Naan Pizza

I made what I would like to think of as a healthy pizza this past weekend. Healthy by my standards basically means homemade. So, it could quite possibly been worse than the disgusting $5 hot-n-ready's Little Caesar makes that actually aren't even $5 any more, just like many things on the $1 menu are deceptively creeping up in price.

So, healthy pizza. I bought Naan bread...its these little round flatbreads you could probably use for anything but they scream pizza to me. (why else would you make ROUND bread? duh)
Italian sausage, mozarella cheese, and marinara sauce, viola.

looks like ground beef!

The italian sausage comes in links, so you could either slice them really thin, or chop them up like ground beef (or ground turkey, I know some people love that). I lightly covered the Naan bread with olive oil before I topped it only because my favorite pizza place offers garlic and olive oil as a base for cooking and its sooooooo delicious. So, it probably made no difference at all to my pizza, but I like to pretend it did. Next we layered on the sauce...and might I suggest being picky with your marina. Whatever we got was runny and not very pizza-ey. Next time I'm going to try Newmans (you can never go wrong there). topped with mozarella, meat, more sauce, and thinly sliced tomatoes. Oven for 15 minutes at 400 degrees, and done.

It tasted fantastic despite looking a little scary. It didn't really come out in perfect little triangle slices. But never judge a book by its cover!!!


  1. Do you know what's really funny about this? I was looking up weight watchers recipes the other day and found a recipe for a healthy pizza a LOT like this one!! :):) I thought it was a great idea then... and now. :) I liked the shout out for ground turkey.. yum. I think it would be divine with mozzarella, pizza sauce and an overload of grilled veggies... even healthier!! :) :) :)
