Cook's Hideout: Masala Naan Pizza

December 03, 2009

Masala Naan Pizza

I usually keep store-bought naans for impromptu guests and lazy weeknight dinners. All I need to make is a curry and dinner is served. But these naans are also great as pizza bases and also to make paninis. So with the masala naans I had on hand, I made these pizzas, very quick and filling.

Naans – 2
Pizza sauce – ¼ cup, homemade or store- bought, I used Bertolli Tomato-Basil pasta sauce
For the topping:
Onion – 2 tbsp chopped
Peppers – ¼ cup chopped
Frozen chopped Spinach – ¼ cup thawed
Mozzarella cheese & Feta Cheese

  • Toppings can be placed raw and baked for a crunchy pizza or can be sautéed in 2tsp oil till cooked through and then baked on the pizza. I did the latter, I sautéed all my toppings with 1 minced garlic clove.
  • To make the pizza: Place naans on a foil lined baking pan; spread the tomato sauce; add the toppings and mozzarella cheese & feta cheese. Bake in a 400°F oven for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted. I made another pizza with just the tomato sauce, mozzarella & feta cheeses.



  1. Long back I made panini which is called nanini here :) Pizza base never thought, quick fix dinner!

  2. I use them to make pizzas too, the Indian way and find them better than the store bought Pizza base.
