The whole family loves naan pizza bread nights! We’re taking a big shortcut (no need to make crust!) with naan pizza crust, then all you need to do is bake them for a few minutes, top them with whatever pizza toppings you like, and bake them for another few minutes. That’s it! Serve mini naan pizzas with a simple green salad or my 5-minute chickpea chopped salad or chopped Italian salad for a full meal. Let everyone top their own naan pizzas for a customizable dinner, it’s a great way to get young (and old!) kids involved.

So just how easy are these easy naan pizzas? Bake, top, bake. And dinner is done in 10 minutes. Using naan bread for pizza crusts is a great use for them, because they just simplify the pizza-making process! They don’t need to be baked for a long time before topping and they are the perfect consistency.

Why Customizable Meals are so Great

I love having meals that are customizable, because it just allows everyone to create their own personal meal and I think this is beneficial for a few reasons:

  • It allows for creativity in the kitchen. This is an important skill to learn, and topping pizza is a fun and delicious way to learn it. Try out different topping combinations, sauces, cheeses, veggies, etc.
  • No separate meals. You know I believe in one family meal, but this is a great way to accommodate kids or family members who may not love every food (YET!). (If you want to read more about my philosophies when it comes to feeding kids, click here!)
  • It gets everyone involved in meal time. Ultimately, we want to empower our families to cook, and to be involved in the meals that come across the table. This skill comes from experimenting and creating in the kitchen. (And don’t forget, everyone has kitchen fails!)

Naan Pizza Bread FAQs

Can you make vegetarian naan pizza?

Yes, you can make vegetarian naan pizza by topping with vegetarian-friendly toppings. It’s also why I like to put out a variety of toppings – everyone can make the pizzas to their preference.

Can you make vegan naan pizza?

Many naan bread varieties are made with buttermilk and ghee, which would be vegetarian, but not vegan. Check the packages though, some versions aren’t made in the traditional way and don’t contain dairy.

How to Store Leftover Mini Naan Pizzas

Store leftover pizzas in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Reheat in a 375 degrees F oven for best results. Microwaving will result in a mushy naan pizza!
