We call this Indian pizza, and it’s become a hit in our household. For one thing, it’s super easy to prepare. I heat the toaster oven for ten minutes at 400 degrees and then cook the frozen naan for five or so minutes, flipping once.
The crust is wonderful–crunchy, soft, and flavorful. Unlike a regular pizza, the filling is inside, rather than on the top, and it’s more like a paste. The satisfying mixture includes paneer (Indian cheese), onion, coriander leaves, spices, carrot fiber, green chili, and ginger. Sometimes I put a small amount of butter and salt on it, but it doesn’t really need it.
Each piece has only 230 calories and four grams of fat, but it tastes like it has a lot more. We eat one piece each as a snack or as a small meal, but if you wanted to make a more substantial meal you could prepare two pieces, and the result would be comparable to a small pizza.
The package contains four pieces. Because they’re handmade, they’re not uniform, and it may at first appear that the package contains less than four. Relax. They’re all there.
You can find Paneer Masala Naan in the freezer case at Trader Joe’s for $2.29. We usually buy two packages at a time.
If you love pizza and Indian food, you’ll love this.
Five out of five stars.
