This is one of my favorite friday night dishes. This pizza is quick, simple and delicious. Instead of making the pizza dough from scratch I decided to use naan bread for the pizza base. Using naan bread not only saves time but it is great for portion control. The only difference between this recipe and most pizza recipes is that It doesn't include a tomato sauce on the base. I don't like the sogginess that comes from the sauce, but feel free to try it with the sauce as it will still yield good results.

  • Place naan breads on the prepared baking sheet; brush each naan with olive oil. Spread green onion and garlic over each naan. Arrange 4 slices mozzarella cheese onto each naan; top with tomato slices. Season tomatoes with salt and pepper. Top tomato layers with prosciutto, basil, and Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until pizza is crispy on the edges and cheese is melted, about 8 minutes. Turn on oven's broiler and broil until cheese is lightly browned and bubbling, about 2 minutes.

I make this at least once a week! I use fresh basil and tomatoes out of my Garden. It is excellent with either fresh mozzarella, low moisture- part skim or whole milk! It is great on the grill. I heat my oven to 450° then when I put my pizza in the oven, I switch it to broil because I like my cheese to brown. Read More

In the oven in literally a couple of minutes and very good given how easy it is. If you don't have prosciutto use a little bacon or ham or whatever you have in the fridge. My sons liked this a lot and I liked just having the sliced tomato instead of a pizza covered in sauce. Read More

A delicious and quick pizza! I made it with the mini Naans and only made 4 which was a bummer because me and my mom could have earn 3 each! A great quick lunch that taste like it took longer than 10mins to make! Read More

Very easy. I used what I had: I brushed the naan with coconut oil then toasted the garlic on top in the broiler topped with medium cheddar slices sliced cherry tomatoes grilled brown onion ham dried basil and black pepper. It was a big hit. Read More

Good recipe! If you brush the bread with olive oil and add minced garlic and bake for 8 minutes and then proceed with the rest of the steps you can add sauce without it getting soggy- we did a sundried tomato pesto and crushed tomatoes as the base and it was great! Read More

This was wonderful! We have also made this using pesto as a "sauce" with grilled chicken artichoke hearts sundried tomatoes fresh basil and mozzarella...The oven takes longer to preheat than this does to make...so many options...We like naan bread for pizza because of the portion control and everyone can pick/choose what they want...Thanks for sharing this!!

I made it tonight and it was very good. My grocery store doesn't carry prosciutto so I used Black Forest ham from their deli counter. Its a bit less salty than Prosciutto so I think a few olives would have balanced it out. Next time... Read More

Easy and delicious! My husband said the prosciutto smelled like road kill and refused to eat any on his pizza:( Next time I'll just use bacon. It's cheaper anyway. Read More
