Quick Margherita Pizza

Naan bread takes the place of pizza dough, speeding up the baking time. It's perfect for busy weeknights.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided

  • 2 tsp chopped garlic

  • 2 cups canned whole Italian tomatoes, with juices

  • 4 naan

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella

  • 1/4 tsp basil leaf


  • Preheat oven to 400F.

  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pot over me­­di­­um. Add garlic and sauté for 30 sec or until fragrant. With a clean pair of kitchen scissors, cut whole tomatoes inside the can, then add to pot with juices. Add a pinch of sugar and gently simmer on medium-low for 15 min or until thick. Season with salt.

  • Brush remaining 1 tbsp oil onto baking sheet. Place naan on sheet. Top each with a dollop of sauce and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Bake 20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with basil.
