Easy Techniques to Add Flavor
Enhance the flavor of your pizza by raiding your spice cabinet, incorporating fresh herbs, or experimenting with different cheeses!
Let’s begin with cheese. As mozzarella tends to be mild, consider sprinkling freshly grated parmesan on top before baking. It contributes a salty, nutty essence and melts to perfection.
Once your pizza is done, it’s time to delve into your spice cabinet or utilize any fresh herbs you have on hand. Freshly chopped basil or oregano are fantastic choices, or you can opt for dried oregano to infuse that herby goodness. Don’t forget the red pepper flakes for a delightful spicy kick! These straightforward ingredients truly elevate the flavor.
- 4 naan bread pieces
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded/sliced
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese *optional
- 2 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Add Sauce and Cheese: Begin by spreading the pizza sauce evenly over the naan bread. Following that, sprinkle a generous amount of shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce. If you have parmesan cheese on hand, feel free to add some for an extra layer of flavor.
- Bake Pizzas: Place the prepared pizzas on the oven rack and bake for approximately 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on them, and they should be ready when the crust turns golden brown and the cheese is beautifully melted.
- Slice and Serve: Once out of the oven, slice your naan pizzas and serve them up. Top with fresh basil leaves, a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, dried oregano, and red pepper flakes if you want a bit of heat. Enjoy your quick and delicious homemade pizzas!
Here’s a tip to make your naan pizza crust even crispier: pre-bake your naan bread. Follow these steps:
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- Place the naan bread directly on the oven rack and bake for 3-4 minutes. This quick pre-bake will start to crisp up the crust.
- Carefully remove the naan from the oven and add your pizza sauce, cheese, and any extra toppings you desire.
- Place the topped naan back in the oven for another 3-4 minutes or until the cheese has fully melted and the edges are golden brown.
This extra step will give your pizza more texture and a less doughy taste. Enjoy your naan pizza!
If you’re looking to make your pizza a bit healthier, consider swapping regular naan bread for whole wheat naan if it’s available at your local grocery store.
As for pizza sauce choices, you have options! You can use a classic pizza sauce, marinara sauce, or try fire-roasted crushed tomatoes for an easy and fresh flavor. It’s all about personal preference, so feel free to experiment and find your favorite combination.
