What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? A Burst of Flavor: Naan Margherita Flatbread! Naan is an exotic oven-baked bread that makes the perfect personal size pizza. It can be made from scratch, but today’s version was available at my local supermarket bakery. I was looking for a quick and easy weeknight meal that wouldn’t weigh me down. Add fresh ingredients and you have a healthy choice for dinner. Basil was in abundance in my herb garden, so I decided to utilize it. Yum!
NAAN MARGHERITA FLATBREAD
One slice of naan bread
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
8-10 basil leaves, whole and cut
1/8 teaspoon oregano
Sea salt to taste
Cracked black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400°. Spread olive oil on naan flatbread. Layer mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, tomato halves, and basil leaves. Sprinkle with oregano, salt, and pepper to taste. Bake on a pizza stone sprinkled with corn meal for 15-20 minutes, until cheese is melted.
