Mexican Naan Pizza 2
This Mexican Naan pizza is whole grain, meatless, full of those Mexican flavors we all love, and most importantly: delicious.

Mexican Naan Pizza 1

Hola my friends! I know we are RIGHT around the corner from celebrating good old ‘Merica with some delicious American classics. But this week- let’s throw in a bit of Mexico. Mexican foods and flavors have always been one of my favorite things. Chips, salsa, margaritas, guac. Give me ALL the guac. I can’t help myself. Can anyone sit at a table at a Mexican restaurant where they bring the chips and salsa or guac and resist them? I think NOT.

While I love Mexican food, one of my other favorite things in the world is pizza. Pizza and Mexican combined? YEP. Sounds like a strange combination until you put this baby in your mouth. The sauce on here is made from a mixture of black beans, greek yogurt and avocado. Topped with some tomatoes, more beans and arugula, and crisped up in the oven, this Naan is ready to go.

I know that you can make Naan bread from scratch, but I choose to buy the store bought version. There is a brand in my store that sells two perfectly sized pieces of bread in a pack, which is enough for the two of us to have dinner and maybe a piece or two leftover for lunch if were lucky. They even sell a whole grain version, which I LOVE. But, if you want to make your own, more power to you!

After whipping these babies up, I like to dip them in a little bit of extra greek yogurt and some salsa. A little bitta hot sauce wouldn’t hurt anyone either. I give you, Mexican Naan Pizza…
