Fast Italian Flatbread Pizza

Instead of making that great pizza crust from scratch, why not use some store bought (there I said it) garlic flavored Naan.  I found it was worth the time saved and delicious.  Choose your toppings well!

For this creation I caramelized some onions in olive oil and a bit of chicken broth.  That was the hardest part!   Spread a bit of tomato sauce or your favorite pesto, then just begin to layer on your toppings.   I went with sliced Roma tomatoes, dried basil, minced garlic,  a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, those precooked onions,  handfuls of fresh spinach and a lower fat choice of goat cheese crumbles.  Pop them in the oven (400 degrees for about 10-12 minutes) or on the grill and you have an easy dinner!

Of course, nothing takes the place of a rustic homemade pizza crust but this is pizza in a crunch!
