Quick and Easy Pesto Parmesan Pizza Recipe

via Quick and Easy Pesto Parmesan Pizza Recipe

It’s not so much homemade as it is assembled at home, but pizza is pizza, am I right?

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Unroll pizza dough (this is Wewalka Flatbread)*
2. Lightly spread small spoonfuls of pesto over dough.*
3. Add a few handfuls of mozzarella.
4. Drop spoonfuls of marinara in sections across pizza.
5. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over pizza.
6. Cook as directed.
7. Enjoy washing your one dish: A SPOON!


*You can make your own pizza dough and pesto but the recipe won’t be quick and easy anymore.

Boss Budget Naan Pizzas

A few years ago naan was a fancy bread I had never tried. Now I love naan bread but tend to stay away from it because if it isn’t on sale at the supermarket it can be pricey. Recently an Aldi by me was remodeled and reopened. When scoping it out I found and they have a 4 pack of naan bread for less than $5. Needless to say, I was impressed and excited to try new recipes with it.

My love of pizza cannot be understated. I could easily eat pizza for every meal every day and be content if only my stomach would be too! If you use this naan bread you can have 4 meals for around $10 or less depending on what you have in your kitchen.

I had pasta sauce, salsa, and Mexican cheese already in my fridge. In addition to the naan, I got a green pepper, an onion, and some mozzarella cheese. I made two pizzas, one with the salsa and Mexican cheese, and one with the remaining ingredients. It took less than a half hour start to finish.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place naan on a baking sheet and sprinkle with a bit of water.
  3. Throw whatever you want on there!
  4. Cook 6-8 minutes or until cheese is melted and it looks bomb

This received rave reviews from my boyfriend and my roommate. She makes hers without the sauce for a tasty cheesy bread. I’m looking forward to making BBQ chicken pizza or classic Hawaiian the next time I pick up a pack of naan. Yum!
