    Naan Pizza

    Well, as I promised you in the About Me section, I want this place to be a place where we can be real and totally authentic about our journey. So it only seems fitting then, that after my first recipe post of my delicious and super healthy Basa Curry, I would post this! Because this is what life is really like in our house: we try really hard to be healthy and eat well, but at the same time, life is crazy busy and reality is, we have picky eaters. And there are days, I just can’t handle the battle that most meal times seem to bring. So sometimes, the super healthy, super clean foods get replaced with the not-so-healthy-quick-fix-everyone-will-love-no-tears-PIZZA!!!

    I’m actually not even totally sure that this qualifies as a “recipe”, as I really am just assembling store-bought ingredients, but I’ve had a few requests to post this delicious treat, so here goes!

    Having 3 small kids, it’s sometimes hard to find quick and tasty lunches that you know they will enjoy. Pizza is something I know will be a winner, time and time again. I won’t have to fight through almost every bite with them (can I get a witness?) and they will usually eat it with enjoyment!

    I do love pizza from scratch and I have a great recipe for making your own dough that I will share in the near future, but for those quick lunches or dinners on the go, these Naan bread pizzas are a go-to for us! The beauty of them is, you can make them however you want! Just like regular pizza, add any topping you have on hand and you’re set! I happened to have pepperoni and crumbled bacon in the fridge, so that’s what I put on mine today.

    Let’s take a second and talk about this sauce though. The White Linen Collection Marinara Sauce. It’s. Amazing. A good friend of mine used to rave about how awesome it was and when I saw it Costco for almost double the price of the Kirkland sauce, I thought, no way am I buying THAT! Then one day it was on sale, so I tried it and let me tell you, I will NEVER GO BACK! It’s just that amazing. It comes in a 2-pack for about $8 (when they are on sale, I stock up!). It’s all natural, no preservatives, authentic Italian-made, straight-up goodness! It will take your pizza (or pasta for that matter), to the next level!

    IMG_7648One more tip I’d like to share with you that I’ve learned recently and it’s a game changer. Before you put your pizza in the oven, sprinkle a bit of oregano on top of the cheese. Oregano is a spice known to enhance the flavor of cheese (and soups). And oregano is packed full of nutrients like vitamins, minerals and omega-3’s, so you can actually feel a little less guilty for eating all the cheese and carbs!

    We love this recipe! The first time I had it at your place I was so impressed, shared it with hubs and he was a huge fan! He would request this meal!! Lol but the oregano tip is new and ill def have to give that a shot!! 🙂 Also, I MUST concur about the white linen sauce. Once we discovered, we never turned back – it’s the only one we use and on the last sale I believe we bought 8 or 10 jars!!!!
