Vegetable Pesto Flatbread Pizza
Showcasing the best of summer veggies is what this Vegetable Pesto Flatbread Pizza is all about. Individual sized, homemade naan flatbread is the best platform for all that summer produce has to offer. Fresh charred corn, sweet cherry tomatoes, bell pepper and red onion, are just some of the veggies that can be used.
Summer is the best time for the bountiful amounts of delicious vegetables. There are so many flavors going on, from garlic-y pesto, to sweetness from the veggies and a mild onion bite, fresh basil along with the crust being so crispy and good.
A lovely sweet bite is achieved by charring the corn first. You don’t have to, but it brings out even more sweetness in the summer corn.
You’ll notice there is no tomato sauce on this pizza, I used homemade pesto instead which adds so much flavor. I switch off between using my Pistachio Pesto and Mediterranean Basil Pesto (you can click on the text for the recipe links).
This flatbread is light because of the use of naan bread. You will not be weighed down by doughy pizza which is not a good thing in the summer heat. If you love a crispy flatbread, naan makes the perfect vehicle for because it crisps up so well. It is both crispy and tender, not tough at all. Serve as a main dish or an appetizer.
You can use purchase naan bread, but making your own is so easy. There’s no yeast so you don’t have to wonder whether it’s going to be active or not and 1 less step and ingredient is always good in a recipe.
