"I often cook for members of Siggi’s family (a mixed group of vegetarians & carnivores), so I’m happy when I’m able to serve them something tasty that will please both dietary persuasions. I’m also esp fond of recipes that can be easily made ahead & then served fresh-from-the-oven as a generous vegetarian meal or as an appetizer for 6. These vegetarian pizzas can also be served as “Build Your Own” buffet fare. Several of the ingredients are convenience items & ample time has been allowed to prepare them & assemble the pizzas. ENJOY!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400F. In a bowl, combine both cheeses using your fingers to mix them gently so the mixture can be easily applied to the Naan bread. Set aside.

Step 2

Spread a thin layer of basil pesto on both pieces of naan bread. Then sprinkle the cheese mixture over them so it is evenly applied to both pieces.

Step 3

Now layer the rest of the topping ingredients in this order to both pieces of Naan bread: Spinach leaves, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, poblano peppers & onions (It’s best to put the veggies on in this order so the ones that need the most cooking are on top).

Step 4

Lightly sprinkle both pizzas w/the Italian seasoning blend, garlic salt & black pepper to taste. Bake for 10-12 min.

Step 5

Remove from oven & serve as 2, 4 or 6 portions = Your choice to make based on appetites being served or meal course you’ve chosen. Serve w/optional avocado & tomato slices, drizzled w/lemon juice & seasoned w/salt & pepper to taste.

Easily worth double the stars! I didn't use as much of the ingredients as stated. In fact, only used about half the amount of everything. I 'd say there is a total of 4 oz. mozzarella and I didn't even bother with the cheddar. I'm including photos of the pre-cooked naan, right out of the oven and cut up on the plate to illustrate how hugely generous the toppings are. And they were delicious!!! And of course, in Twissis-land there are avocados! I loved that extra flavor and texture.

Great idea for quick pizza! I had no gluten free naan but kind of a kitchen accident, a gluten free flatbread that didn't work but which I didn't want to throw away, so I used it as the base for this recipe, and it turned out great. Had no poblano peppers, so used pepperoncini, but otherwise followed the recipe. We absolutely loved the taste! Thanks for sharing this great idea! Made for RSC game 2018
