Naan Margherita Pizza

My poor, handsome fiance hurt his ankle Wednesday night at his softball game :(  Because of this, he called off work on Thursday to keep weight off of it and since it was my day off too, that meant that he was going to have a servant for the day!  I took care of him and headed to the gym, followed by the grocery store.  In typical Mike fashion, he didn't know what he wanted for lunch.  I decided for him!  I wanted something easy but tasty, and figured mini pizzas would be good!  This is my version of Margherita pizza, I know it is different whereever you go, but try just might like it! 

What You Need:
  • naan bread (I used garlic)
  • pizza sauce
  • 1 block of mozzarella
  • 12 basil leaves (give or take)

Use one naan bread per person.  Since there were two of us, I put two pieces of naan bread onto a greased cookie sheet.

Topped with a thin layer of pizza sauce.  I put a little extra on my naan because I like it saucy!  A little note:  surprisingly the Ragu pizza sauce was pretty good and only 99 cents for the jar!

Slice the mozzarella into 1/4 inch slices (thereabouts).  None of my slices were the same, don't stress, no one is judging you!

Back in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and slightly browned.

While the yummy naan pizza bakes, chop your basil.  An easy trick is to collect all the leaves, roll it into a cigar shape and then run your knife through it.

You'll get beautiful little slivers.  Perfect for your pizza!  Also, a lot easier then cutting one leaf at a time too!  (BTW the basil if from our porch garden)

When the pizza is done in the oven, sprinkle the basil on top.

So simple, but so good!

Cut with a sharp knife or a pizza roller. 

I cut them into quarters.  It looks like a funny football...

Serve with your favorite pizza toppings!  I am a garlic salt and crushed red pepper type of gal.  Mike is crushed red pepper and Parmesan cheese type of guy.  Put whatever sparks your fire.

Mike (and his bum ankle) really enjoyed this.  I liked the simplicity and the few ingredients of it!
