somewhat of a 180 over the last few years. Growing up you would never catch me eating margherita pizza. I mean pizza yes, but never anything with tomatoes. I do not like tomatoes at all. Still don’t. But for some reason on a margherita pizza I love them. Maybe it’s the balsamic glaze that makes me savor each bite, but I cannot seem to get enough. No matter what the hubby wants, as long as he gets a margherita pizza for me as well I’m a happy wifey.
Grilled Margherita Naan Pizza
- 2-3 pieces of naan bread
- 4 garlic cloves minced
- 2 tomatoes sliced
- 10 basil leaves chopped
- 3 tablespoons EVOO
- 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 6-9 slices of mozzarella cheese or 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
- Warm up your grill to 400 degrees F.
- In a small bowl, combine 1 1/2 tbsp EVOO with the balsamic vinegar. Set aside.
- In a separate small bowl, combine the remaining 1 1/2 tbsp EVOO with the garlic and spread on the naan bread.
- Cook bread on the grill for about 5 minutes, until crust starts to brown a bit. You're just trying to crisp it up a little.
- Remove from grill, then layer cheese and tomato on top.
- Place back on grill until cheese is melted, about 7-10 minutes.
- Remove from grill, drizzle with balsamic vinegar mixture and top with chopped basil.
I wish naan didn’t have so many calories because I could eat a margherita naan pizza daily. It is delicious.
Have a great day love bugs!
YUM. I could totally eat this for breakfast RIGHT now. It looks pregnant-Paige friendly, haha! And oh man, I don’t know what cooler temps are. It’s still 100 here. I absolutely can’t wait to instruct Kirk to pull down our fall/Halloween decorations! I’m thinking the second week in Sept. And this week totally counts as the first 🙂
This looks sooo good!
I’ll be making this ASAP!! I love naan bread pizza! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston
We get naan bread at Trader Joe’s. I prefer eating it as my sandwich bread. It is great with egg salad, chicken salad, etc. Adding this to my dinner menu. Sound and looks delicious. Never thought of making pizza out of it. Great idea.
Oh egg salad. I love egg salad. Maybe I’ll make some today. Yum. Ha! Now I’m off on a tangent.
I’m so glad you liked the pizza. I’ve diced the tomatoes before as well and it works good too.
I still haven’t tried naan pizza yet but it always looks so delicious, and pizza is ALWAYS a good idea to me 🙂
Sounds delicious! Man, I can’t even fathom fall. It’s not been terribly hot here but still, I’m still enjoying pool time! Glad you had a good weekend!
Oooh, Tiffany, this looks and sounds so delicious. We don’t have a grill (I know, crazy, right) but I’m excited you included oven instructions as well.
Definitely pinning this to my Deliberate FOOD board.
Wishing you a lovely evening.
Hi ya Tiff’! I had a moment to check your blog today… this pizza looks so very good. I’m definitely going to make it asap. I enjoy all of your recipes 😉 xo
…and now I’m just craving pizza … at 8:30a 🙂 Worse things! This is one of my all time favorites and it sounds amazing. never thought of using naan – this is genius on a busy weeknight. Thank you for sharing 🙂
I NEED this. Yum. YUM.
Yum! The kids love helping me make pizza, I hadn’t thought of trying it with naan bread. Will definitely be giving this a go!
We are getting a CSA this year and they usually give us naan with our veggies. Super exciting! We have been doing naan pizza in the oven most weeks. I had not thought to try it on the grill. It looks amazing!! May need to try. 🙂
That’s awesome! Our CSAs don’t do that around here. I have to say the naan pizza is a definite fave of ours now for sure.
