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!
