Grilled Tomato and Mozzarella Naan Pizza

Naan Bread. Pesto. Tomatoes. Fresh Mozzarella Cheese. A Grill.

One fantastic meal!

I got the inspiration for this dish from my sister-in-law, Aggie, who made these Grilled Veggie Naan Pizzas with Pesto Sauce.

I made mine with fresh mozzarella, tomato slices and pesto.  We loved the slightly charred and crunchy crust that you get when grilling the Naan Bread.  An easy weeknight meal or cut into pieces for an appetizer.  

Give these "different" pizzas a try.....I know you will enjoy them!

Grilled Tomato and Mozzarella Naan Pizza
Recipe adapted from Aggie's Kitchen   


4 Naan Flatbreads (found in deli section or speciality breads)
8 tablespoons pesto, homemade or store bought (I used Classico brand)
2 large tomatoes, sliced
Fresh Mozzarella, sliced (from deli or speciality cheese section)
olive oil


Preheat grill to medium heat.  Brush one side of Naan Bread with olive oil.  Place side with olive oil down on grill rack.  Grill for a few minutes until bread starts to get light grill marks and is slightly crisp.  Take off grill, place on baking sheet(s) and set aside.

Spread 2 tablespoons pesto on each of the non-grilled sides of the bread.  Top with mozzarella cheese and tomato slices.  Close grill and cook for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. 

Remove from grill and cut into slices.  


Mom's Cooking Club Lesson: Personalize these individual pizzas with your favorite toppings.  Mushrooms, Bell Peppers and Pepperoni are some other 
   toppings I want to try.  If you're not a fan of pesto, use some tomato or pizza sauce.

Those look really good. And simple, too. A fun alternative to make-you-own pizza.
