This Pepperoni Flatbread Pizza does not get any easier. It is made using naan as the crust for a low maintenance lunch or dinner. Heavy on the cheese and spices, you won’t even miss the homemade crust. And it only takes 10 minutes to bake!

Ingredients

  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • teaspoon chili flakes
  • 2 naans*
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic grated
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella
  • 6 mini mozzarella balls*
  • cup parmesan cheese
  • 16 pepperonis*

Instructions

  • Review all recipe notes and instructions before beginning. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • On a small plate or bowl, mix together the dried herbs and chili flakes. Set aside.
  • Place both naans on a baking sheet or pizza pan.
  • Divide the sauce between each naan. Using the back of a spoon, spread it almost to the edge of each naan. Divide and sprinkle grated garlic between each pizza.
  • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella and parmesan evenly on each pizza. Place 8 pepperonis and 3 balls of mozzarella on each pizza. Finish each pizza with the herb blend.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling.
  • Slice each pizza into 4 pieces.

Notes

Naan: Swap for any store-bought thin bread, flatbread, or pita.
Pepperoni: I like to use turkey pepperoni because they are a little less greasy and equally as flavorful. Regular pepperoni will work as well.
Mozzarella Balls: Swap fresh mini mozzarella balls for an extra ½ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese.
Use a pan with holes or a pizza stone. This will allow the crust to get nice and crispy
Use a good quality sauce. Store-bought sauce is a great shortcut and there are lots of options full of flavor. I find the jarred sauce to be more flavorful than the cans. Look for a roasted garlic or tomato basil or even a four cheese flavored sauce.
Shred your own cheese. Buy a block of mozzarella and shred it at home. It will melt and taste better.
Let the pizza cool for 5 minutes on the pan before slicing. This will give the cheese time to set so that when you cut the pizza, the cheese will not slide off.
