20 MINUTE HOMEMADE PIZZA: TOMATO + MOZZARELLA ON GARLIC NAAN
I love making my own pizza at home. It's better for you, you can customize it and it's just fun! Grab yourself a glass (or bottle) of wine, throw on some tunes and start cooking! This recipe is very simple so no worries if you're not an expert in the kitchen (neither am I).

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and start prepping the ingredients for the sauce. Watch the video I made on how on make your own sauce!
UDPATE!: Make sure to peel the skin from the tomatoes before chopping them up for the sauce. It will make the sauce smoother and it will break down easier. While the sauce is cooking, use a fork or large spoon to smash the tomato pieces that need a little help every couple of minutes. Also add a couple of table spoons of EVOO to the sauce with garlic, s + p, and voila! Those small changes made the sauce 10x better and more flavorful.
While the sauce is cooking, prep the other ingredients: get out the naan and drizzle a little EVOO on top so it's not so dry going into the oven.
Set aside the amount of each ingredient that is right for you based on your taste preference. The naan pieces are small so I recommend using about a sprinkle (2 pinches) of everything. Chop the mozzarella ball into thin, round slices. The thinner they are, the faster they will melt, so be sure to monitor the oven based on the amount you chop. Chop basil into thin strips and set aside.
Once the sauce is ready, spoon out evenly onto the naan. Put as little or as much as you like! I like mine thin so I used about 3-4 tbsp for each piece of naan. Place mozzarella rounds on top and place in the oven for 10 mins.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with basil, parsley/cilantro, s + p and enjoy!
