Serves 2     adjust servings

Preparation 5m Cook Time 8m Total Time


  • 2 cooked naan flatbreads
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup tomato sauce
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1 cup baby heirloom tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste


Brush both sides of each naan bread with olive oil.

Grill pan instructions: heat the grill pan over medium-high heat. Place naan in the grill pan, pressing it down with a spatula to sear. Allow the naan to cook 2-3 minutes until it just begins to char,  then flip it and cook on the second side for 1-2 minutes until browned. Remove to a sheet pan, then repeat with the second naan. 

Outdoor grill instructions: heat grill to 350 degrees F. Place both naan on the grill and close the lid. Cook 2-3 minutes until grill marks appear underneath. Flip the naan and close the lid, cooking another 1-2 minutes until browned. Remove to a sheet pan.

Spread the charred side of each naan with half of the tomato sauce. Arrange mozzarella and halved tomatoes each, then place them back on the heat (if using a grill pan, reduce heat to medium). Cover and cook about 2 minutes until the cheese is beginning to melt. Remove from heat, sprinkle with fresh basil, salt, and pepper. Serve immediately.
