This Naan Bread Pizza will be the easiest pizza 🍕 you’ll ever make. It’s also 10 minutes’ worth of time and will impress anyone. If you know me, you know that I was raised on combinations and flavors that are sweet and salty. Back home in Europe we absolutely love anything that’s sweet and salty together, so here I topped it with fig and 🧀 cheese, but you can top your naan pizza with whatever ingredients you and your family love.

Why You’ll Love Naan Bread Pizza

This Naan Bread Pizza is the ultimate shortcut. It literally saves you so much time making your own dough, or waiting for a premade dough to defrost or rise.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
