Naan Pizza made with Italian Red Sauce

Naan Pizza made with Italian Red Sauce

All my life I have had naan only with regular sabzi. Never had it occurred to me that we could do this with naan. Now why didn't I think of this earlier? This makes pizza making so much simpler and gives it a very desi touch to it. This is why I loved this pizza even more. In order to stay honest with my diet, I chose to use wheat naan instead of the regular one and of course used fat free mozzarella cheese :)
Pizzas in general are very calorie dense because of the base, toppings, sauce and cheese. It has become a popular dish across the world. So it is interesting to see if we can come up with healthier options to make it. Specially if you have a pizza loving husband or child at home like me!
So go ahead and try this out. After all, cooking is all about innovation.. :)
