pkg. (8.8 ounces)
whole wheat naan
or store bought pesto
about 12 ounces
sliced crosswise, 10-12 slices
Preheat grill* for direct heat grilling.
Brush top sides of naan breads with 1 Tbs. olive oil. Place, oil side down, on grill. Grill until hot and just beginning to blacken, 1-2 minutes. Meanwhile, brush remaining olive oil on pizza crust that is facing up (this will be the bottom of your pizza once you turn it).
Turn pizza crust so top of pizza is now facing up. Top with pesto, mozzarella and tomato slices. Grill until cheese is melted and pizza is heated through, 3-4 minutes.
Transfer to serving board or platter. Top with arugula and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
Makes 2 dinner servings or 12 appetizer servings.
*Oven directions: Prefer to bake Pesto Caprese Naan Pizza in your oven? Just preheat oven to 425F. No need to brush the crust with olive oil. Just top with the pesto and the toppings and bake on a baking sheet until the cheese is melted and the pizza is heated through, about 8 minutes. Then top with arugula and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
