We have been obsessed with flatbreads lately, specifically Naan flatbreads.  Naan is a leavened, oven-baked bread that is moist and tender.  And makes amazing flatbreads 🙂

One reason we love to make flatbreads is they are quick and easy, can be customized to any flavor preference, and taste great.  You simply buy a package of Naan bread, choose your toppings, bake, and enjoy.  The possibilities are endless!

I have a few of our favorite recipes to share with you.

Buffalo Chicken Naan Flatbread

If you or your family likes spicy food, you’ll love this pizza.  It has the perfect amount of spice that is cut with celery chunks.  You can obviously make this as light or as spicy as you want by adding more hot sauce.  We usually make our own individual pizzas because Andrew likes his much spicier than I do.  Then the never-ending debate of Blue Cheese vs Ranch dressing starts…. but you can serve with both/either.

The recipe can be found here.

Mediterranean Naan Flatbread

This is a very fresh and flavorful option with plenty of Greek flair due to all the fresh veggies on it.  This is a great pizza to customize because you can pick and choose the toppings you want to add, and the quantity of each.  I could use a whole container of Feta cheese on my pizza, followed by a whole jar of Kalamata olives, but that’s just me 🙂

Grilled Peach and Arugula Naan Flatbread

This flatbread is made with all fresh ingredients and is perfect for peaches when in season.  Grilling the peaches enhances the sweet flavor and makes them really savory.  Combine this with the basil taste of pesto and you have a little slice of heaven.  You could also use plums instead of peaches for an alternative version of the same pizza.

The recipe can be found here.

Prosciutto and Arugula Naan Flatbread

This is another flatbread made with all fresh ingredients.  The combination of salty prosciutto and spicy arugula on top of crispy Naan bread is a wonderful burst of flavor.  This flatbread won’t disappoint.  If you don’t have arugula on hand you can always substitute spinach.  This will also give you an alternative version of the same pizza.

The recipe can be found here.

I hope you have a chance to sample all of these flatbreads.  They can all be assembled and cooked in less than 20 minutes, so they are great for weeknights, busy activity filled days with the kids, or simply served as an appetizer.  And speaking of kids, they will have fun assembling the ingredients and making their own flatbreads by creating a “build you own” flatbread station.  The Naan flatbreads I used to make these recipes come in 2 sizes so you have the option of making a mini size of each flatbread for smaller appetites or for the purpose of using up leftover ingredients.

Happy Cooking!
