Looking for some pesto naan pizza? Here’s an easy recipe made on naan bread! We love pizza, and we love it even more when it’s quick and easy to make, which means this recipe is perfect.
You might think that dietitians avoid pizza like the plague, but that’s so not true! We love pizza! It has carbs in the crust, protein and fat in the cheese, and nutrients in whatever other toppings you might choose. In this recipe, we use spinach and tomato!
You might think that only tomato sauce can be used on pizza, but you’d be wrong! Pesto pizza is absolutely delicious, and I would recommend it to anybody. Whether you make your own or use a jar of pesto, this recipe is sure to satisfy you.
You can split this in two and serve with a side of salad or vegetables, or eat it as a single serving.
There are no wrong choices with this one! I love to toss together a naan pizza when I just don’t feel like cooking or I don’t have time to cook. It’s the perfect solution!
