This pizza makes a simple, delicious, healthy, vegetarian meal that’s perfect any night of the week!
Your house is going to smell AMAZING! I love roasting tomatoes and garlic and now there are so many awesome varieties of tomatoes out there. I used red, orange and yellow heirloom tomatoes, but you can use whatever you have in the house or whatever you find at the store. Try all of the different colors! The orange and yellow tomatoes taste a little sweet, have a mild flavor and are less acidic than the typical red ones. This pizza is so simple to prepare, it’s perfect for those busy weeknights and it just might get your picky kids to eat tomatoes!
Do you guys like naan? It’s the only Indian type food that I like (probably not surprising) but it’s incredible. Give me some naan and hummus or guacamole and I am one happy girl. You can find it pre-made in the bakery department of your grocery store.
Seriously, you need to try it.
I’ve also made this as a super duper easy appetizer! Just slice it into bite size pieces or strips and voila! You have a pretty, easy appetizer! And everyone loves pizza, right?
I’m telling you (in my bossy voice) you need to put this in your rotation. Whether it’s Meatless Monday or Pizza Friday, you must make this.
