Pesto Naan Pizza

Naan (an Indian flatbread) is popping up on store shelves around the country. I've seen it at Target, Costco and my local grocery in the bakery aisle. I've decided they're perfect for individual pizzas! Try The Budget Diet's Pesto Naan Pizza or use your favorite pizza toppings. A Naan pizza crust is ideal for a make your own pizza party...just set out an assortment of sauces and toppings.* It's another frugalicious and fast dinner idea from The Budget Diet girl.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes
Author Kristl Story,


  • Naan Indian flatbread, available at Costco
  • Pesto** use 2 tablespoons per Naan...Costco sells an inexpensive jar and it freezes well!
  • Italian Blend Cheese use 1/2 cup per Naan


  1. Top each Naan with pesto.
  2. Add cheese.
  3. Place on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 425 for 8 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.

Recipe Notes

*Sauce and topping suggestions: red sauce, pesto, alfredo, bbq, pepperoni, sausage, hamburger, canadian bacon, chicken, onion, bell pepper, olives, mushrooms, italian blend cheese and mozzarella. **Costco sells a very reasonably priced large jar of pesto. If you can't use it all before the expiration, it freezes beautifully!

I've entered this recipe in Mr. Food's search for the ultimate weeknight meal!

I always liked flat/thin crust pizzas better than doughy pizzas. Except for when we order those cheese stuffed crust pizzas from Pizza Hut.
