Because I work in the food industry, I’m often asked “what’s your favorite food?” This question makes me cringe. Life is short, and there are many wonderful things to eat. I suppose if I put in some time and effort, I might be able to create a top 10 list? I’ve never attempted this, but I’m fairly certain pizza would receive a high ranking. It has two things I love: bread and cheese. This naan pizza is my latest collaboration with Wisconsin Cheese, and it highlights three of their cheeses: Ricotta, Mozzarella and Romano.

I love preparing homemade pizza dough. However, store-bought naan bread is a fantastic alternative when I want to throw dinner together in under 30 minutes: it’s tender, chewy, and the perfect size for single serving pizzas. These can also be sliced into thin wedges for party appetizers (March Madness, anyone?)

Balsamic glaze adds a touch of sweetness here that you would normally get from tomato sauce. You can certainly swap it out for sauce if you’d prefer a more traditional pizza. Another option, either as a swap or addition, is halved grape tomatoes. They’re small enough to properly roast in 15 minutes and will add a great flavor and texture to the pizza.
