Mediterranean Naan Pizza

I think we all have a list of things we love. Really Love. Can’t live without.

Hummus is on my list.  I grew up eating hummus for as long as I can remember. My Grandma and Mom always had a batch or two ready for any family function–just one perk of being Lebanese I guess! When I was younger hummus was not nearly as popular as it is today.  I do not remember being able to go to the store and have my choice of so may flavors of hummus, let alone brands.  Hummus is a staple in my house and you can always find a combination of homemade and store bought flavors in my fridge because we snack on that stuff constantly with pita, vegetables and pretzels.

But the love doesn’t stop there.  We like to create meals with it, like today’s recipe for Mediterranean Naan Pizza.  This is a simple dinner that was ready in under 15 minutes and so tasty.

Grab a bag of Naan at the store (you can find it at most major grocery stores).  I am able to find whole wheat Naan but feel free to use whatever variety you want.  Read the package and toast the Naan to your liking–we do ours in the oven.  Then pull the Naan out of the oven and spread an even layer of roasted red pepper hummus or hummus of your choice on the Naan. Put it back in the oven for 2-3 minutes to heat the hummus up.  Top with sliced cucumbers and a tabbouleh inspired salad (tabbouleh without the bulgar wheat). Dress it however you want–maybe sprinkle some Za’atar or sumac before eating your pizza or how about a few chunks of feta heated up to go with it. Get creative!

Yield: 2
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Mediterranean Naan Pizza: warm and crisp is Naan topped with roasted red pepper hummus, parsley, tomatoes, olive oil and lemon to make a light and healthy meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 pieces of whole wheat Naan (or Naan of your choice)
  • 1/2 tub of Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (or flavor of your choice)
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 green onions, green parts chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Persian cucumber, thinly sliced (or 1/2 regular cucumber thinly sliced)
  • Garnish with sumac or Za'atar

Instructions

  1. In a medium mixing bowl mix together the tomatoes, parsley, green onions, olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Toast the Naan according to the package (you want the Naan to be just crispy).
  3. Remove the Naan and from the oven and spread the hummus evenly on each piece of Naan. Return to oven and heat for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and cover the hummus with a layer of cucumbers. Then spoon tabbouleh salad evenly on each Naan pizza so you cover the cucumbers {wait to put the tabbouleh over the pizza until you are ready to eat it or the naan will get soggy from the juices}.
  5. Garnish with sumac or Za'atar an serve warm.

Notes

When we eat these pizzas we either cut them into small slices or we roll them similar to a pita would be rolled for a sandwich.
When adding the salad to the Naan pizza make sure you wait until you are just ready to eat the pizza as the olive oil and lemon juice can make the Naan soggy if it sits for too long.
