greek flatbread pizza

One of my very favorite things about Fridays is that it’s pizza night in our house. I have experimented with, what seems like, hundreds of different toppings to make some pretty delicious combinations. Last Friday I decided to try something completely different: instead of using the traditional pizza crust for the base, I used the packaged Naan that can be found at your grocery store!

Sometimes, I get really into my pizza making on Fridays. I come up with the most complicated, and time consuming, ideas that have me cooking in the kitchen all night! I thought by using the Naan as the “crust” that would cut down on a significant amount of time. The best part about this pizza is definitely the time aspect, but it was so tasty too! Greek salad is one of my favorite salads to make, and since we are finally at the point in the spring when the produce is looking perfect, I thought tomatoes and cucumbers would be an amazing pizza topping for this quick Friday night dinner! 

And, as for the pesto, I always seem to have a container of it in my fridge. I think it’s a great staple that can be added to/on top of so many different things, it’s a great thing to keep on hand 🙂 

Greek Flatbread Pizza
Makes two personal-sized pizzas

1 package original Naan {2 flatbreads in package}
1/4 cup homemade or store-bought pesto
1 cucumber, peeled & diced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 small red onion, chopped
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
2-3 tablespoons tzatziki sauce {I used store-bought}
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place flatbreads on a baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumber and red onion; season with salt and pepper, if desired. Mix with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar; stir to combine and allow to sit for at least 5 minutes. Spread pesto onto the flatbread, followed by the shredded mozzarella cheese. Bake for 5-10 minutes, just until the cheese begins to melt. Remove the flatbreads from the oven and top with the tomato mixture followed by the feta cheese. Drizzle tzatziki sauce over the pizza, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
