This is a go to on busy nights; it's just another take on the English muffin or bagel personal pizza. Garlic naan cooks super-fast and makes a fabulous pizza crust. If no naan is available, you can also use pre-made pizza crusts.

Ingredients

1. Garlic naan (or Regular - or any other version of naan that you enjoy) or pre-made pizza crust/flatbread,

  • Market Pantry Pizza Crust (Target) - Target was rated as a best company for women to work for by FairyGodboss.com and a Best Company for Women by Diversity Woman magazine.
  • Marketside Naan (Walmart) - Walmart was rated as one of the Best Companies for Working Multicultural Women by Working Mother magazine and a Best Company for Women by Diversity Woman magazine.

and ... go!

When we decided to try this recipe, the kids and I were already at Target, and I didn't feel like going to a separate store, so we got all of our ingredients there. Market Pantry pizza crust and Simply Balanced pizza sauce here (we got two pizzas out of one jar - and there was a little left over).

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400°F

Take your base-bread and spread on the jar pizza sauce with a spoon. Then let the kids choose whatever topping they want that you have on hand. It's another great way to get them to eat veggies as they can pick the ones they want. Sometimes I have pepperoni on hand sometimes I have leftover ham or chicken. That's all fair game as topping as well. Once they choose their toppings sprinkle on some bag Mozzarella or Parmesan and place the pizzas directly on the oven rack of a preheated oven for 5-10 minutes depending on your naan or pre-made pizza crust being frozen or thawed or fresh.

Suggestion: served with sliced apple or grapes and you're ready to roll!

it was a tie

we chose to put olives and pepperoni on our pizzas - the kids wanted me to judge whose was best, but they were equally good (of course).
