Introduction

I beg you to keep the wherewithal for this fantastic instant snack-cum-supper in your storecupboard. It's a lifesaver! I've given my topping of preference; feel free to play about and make your own. All I feel strongly is that while shop-bought pizzas are vile, packet naans, when heated, are not.

Ingredients

Serves: 1

Metric Cups
  • 1 shop-bought naan bread
  • 2 teaspoons tomato pulp (chopped and sieved tomatoes from a jar - or other tomato sauce)
  • 70 grams drained mixed mushroom antipasto (from a jar)
  • 75 grams roughly chopped fontina cheese
  • 3 stalks thyme
  • 1 shop-bought naan bread
  • 2 teaspoons tomato pulp (chopped and sieved tomatoes from a jar - or other tomato sauce)
  • ½ cup drained mixed mushroom antipasto (from a jar)
  • ½ cup roughly chopped fontina cheese
  • 3 stalks thyme

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 7/425ºF. Lay the naan on a lined baking sheet.
  2. Spread the tomato pulp or sauce over the naan, then tumble the drained mushrooms on top and sprinkle with the chopped cheese, before finally strewing with the thyme leaves stripped from the stalks.
  3. Cook in the oven for about 5 minutes, by which time the cheese should be bubbling and melted. Be careful not to burn your mouth.

  • I use pita bread to make pizza, counting 1-2 per person. As a base I use tomato pesto, of which I always have a jar in the fridge. I put on whatever veggies I have in the fridge, maybe some olives, and finish off with some cheese. About 10 mins under the grill and you have a yummy lunch or dinner. Great for kids, as they can choose their own toppings!

  • I make these most weekends for my my family, they are a winner and so easy to make. I vary toppings, adding sweetcorn, tuna, diced ham or leftover gammon, pineapple, tinned mushroom etc. Make them into a meal by adding salad and garlic bread, will never buy frozen pizza again!

  • I tried this, with my own home made naan bread. Will hopefully add the details soon.

  • Tempted to make whole wheat pizza, but had the bright idea to use Whole Wheat Naan instead. What a treat! We used an Italian pizza sauce, then topped them with cheese, grilled artichokes, black olives, onions, banana peppers, mushrooms, tomato, and drizzled with herbed EVOO. Amazing Super Bowl treat, and pretty healthy too! Win! Thanks Nigella!

  • Great taste of the easy cooking pizza. I add some chicken breast, but I'd like to make it salty before making the pizza, and would like to grill it for 8 - 10 minutes.

  • This has now become our pizza (nizza) of choice. Each time with a different topping and different naan breads. We always have the makings for this (but not with Fontina cheese which doesn't keep)

  • My partner is a great lover of pizza and it took little persuasion to get him to try this spin on his favourite food. Thanks for putting this up, I'm gradually trying to wean him off shop-bought pizza.
