This naan bread pizza is a staple in our house because it’s so darn easy and so darn tasty! We love to keep the ingredients on hand so we can whip it up any time the craving hits. 

This flatbread recipe can be enjoyed as an entree, side dish, or appetizer and can be easily customized to suit your tastes!

What is Greek Flatbread Made Of?

  • Naan Bread – Any variety will work!
  • Olive Oil – A drizzle of olive oil helps the herbs and toppings stick and adds a layer of flavor depth to the bread.
  • Garlic – I recommend fresh garlic for the best flavor. 
  • Oregano – A sprinkle of dried oregano adds a delicious earthy flavor.
  • Toppings – We’re using all of the classic Mediterranean toppings including walnuts, purple onion, kalamata and castelvetrano olives, sun dried tomatoes, roasted bell peppers, and feta cheese.

How to Make Naan Bread Pizza

This tasty naan bread pizza recipe is ready to go in under 20 minutes!

Tips and Variations

  • Add balsamic drizzle. Add another layer of flavor with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar or glaze right before serving. 
  • To save time, use sliced olives, pre-crumbled feta, pre-chopped walnuts, and pre-sliced tomatoes and peppers.
  • Swap the cheese. For a slightly different flavor profile, try using goat cheese in place of the feta.
  • Try other nuts. I love the flavor the walnuts add, but you could also use pine nuts, pecans, sliced almonds, or just skip the nuts entirely. 
  • Not a fan of sun dried tomatoes or roasted peppers? Simply omit them or swap them out for another ingredient that sounds good to you!

Serving Suggestions

This Greek flatbread recipe is hearty enough to be served all on its own as an entree, but you can also serve it with a simple side dish, as a fancy naan bread appetizer at your next party, or as a more filling side dish option!

How to Store

Refrigerator: Baked Greek flatbreads can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 days. If you are using balsamic glaze, I recommend waiting to add it until just before serving. It will make the naan pizza soggy if it sits too long.

Reheating: To reheat leftovers, use a toaster oven or conventional oven on low heat. Allow the flatbread to warm for several minutes or until heated through. Alternatively, microwave for a few seconds.

Freezer: I don’t recommend freezing these flatbreads. The fresh ingredients won’t hold up when thawed.

Can You Use Bread to Make Pizza Crust?

You can absolutely use certain types of bread in place of pizza crust. And this Mediterranean naan pizza is the perfect example! The naan bread serves as the perfect base for all of the toppings.

Is Naan Bread Similar to Pizza Dough?

Not quite. Pizza dough is made with a simpler list of ingredients that consists of flour, yeast, salt, and water. Classic naan bread, on the other hand, is made with a base of egg and yogurt, giving it a richer flavor and thicker, softer texture.
