Naan Pizza will Rock Your Dinner Party

I approach cooking as a challenge. If I see something that looks amazing I have to try to make it. If I see an oddball ingredient in the store I want to find out what it tastes good in.

That’s why when a friend of ours recently asked Kelly “I found this truffle oil at TJ Maxx. What the hell do you make with it?” I set out to find a dish to use it in that was easy to make and delicious to eat.

Kelly and I had found frozen truffle oil pizza at Trader Joes and I thought that pizza would be a good place to start experimenting.

That same day I happened to be at a local restaurant supply store and found Naan Bread. We hadn’t been able to find it anywhere so I bought some. On the way home the idea struck me that the Naan would make a perfect pizza crust for my experiments. Viola! The Naan-Pizza was born!

Ingredients:

1 piece of Naan Bread about 6” X 8”

1 Tbsp Feta cheese, crumbled

1 Tbsp Goat Cheese, crumbled

1 cup Portabella Mushroom, diced (or Shiitake or whatever kind you like)

1 cup of regular mushrooms, diced

½ Tbsp Parmesan Cheese

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

½ Tbsp butter

Garlic Salt, Oregano, Basil, Black Pepper, Kosher Salt (in generous amounts)

A drizzle of the Truffle Oil

 

The first step is to make a layer of the Feta and Goat cheese on the Naan Bread.

Then sauté the mushrooms in a separate pan with the Olive Oil, butter and spices.

Pour the hot mushrooms over the layered cheese.

Top with the Parmesan Cheese.

Then generously drizzle the Truffle Oil over the entire pizza. If you are new to Truffle Oil start with a nice amount and experiment with varying amounts as you go.

Then bake the pizza in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes until the Naan turns brown and crunchy on the edges. Remove from the oven, cut and serve.

As the pizza bakes you will start to smell the wondrous aroma of the truffle oil. I truly think the magic of Truffle Oil is held just as much in its aroma as in its taste.

This is a great appetizer for Dinner Parties or a special Weekend Treat.

I'll definately ditto that! Your mushroom photos make me drool. [yep, I am a mushroom lover] ~ I love new ideas like yours! But, I have never purchased feta cheese (had a couple tastes of feta and they did nothing for this cheese lover... Maybe I need to learn what kind of feta cheese to buy?)...

Here are some ideas for you & your friend. Cream some oil into really good butter. Keep it in the freezer to slice over hot steaks. Make garlic bread with it. Add the oil to rice/risotto. Drizzle over eggs. I'm serious! Drizzle it into sauteed mushrooms. Pasta. Mix it into mashed potatoes. Truffle oil adds a wonderful flavor to many things and I love it! Have fun with it! :o)
