While my Memorial Day holiday didn’t involve any sort of tradition, it did involve a delicious new pizza concoction. I picked out a package of frozen Naan bread at Trader Joe’s last week, as a first-time grocery purchase there were no grand recipe schemes in my head yet, but I like buying random new things each week to see what I’ll come up with.
In my opinion, you can never go wrong with a mix of roasted vegetables, cheese, and a delicious bread. At the last minute, I added in some chunky-vegetable Marinara sauce, which means I technically ended up with a pizza!
Asparagus & Naan Pizza
~8 asparagus spears (frozen)
purple onion slices
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
~1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
2 slices Mozzarella cheese
2 slices Naan bread (frozen)
~1/4 cup Marinara sauce, divided
Seasonings to taste
Heat the oven to 400*. In a casserole dish, I combined all of the veggies, drizzled with a little bit of Canola Oil, and seasoned with oregano, garlic powder and basil leaves. They roasted for ~12 minutes. After 10 minutes, I put the two Naan slices in the oven (on a cookie sheet), to heat them for ~2 minutes.
Remove everything from the oven. Top the bread with pasta sauce, cheese, and vegetables. Voila!

How do like to eat Naan?
I foresee an avocado + bean spread for my next trial, but I’m always open to suggestions! 🙂
