I’ve mentioned before that Aldo and I are house hunting (somewhat unsuccessfully, 🙁 ). I actually like our current apartment, but one of the reasons I want a house is to have more outdoor space for a garden. Right now I grow herbs on the stoop outside my apartment – I have parsley, rosemary, oregano, sage, lemon thyme, basil, and Thai basil growing. I love having access to fresh herbs whenever I am need them. There is nothing like fresh fragrant herbs to elevate the flavors in a dish.

But I do wish I had a proper garden so I can grow my own vegetables, including tomatoes. Is there anything better than a freshly picked tomato?? I can eat grape tomatoes like candy. Luckily tomatoes are in season now, so while I cannot grow my own (yet), the tomatoes at our local farmer’s market have been pretty awesome. Long term, I might want to live in the middle of nowhere and live off the earth and off of solar panels, but that’s a whole different story 🙂

For these Naan Shrimp Pizzas I picked up some Prego® Farmers’ Market pasta sauces at Walmart, and since I couldn’t decide on just one, I got the Classic Marinara and the Tomato & Basil. These Prego pasta sauces are actually new at Walmart and I fell in love with the sauces after trying them! The tomatoes for these sauces are picked right at the peak of freshness, and the sauces are made with ingredients you can find at the farmer’s market such as vine-ripened tomatoes, garlic, and fresh basil.

I can really tell that farm-fresh ingredients are used because the flavor of the sauces is great. I used the Classic Marinara for the Naan Shrimp Pizzas because I had fresh basil from my herb garden, and I saved the Tomato & Basil for another recipe (stay tuned!). The Prego Farmer’s Market Classic Marinara sauce paired perfectly with my fresh basil from my tiny herb garden and farmer’s market grape tomatoes. If your Walmart doesn’t carry these sauces yet, you can actually order them for in-store pickup and then pick them up at your local Walmart for no extra cost!

Using naan bread instead of pizza dough is one of my favorite ways to make pizza at home. Obviously it is super easy, but on top of that, naan bread has this awesome texture that is perfect for pizza. And since naan usually comes in a package of several pieces, it is a great way to make personal pizzas that everyone can top with their favorite toppings.

What are my favorite toppings, you ask? Anything fresh: fresh herbs, tomatoes, even fresh mozzarella counts! =P But one of my favorite pizzas is seafood pizza. It might sound a bit strange, but we had seafood pizza in the Dominican Republic once and I fell in love with it. This is why I created these Naan Shrimp Pizzas, and I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I do!

20 Minute Naan Shrimp Pizzas

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 2 personal pizzas

Ingredients

  • 10 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 slices naan
  • 1/2 cup Prego Farmer's Market Classic Marinara Sauce
  • 6 oz fresh mozzarella slices
  • 8-10 grape tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 8 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Toss the shrimp with lemon pepper seasoning. Preheat pan with 1/2 olive oil, and cook shrimp about 2 minutes per side, or until fully cooked.
  3. Assemble the pizzas on a large baking sheet: Top each naan with 1/4 cup Prego Farmer's Market Classic Marinara Sauce, mozzarella slices, grape tomatoes, shrimp, and half the basil leaves. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper, if desired. Bake at 400F until the cheese has melted and the pizzas are heated through. Garnish with the remaining fresh basil leaves.

Notes

Pro tip: Flip the naan 'upside down' so that the edges come up and the delicious marinara sauce does not drip off the edges.

  1. Delicious!! I love shrimp and pizza… and shrimp on pizza 🙂 I go through fresh herbs like crazy as well, but we don’t even have a teeny herb garden. My green thumb is non-existent haha.

  2. Wow! I’ve always thought naan would make a perfect pizza crust but never tried it. I now have a go-to crust. I have a yard and have fresh herbs and veggies and am looking forward to picking my first tomatoes soon. There is nothing like picking a fresh tomato or pepper and making a salad topped with garden-fresh basil.
