we picked up some fresh naan bread at the farmer’s market in kansas city, and have been making a variation of this pizza for dinner every night this week. although i love most pizzas, i particularly enjoy pizzas like these that don’t have a traditional sauce. by eliminating sauce and minimizing cheese (and meat), it really lets the fresh vegetables and the homemade bread shine as the stars of the meal. there are obviously an infinite amount of variations to these pizzas based on your tastes or what you have lying around, but here’s our favorite version from this week:
-salt and pepper
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-1-2 small yukon gold potatoes, very thinly sliced (i recommend a mandolin slicer if you have one)
-2-3 brussels sprouts, bottoms trimmed off, and thinly sliced
-2 scallions, chopped
-feta cheese, crumbled
-parmesan cheese, freshly grated
-1 large naan bread
coat the naan with a thin layer of olive oil, then add the minced garlic. next, add the sliced potatoes in a single layer over the surface of the pizza. add the scallions and shaved brussels sprouts. top with crumbled feta, grated parmesan, salt and pepper.
bake in a preheated 400 degree oven on a greased baking sheet for 8-10 minutes, until naan is golden brown, potatoes are softened, and cheese has melted.
