i love naan. you know, the flat bread from india which comes in a variety of preparations such as tandoori, garlic, cheese, etc.
tonight i made one of the easiest to prepare pizzas in my wing it arsenal. all the ingredients are from trader joes.
two slices of garlic naan
minced garlic for more of that garlicky goodness
two roma tomatoes, sliced thin, but not paper thin and seeds removed
italian four cheese combination, shredded
fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
salt and pepper
spread garlic onto slice of naan. lay the slices of tomato onto the naan. sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. add the shredded basil leaves. apply as much or as little shredded cheese over the tomato basil fixins on the naan as you desire.
toast in toaster oven for 4:30 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and browning. i use the toast setting rather than a bake setting in order to have both burners hot. remove from oven taking care not to touch the top of said oven which will burn your fingers.
cut naan into quarters.
enjoy with a glass of merlot or cabernet sauvignon.
if you are really lazy just buy the pre-made pizzas in the deli case at trader joes. they are pretty damn good too.
however, i kinda like the idea of cutting basil leaves off the basil plant i bought and have been nurturing for nearly a month, as well as fresh tomatoes. of course if you have other toppings on hand, what the hell, mix it up. things like pickled artichoke hearts, mushrooms, pineapple, asparagus, etc.
i just like the fact these are nice personal size pizzas. if starved i make two. if not so hungry i make one.
