Roasted Veggie Naan Pizza with Lemon-Ricotta Sauce

27 01 2014

Who says pizza isn’t healthy?! This meatless pizza is scrumptious and good for you thanks to the whole grain naan and lots of veggies. To make this super easy on a weeknight, roast your veggies over the weekend so all you have to do is whip up your sauce, build your pizza and bake. See This Girl’s tip below.

Roasted Veggie Naan Pizza with Lemon-Ricotta Sauce

The following makes 2 individual pizzas (compliments of This Girl’s Gotta Eat):

  • 3/4 cup part-skim Ricotta
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 package whole grain Naan (2 flat breads)
  • Roasted veggies, whatever combo you like – I used zucchini, yellow squash, red pepper and red onion
  • 1/2 cup sharp provolone cheese, shredded
  • Baby arugula
  • Fresh parsley

This Girl’s tip: Roast veggies in advance to save yourself time the night you want to make your pizzas. Cut veggies (like zucchini, yellow squash, red pepper and red onion) in 3/4-inch thick slices, toss with olive oil, salt, garlic and a dried herb like rosemary. Roast in a 400 degree oven on a baking sheet, tossing occasionally, for 25-30 minutes until tender. Remove from the oven, cool and store in covered tupperware in the fridge. One extra time-saving thought – I like to roast more veggies than I would use just on the pizza alone, so I have a quick side dish ready to go for another meal during the week.

The night you want to make your pizza, preheat oven to 475.

Stir ricotta, lemon zest, 2 Tbsp olive oil and salt to taste in a bowl.

I like to bake these on a pizza stone, but a baking sheet would work too. Assemble your pizzas on a pizza stone or baking sheet by spreading the ricotta mixture on the flat breads, followed by roasted veggies and cheese (divide ingredients among the two).

Bake until the crust is golden brown; 10 – 15 minutes and cheese is melted and bubbly.

While the pizzas bake, toss some arugula with a little lemon juice, olive oil and salt to taste.

Serve pizza garnished with parsley, alongside the dressed arugula.
