Margherita Naan Pizza
The weather has been all over the place this winter and beginning of spring. The only thing we haven’t had here in Northeast PA is snow, we had a total of three inches! Not that I’m complaining, I’m always ready for summer weather.
Every Mother’s Day we plant our garden, and that includes lots of regular and cherry tomatoes. This Margherita Naan Bread Pizza would be fabulous with fresh from the garden tomatoes! While I do try to eat seasonally as much as possible, the one thing I can’t live without is tomatoes. I try to find ones at least grown in the U.S. at the grocery store, but even that is sometimes impossible.
A few weeks ago I really wanted to make a margherita pizza recipe, and I had garlic naan bread plus everything I needed for this naan pizza recipe. These are so easy to make, the only real work is slicing the cherry tomatoes. Even that only takes a few minutes. It’s great for dinner on a busy night, or when you just want something cheesy, fresh, and delicious!
I love making pizza at home, and have tried many different recipes over the years. This Margherita Naan Pizza is definitely a summertime favorite!
You might be seeing a lot more quick or slow cooker recipes here. I’m babysitting again, and there is something about my 6-year-old, a 21-month-old, and a 6 week old that make me think that more complicated meals may be impossible! I’ll save those for the days I’m not babysitting.
