Roasted Corn & Tomato Naan Pizzas with Burrata Cheese
Apparently today was National Eat Your Vegetables Day. Hmmphh, who would have thought a day like that even existed? I mean, shouldn’t everyday be a day to eat your vegetables?
The answer to that question is yes, yes it should. (Okay mom, sheesh.)
Actually, did you know that, according to the USDA, pizza is considered a vegetable?
Oh I’m sorry, we won’t even go into that mess. Let’s back up real quick…dooot…dooot…dooot.
Okay, I don’t know about the pizza that they serve in cafeterias throughout the United States public school system, but I do know that some pizza can actually be pretty healthy.
Especially when it’s loaded with delicious vegetables and fresh basil on top of whole wheat Naan.
I am seriously obsessed with my basil plant right now and you can find me sniffing it like a crazy person every afternoon while I water my plants.
Ugh, smells like heaven.
Heaven paired with rich and creamy Burrata cheese. Believe it or not, I hadn’t even heard of Burrata cheese before moving to Northern California. I tried it for the first time at a local restaurant not too long ago and loved it.
Just like mozzarella, it pairs perfectly with fresh tomatoes and fragrant basil…and corn, of course.
Can you tell I’m having fun with roasting corn and tomatoes lately? They’re so good together!
I’ve actually made this pizza several times for a busy weeknight meal because it’s super easy to throw together. I’m talking like ten minutes (max) to assemble and under fifteen minutes to cook. Pair it with a salad and a glass of wine (optional, but recommended) and you have yourself a quick and easy weeknight meal!
Roasted Corn & Tomato Naan Pizzas with Burrata Cheese
- 1 cup fresh basil, thinly sliced (aka chiffonade)
- 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
- 1 cup fresh corn or frozen and defrosted
- 4 pieces whole wheat Naan
- 8 ounces Burrata cheese (could also use mozzarella or Italian blend)
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons garlic salt
Makes 4 pizzas
Preheat the oven to 350°F and lay Naan on a lined cookie sheet.
Layer corn, tomatoes and onion on top of the Naan then top with basil. Drizzle one tablespoon of olive oil over vegetables on each piece and top with several dollops of cheese or with shredded cheese.
Sprinkle approximately 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt on each piece then place in preheated oven to cook for ten to fifteen minutes (until cheese has melted and vegetables look tender) and then serve immediately, while still warm!
To give them even more flavor, you can throw a little more (uncooked) fresh basil on top after cooking.
I’m telling you, it doesn’t get any easier than this to make a healthy meal full of delicious flavor.
Confession: I eat pizza every week, sometimes twice a week. I love to start with a big salad topped with nuts or boiled egg for protein, and then follow with a warm sometimes frozen fresh from the oven pizza (usually whole grain with veggies!) and a glass of wine. That’s my happy place.
What’s your happy place?
P.S. I read this article that says (good) carbs before bed can help you get more restful sleep. YES!
This naan pizza sounds fantastic and is so pretty too! I’ve never tried burrata cheese before, but I think I’m going to have to! :-)
These are so stunning! I cannot wait to make this! It’s all the flavors I adore. I’ve never tried Burrata. Looking forward to trying it!
Oh my goodness I LOVE Naan. Your pizza looks fantastic–I’ve never thought of putting corn on pizza before, but you’re making me itching to try it. I think I know what I’m having for lunch today!
Naan is such a fabulous bread to use for home made pizzas and yours certainly looks very appetizing. :)
Wait… pizza is a vegetable?! Seriously?!!? Well that’ll make it so much easier to get the recommended servings in ;) Seriously, though, these pizzas – just like everything else you make – look amazing. I’ve used pitas and tortillas as pizza bases before, but never naan. I’ll definitely have to try it some time!
Naan bread is perfect for pizzas! My favourite toppings are pineapple, vegan sausage, and arugula! Delicious!
Oh my goodness, I am SO making these!! I LOVE using naan as a pizza crust :).
I’m making pizza for dinner tonight, and now you have me thinking I need some roasted corn and burrata thrown on there ;-) I actually haven’t tried that kind of cheese before, I’ll have to keep an eye out!
I didn’t eat my veggies on national eat your vegetables day….it was just like any other day, i guess ;) The pizza looks great! My hubby and I love to make naan pizzas
Oh my goodness my mouth is watering, I want that pizza for dinner! (actually I wish I could make it for lunch, im so hungry!) I’ve never heard of burrata cheese til now, but i love whole milk mozz so I’m thinking i would love it. i need to investigate and see if i can get it in boston.
Okay, apparently I’m a day late to all of this eat your veggies day stuff! Good thing I ate a ton of carrots and peas and beans (even though they’re legumes) yesterday :) I love the looks of this naan pizza. Fresh, easy and perfect for summer!
Legumes is such a funny word, isn’t it? :)
I eat my veggies everyday, so high five to me! lol! I love this! Yum! Yum!!! Great idea to use Naan bread.
I missed the Bachelorette last night. Ugh! Will have to catch up on the website. :)
PS: Good article on sleep. I sometimes have a piece of string cheese and a few club crackers about an hour before lights out and I think it helps! :)
Yes, I was happy to read that too and think it makes perfect sense! :)
Virtual high-five! :)
oh gosh naan pizza sounds so amazing, and I love all of the yummy ingredients you topped it with!
YUM! I’ve been seeings lots of Naan Pizzas lately, but this one is really grabbing me! Especially since my basil plant is out of control… Random question: what kind of camera do you use? Your pics are beautiful!
Thanks Taylor! I use a Canon Rebel t3i with a 1.8/50mm lens. If you look back at my early photography (which is not bueno) I was actually using the same camera but I’ve learned so much about how important the right lighting is and I think that helped a lot. It’s a work in progress but I’m trying! :)
That cheese looks incredible! I could just eat that and be very happy. My happy place is a glass of red wine and a cheese platter, yummy!
I had to once again skip over your comments on The Bachelorette as watching tonight hopefully :) (Very excited though)
This looks fantastic lady! I cannot wait until we have fresh tomatoes so I can whip up this pizza!! love it
Thanks Andrea! I did a post a few days back on a documentary that I watched regarding organic farming and it made me think of you! It is called “In Organic We Trust”- you should check it out. It made me fall even deeper in love with what you do! :)
This pizza sounds sooo good. Corn on pizza? Om nom nom. I’ve never seen burrata cheese, but it sounds amazing — and it’s hard to find a cheese I wont like!
Wow, I really love this recipe. I love making pizza on flatbread/naan to change it up. Burrata seems perfect, I wish my boyfriend liked it more. He won’t touch anything that slightly resembles mayo, he’s so weird! It makes ordering apps a little difficult. ;)
Haha, that’s so funny! Yeah, I can imagine that would complicate things. :)
This looks AMAZING! Every recipe you post is right up my alley. This is definitely being served next week!
Thanks Sarah! They’re so easy to make, I hope you like them! :)
Okay, as always i’m drooling over hear looking at this naan pizza. I haven’t heard of this cheese but I do love fresh mozzarella. This would be the perfect post farmers market meal :)
My basil plant has shriveled up and died. I need to buy a new one.
And now I want some naan pizza.
