Naan Pizza

Naan breads are readily available and they come in really handy when you want a quick snack or dinner. They are perfect as a pizza base and you can use any topping of your choice.

I usually prefer to make the naan from scratch. A healthier option would be to use wheat flour instead of all purpose flour or maybe a combination of both. They all taste equally good.

I used some sour cream as a topping though cheese would be great as well. I made some curried soy mince and used that as a topping. It was filling and delicious.

Any tomato sauce or tomato pulp from a jar would be suitable to use.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
