Garlic Naan Pizza With Roasted Tomato Sauce

Pizza! I love, love pizza! I even love it cold for breakfast. I know I'm weird. But when you are Italian and from New York you more than likely have a serious love affair with pizza. What an easy way to make pizza with the use of Naan. It's a'ready cooked all you need to do its top it off, basically with whatever you want. I chose fire roasted tomatoes this time for a sauce, then mozzarella cheese and tomatoes with a sprinkle of fresh basil. This sauce is super good and simple I mean simple to make. You an make these ahead of time and freeze then also. I also may have a love affair with fire roasted tomatoes don't ask!
Happy Monday!

  4. would you cook them first and then freeze? or assemble them and place in ziploc bags to be frozen and cooked later?

    1. Hi Kristina...I would assemble first. Lay them flat in a zip lock bag on a cookie sheet until frozen and store flat in your freezer. :)
