Naan Flatbreads

A few weeks ago my Aunt Deb introduced me to the idea of using pre-made naan to make flatbreads. I thought it was a great way to make flatbreads without the fuss and mess of having to roll out dough.  The smooth and subtle taste of garlic naan is also lovely with the more traditional flavor profiles found in most flatbreads.

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Lay out your naan on a parchment lined (or greased) baking sheet.
  3. Spoon a thin layer of you favorite flatbread sauce on top of the naan – tomato, cream, barbecue, or pesto sauces for example.
  4.  Sprinkle on a layer of shredded or crumbled cheese – mozzarella, asiago, parmesan, cheddar, or gorgonzola for example.
  5. Arrange additional toppings – vegetables or meat.
  6. Bake for ~20 minutes.
