BLT Naan Flatbread Pizza

If you're a lover of BLT Sandwiches, this is a recipe that you're going to want to try. The ingredient list is a short one and making these little pizzas is a breeze. Bacon, lettuce, tomato, cheese, green onion and mayonnaise meet up atop pillow-y, soft naan flatbread. I utilize naan bread to make a variety of pizzas. {My favorite is my Cheesy BBQ Flatbread with Grilled Vegetables.} Using naan as a starting point for a quick, easy dinner is a no-brainer. It can easily be found in the bakery section of most grocery stores these days {I like these} or you can search online for recipes to make your own at home {something I plan to try very soon}.

Our eighteen-year old daughter works at a pizza restaurant that serves an amazing BLT Pizza. I based the development of this recipe upon their concept. But, since we love naan for pizza, I decided to swap it in to take the place of traditional dough. Worked like a charm.

The pizza is assembled by melting a little shredded cheese on top of the naan, then piling on cooked bacon and the vegetables. Drizzle on some mayo before service for the perfect dinner, lunch or snack.

Yields 2 servings.


2 Naan {approximately 7 - 9 ounces total}
1/2 - 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons milk
6 - 8 pieces bacon, cooked and cut/crumbled into bite-size pieces
1/2 cup thinly-shredded iceberg lettuce
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced or cut into chunks
1 green onion {green parts only}, thinly-sliced


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lay naan bread out onto a baking sheet. Top with shredded cheese.

Bake for 7 - 10 minutes or until cheese is just melted. {Naan should still be mostly soft.}

Meanwhile, add mayonnaise and milk into a small glass jar. Lid tightly and shake thoroughly until well-combined. {Alternatively, mayonnaise and milk can be whisked together in a small mixing bowl.} Set aside.

Remove naan from oven. Top with bacon, lettuce, tomatoes and onion. Cut each naan into four pieces. Drizzle with thinned mayonnaise. Serve.
