Grilled Veggie Naan Pizza with Pesto
Is summer flying by or what? The first part of our summer seemed so slow and lazy…but then July kicked in and phew…it’s almost over! School is starting here in less than 3 weeks. Craziness!
If I had to pick a favorite meal this summer…it might be this pizza. I made it a couple times last week with some naan bread I took out of the freezer and some leftover pesto I had in the fridge. I used what I had which happened to be yellow bell peppers, vidalia onions and tomatoes for toppings. And freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
Not much to this pizza…pretty much what you see is what you get and it’s obviously full of veggie goodness. The process of grilling the naan bread was pretty simple. I heated up the grill and brushed some water (you can use oil too) on one side of the bread. I put the bread on the hot grill for a few minutes until I saw light grill marks and it was slightly crisp. At that time I pulled the bread off the grill onto a cutting board and brought it inside to “top”. Once all the toppings were on the already grilled side of the bread, back out to the grill the pizzas went where they cooked for a few more minutes under a closed top grill.
I served the pizza alongside a simple arugula salad with mustard vinaigrette. Perfection.
