Mushrooms? Again? What can I do? I love my mushrooms so much. I probably have said this earlier but will repeat, Not only they are full of nutrition, they are super versatile too. A vegetarian’s meat! Marinade them! Grill them! Fry them! Bake them! Toss them! Eat them Raw! Endless possibilities.
I had bought a packet of some store made oblong naans the other day to whip up pizza at the last minute demand of the kids. I probably am going to use Naan as a base from now onwards. Flat bread, thin crust and crispy! Just wonderful. It was so easy to toss some mushrooms in butter, spread them over naan with cheese and a good few dashes of red chili; bake them till golden and gobble them up in no time. Mouthful! Biteful! Just amazing!

Here is how to make this delicious flatbread!

  1. This recipe is on the money! Naan as flatbread pizza crust is such a fantastic idea! I used herbes de Provence and smoked paprika instead of pepper flakes & it was really yummy! Thanks for a great recipe!

  2. I don’t like mushrooms, bt the whole idea is marvellous. If you are craving for something cheesy,make a quick Naan pizza. 🙂
    Your pictures are amazing!

  3. Delicious flatbread pizza. I buy the Naan that whole foods carries and keep that on hand. It’s delicious and always have a packet in the freezer. Your spicy mushroom and onion combination is delicious and I think it would be delicious with a Swiss like raclette or gruyere melted on top also. Yum!!!
