Spicy Naan Pizza

Spicy Naan Pizza

Who doesn't love pizza? Pizza is one of my favorite foods to eat. Thin or hand tossed crust, loads of fresh veggies, cheese, and pepperoni is all I need to make the perfect pie. Lets face it this yummy goodness that consist of bread, cheese, and toppings contains a large amount of carbs and calories that isn't always in line with our diet goals. So I eat it in moderation. While grocery shopping over the weekend I picked up some Naan and Boboli pizza crust along with Muir Glen pizza sauce.



In a pan, I sautéed spicy Italian sausage (Johnsville brand) until cooked through. While the sausage cooked I chopped up green peppers, red onion, Portobello mushrooms, and spinach. Once the sausage was cooked through I drained it on paper towels then placed it in the refrigerator for ten minutes to cool. Using a small saucepan add one can of pizza sauce, one teaspoon garlic powder and McCormick's Italian seasoning. Warm through and set aside. Lightly apply extra virgin olive oil to the top of each pizza. Be sure to spread evenly.  I sprinkled each one with McCormick's Italian season blend. Next, I added a spoonful of the Muir pizza sauce followed by Sargento off the block mozzarella cheese, toppings, and more cheese. I popped them in a 400-degree oven for ten minutes or until the crust is golden brown and cheese is nice and bubbly. Garnish with red crush peppers and bam you're done.


The boys were excited to be making their very own personal pan. They used the Boboli mini crust, which came two to a pack and is the perfect size for one person. The Naan flat bread is also sold two to a pack and the sizes of each piece will vary. Each piece is large enough for one person. You can find them near the deli or bread aisle of most grocery stores. 


I set up an assembly line of ingredients to make for easy assembling. 




The boy's were so anxious that they sat right in front of the oven until it was done.  


They were very proud of their finished product and couldn't wait to dig in. 



After they were done I set up for Hubby and I. I had whole grain naan while he enjoyed the regular naan.  I loaded both of them with all toppings minus spinach on his. 

Fresh out of the oven.







I'm already planning for my next Naan pizza as I type this. lol. I'm thinking pesto and chicken sounds good. Will you give this recipe a try?
