This Hawaiian Naan Pizza makes a deliciously easy dinner that’s cheaper, faster, and healthier than delivery!
Hey, remember a couple of weeks ago in my Pasta Primavera post when I teased that a Naan Pizza recipe would be coming soon? Well, today is that day! Happy Naan Pizza Day!!! (Is that already a National Food Holiday? I would not be even a little bit surprised.)
Naan makes a perfect pizza crust. It’s not like making French bread pizza or a bagel pizza, where you are well aware of the fact that you are eating pizza on a piece of bread, naan just tastes like really good thin pizza crust, only without the work of making it (though if you want to make some go check out my Margherita Pizza post). Plus, it’s perfectly sized to make individual pizzas, and anytime I have the excuse to get my own pizza, I am pleased as punch.
I’m partial to Hawaiian Pizza, so that’s the type of naan pizza I made for today’s post. And when making homemade pizza, I always use my favorite homemade pizza sauce because it’s the best (I keep jars of it in the freezer just for such an occasion), but real talk, if you are reading this at 4:45 right before you leave work to go to the store and it’s been a long day, you can just pick up a jar of the premade stuff and your pizzas are still going to be delicious.
You’ll notice that the recipe’s approximately 3 sentences long. That’s because there’s not a lot to tell. Just slather sauce, sprinkle cheese, ham, and pineapple, and bake. In 12 to 15 minutes, you have a fabulous pizza dinner!
I made this pizza twice last week, once to photograph, and a second time two days later because I couldn’t stop thinking about it. And I’m maybe already wondering if it’s too soon to put it on next week’s menu…
What are your go-to pizza toppings? What type of naan pizza would you make?
Hawaiian Naan Pizza
This Hawaiian Naan Pizza makes a delicious easy dinner that's cheaper, faster, and healthier than delivery!
- 2 Naan loaves
- 3/4 cup pizza sauce homemade or store-bought
- 3/4 cup (3oz) shredded mozzarella
- 1 cup chopped pineapple*
- 1/2 cup (3oz) chopped Canadian bacon or ham
Preheat your oven to 400°F.
Assemble your pizzas, dividing the ingredients evenly between the naan.
Bake on a cookie sheet for 12 to 14 minutes, until edges of the naan are golden and crispy and cheese melted. Slice and enjoy!
*Canned pineapple chunks work great, but you will probably want to cut them into smaller pieces.
