Last weekend, my brother and I spent some quality time during his Thanksgiving break. He is picky eater, but while under my care we make have a habit of always trying new foods, dessert (vegan cupcakes are his many favorites) and a lot of learning. Needless to say it’s always a fun and adventurous time together.

It was raining a lot so we decided to put on some Christmas music and make our own pizza using traditional Naan bread. Naan bread  is a authentic, hand-stretched naan, baked in a tandoor oven at high heat; a cooking method which dates back many centuries.It has an authentic look with large bubbles, smoky flavor and airy texture. The naan is prepared with ghee (clarified butter) and flavored with buttermilk, a low-fat source of dairy. One of my favorite brands of Naan bread is by Stonefire Authentic Flatbreads.

I purchased all items at Trader Joe’s except the Beyond Meat. I made the vegan pizza while he made a non-vegan pizza. Here are the items I used.

Healthy Vegan Pizza Ingredients

  • Naan bread
  • Coconut spray
  • Vegan cheese
  • Pizza sauce
  • Italian seasoning (I used Zoe’s)
  • Beyond Meat crumbles

Non-Vegan Healthy Pizza Ingredients

  • Naan bread
  • Coconut spray
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Pizza sauce
  • Italian seasoning (I used Zoe’s)
  • Choice of meat (toppings)

Note: We had some leftover pepperoni from a free lunch-kit box. I illustrated this in the picture above. We decided to use the left over pepperoni on the pizza. Waste not want not.

Assemble all the items and place cheese, toppings and sauce on the Naan bread. We had an assortment of toppings so feel free to add other toppings.  Things will get a little bit messy but with a great Spotify playlist playing, you won’t even mind the mess at all. This is a super easy and kid friendly recipe to have for a rainy day or any day.

After assembling the pizzas, spray the pan and or baking sheets. In an oven set to 375 degrees, bake the pizza until the Naan bread is a bit crispy, which is about 5-7 minutes. It was my first time making a vegan pizza and it came out perfect!  Honestly it was very good too!

If the crust isn’t vegan and it isn’t (you correctly listed the ghee and buttermilk ingredients it contains), the pizza isn’t vegan.
