One of the duties I handle in our household is making lunches for my kids to take to school. Since it gets very boring whipping up sandwiches every day, I like to spruce things up and have a variety of goto meals that are healthy and easy to make (cause who really has time with two kids running your life!?).
I recently discovered these mini naan rounds President’s Choice make (they also come in whole wheat) and immediately had the idea to use them for mini pizzas. They take no time to put together and cook, the kids love them and they travel well in their school bags. It’s a win-win all around and has become a staple of my lunch menu.
Here is my quick and easy mini naan pizza recipe.
- Pack of President’s Choice naan rounds (traditional or whole wheat)
- Package of Piller’s Toppings pepperoni (free of gluten and MSG)
- Fresh basil
- Pizza sauce
- Grated cheese (mozzarella or cheddar)
Preheat oven to 350F/175C (you can also use a toaster oven for these if you prefer).
Place three or four President’s Choice naan rounds evenly on a baking sheet.
Spread a small amount of pizza sauce on each naan round.
Add a small layer of cheese and place a few small pieces of fresh basil on top.
Add three pieces of the Pillar’s Toppings pepperoni to each naan round (I use this brand because it’s free of gluten and MSG and I find it’s quite tasty. Any other pepperoni or meat substitute will work just fine).
Add more cheese on top of each and place tray on middle rack in oven.
Cook for 8 – 10 minutes (or until the cheese is fully melted on top).
Let cool and cut in half to serve.
This recipe works for my kids and is the easiest to make in the morning before school. You can add green peppers, mushrooms or any other type of vegetables your kids will eat to make it healthier. You can also substitute the pepperoni with another kind of meat (such as ham) or just make it all veggie if you wish.
