Every week, we have made it a tradition to make homemade pizzas (well, I don't make the dough homemade--I either buy Whole Foods whole wheat ready-made dough or store-bought Naan flatbread). We recently tried to make it more "gourmet" by doing it on the grill! Super easy and quick!
Easy Grilled Flatread Pizzas
Salt & Pepper
1 pkg (of 2), store-bougth Naan flatbread (we used wheat)
Store-bought basil pesto (we used Classico brand)
1-2 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
Any summer veggies of choice: We used yellow squash, zucchini, onion, and eggplant, and red bell pepper
1 cup finely shredded mozerella cheese
Heat grill. Brush olive oil over sliced veggies of choice and sprinkle to your liking salt and pepper (for added "kick" add a few dashes of crushed red pepper flakes). Grill veggies (about 5-7 minutes on each side) until tender and cooked. Remove from grill and chop into smaller, bite size pieces.
In a bowl, mix together 1-2 cups of ricotta with 2-3 tbsp. basil pesto. Mix together thoroughly until a smooth paste.
Heat up Naan flatbreads on grill (about 1-2 min. each side). Remove from grill.
Assemble pizzas. Smear ricotta/pesto base generously on Naan. Scatter various chopped grilled veggies over base. Finish by sprinkling top of pizzas with mozerella cheese. Optional: Place back on grill (lid closed) for about 1 minute (until mozerella is melted). Remove and serve!!
You can easily add grilled meat of choice to these pizzas. I haven't served with any sides as they are filling (each Naan is like a "personal size pizza"). Enjoy!
Some are our own, while some are variations or spins on other recipes. Then again, some are straight up ripped off from somewhere, but we'll do our best to give credit where credit is due!
