The Best Naan Pizza

We can’t resist naan pizza! Whether it’s Pepperoni Naan PizzaCaesar Salad PizzaPesto Pizza, and Flatbread Pizza, they’re all quick and beloved by the family, ready in just 15 minutes.

When my son asked for Margherita, it became a must-have. These ‘cheater’ pizzas are a yummy shortcut, offering deliciousness with less effort, although homemade crust still holds a special place.

  • Naan: Serves as the pizza crust, pre-packaged for convenience.
  • Pizza Sauce: Provides the base flavor and moisture.
  • Mozzarella Cheese: Melts to create a gooey, cheesy layer.
  • Campari Tomatoes: Adds freshness and a hint of sweetness with thin slices.
  • Fresh Basil: Offers a fragrant, herby topping to the dish.
  • Parmesan Cheese: Provides a savory, fine-textured finish.
  • Olive Oil: Drizzled on naan pizza for a crispy texture and added richness.

Tomatos, mozzarella cheese, and basil that go into this recipe.

How To Make Naan Pizza

  1. Preheat Oven: Heat to 400°F and use parchment-lined sheets.
  2. Prepare Naan: Place on sheets, briefly bake with olive oil.
  3. Slice Ingredients: Thinly cut mozzarella and tomatoes.
  4. Sauce the Naan: Spread sauce, leave a small crust.
  5. Layer Toppings: Add mozzarella and tomato slices.

Toppings And Variations

  • 2 packages (8.8 ounces EACH; 4 total naan breads) Pre-packaged naan bread (I use/recommend Stonefire original)
  • 1 cup good-quality pizza sauce (I recommend Muir Glen)
  • 8 ounces whole milk mozzarella cheese, very thinly sliced
  • 3-4 ripe Campari tomatoes (or about 3/4 cup halved grape tomatoes)
  • Fine sea salt and freshly cracked pepper
  • Fresh basil
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Extra-virgin olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. While the oven is preheating, line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set the naan bread on the cookie sheets (2 per sheet). Lightly drizzle all the naan with olive oil (about 3/4 teaspoon per naan). Bake in the oven for 2 minutes and then remove.
  • While naan is baking, very thinly slice the mozzarella cheese and thinly slice the tomatoes. Spread about 1/4 cup of pizza sauce evenly on each naan leaving about 1/2 inch of crust around the outside.
  • Add sliced mozzarella cheese over the sauce, leaving some of the sauce exposed. Add the sliced tomatoes on top -- about 7-8 slices per naan pizza. Repeat adding ingredients for each naan pizza.
  • Place pizzas in the oven for 6-8 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Remove from the oven and immediately grate fresh Parmesan over each pizza (about 2 tablespoons per pizza; I like to grate with a microplane so it's super fine). Drizzle more olive oil right on top (optional; I drizzle about 1/2 teaspoon per pizza) and add fresh basil (full leaves if small or chiffonade larger leaves). Cut into slices and serve immediately.
  • This recipe isn't great for leftovers; I recommend eating everything once baked-- otherwise the naan gets soggy.

  1. I hate to sound like such a newbie, but ….what is Naan bread ? Are you just talking about the pre-packaged, already baked, round pizza shaped bread ?

    1. Don’t worry, you don’t! 🙂 Yes exactly! 🙂 I recommend Stonefire’s for this recipe

  2. 5 stars
    Husband liked it… that means it was great! I used a long pizza crust Trader Joe’s has, it is another option. I saw the “Fine sea salt and freshly cracked pepper,” but I did not see in instructions where to add it? I added it with the oil when I baked the naan bread for 2 min. Thanks for the GREAT recipe!!
