Thin, fluffy naan makes an ideal no-fuss base for quick weeknight pizzas; a simple cumin-spiced spinach topping gives a nod to the flatbread's Indian heritage. Regular ready-made naan is high in sodium, but if you want to lower your intake, just switch to a sodium-reduced version, such as the one made by President's Choice.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 4 garlic naan or plain naan
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 pkg fresh baby spinach coarsely chopped
  • 2 plum tomatoes diced
  • 1/2 cup extra-smooth ricotta cheese

Method

In skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic, ginger and cumin seeds, stirring, for 1 minute. Add onion, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 4 minutes.

Stir in spinach; cook, stirring often, until wilted and no liquid remains, about 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice; remove from heat.

Arrange naan on large rimless baking sheet; divide spinach mixture among naan. Top with tomatoes; dollop ricotta cheese over top. Bake in 425 F (220 C) oven until bottoms are golden, about 15 minutes.
