Naan For Me, Thanks.

Wondering “Hmm, when is Maggie going to do anything that even remotely has anything to do with recipes?” 

Well, I’ve finally got something recipe related.

There’s a group of us here who always eat dinner together, and we’ve started planning it to where one person cooks for everyone once a week, that way we don’t spend a ton of money on food while we’re here. My plan was to make these little mini pizza biscuits (recipe here: http://www.melissas-cuisine.com/2013/04/pizza-sliders.html). 

So I get to the store, looking for ingredients to make biscuits from scratch, cheese, pizza sauce, and pepperoni. For the biscuits, I would need flour, crisco, baking powder, baking soda, and buttermilk.

 

Guess what no one in the UK uses.

Crisco and buttermilk. And, apparently, pepperoni. Greatttt.

So, after starting to kind of panic a little and after asking a shop attendant if they had buttermilk, I improvised. Turns out, naan makes fantastic pizza crust. 

Maggie’s Naan Pizza

  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celcius
  • Put your naan on a cookie sheet, then put pizza (or pasta, like I used) sauce, and grated cheese. 
  • Put it in the oven for five or so minutes (or until you think the cheese is brown enough for your taste).
  • As Natalie learned, LET IT COOL BEFORE EATING. Boiling hot cheese is not so fun. 
  • Enjoy! 🙂
