BLT Salad Whole-Grain Tandoori Naan Pizza

There are two things I would normally avoid like the plague...doughnuts* and pizza.  But now, with this BLT Salad Naan Pizza, I can indulge without guilt

Satisfying without being heavy, this pizza is so easy, it can be enjoyed when you need something in a hurry.  It's delicious warm pizza style or cold folded into a wrap.  I love either with sliced grape tomatoes or sun-dried tomatoes.  The spicy piquancy of the blue cheese and the slight tanginess of the creamy goat cheese offer an intriquing combination of flavors.

                                         Yay! Pizza Loaded with Pleasure...
                                                   Without The Guilt!

Serves 1-2

  • 1/ea. approx. 4.4 oz prepackaged whole-grain tandoori naan bread
  • Approx. 1/2 TB extra virgin olive oil
  • Approx. 2 c. washed and dried arugula leaves
  • Approx. 3 TB crumbled goat cheese...ideally from a log of creamy goat cheese
  • Approx. 2 TB crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 slices crisply cooked bacon (I used turkey bacon), crumbled into medium-sized pieces
  • Approx. 1/2 c. washed and sliced lengthwise grape tomatoes, or about 3 TB medium diced sun-dried tomatoes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Balsamic Vinegar Glaze to taste...I used Trader Giotto's from Trader Joe's

  1. Preheat oven to 400º.
  2. Spray (ideally) or sprinkle the naan bread lightly with water and place directly onto the oven rack. (I used the lower rack of a toaster oven.)
  3. Bake approx. 2 minutes.  Remove from the oven and place onto a cutting board or pizza paddle.
  4. Brush lightly with the olive oil.
  5. Distribute the arugula over the naan and sprinkle with the cheeses.
  6. Scatter the crumbled bacon and sliced grape tomatoes, or diced sun-dried tomatoes, over the arugula.
  7. Sprinkle the salad topping with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste and drizzle with the balsamic vinegar glaze.
  8. Enjoy warm pizza style or cold folded into a wrap.
                                                       Feel Free...
                                                To Indulge Away!

Enjoy as a quick, light lunch or dinner, or even as a snack.  Sliced into smaller pieces, this pizza would make a terrific appetizer!
