Quick/Cheat Pizza - Cook with Kids!

This is BBQ Chicken, Roasted Peppers, Pesto and Mushroom.

I love pizza but for me it's ALLLL about the crust! I'm not much of a bread maker....*wispers* I cant be bothered and pre bought crusts are revolting. So I kind of fell into this one Friday night when I didn't have any bread in...I know not even in the freezer! So it was a crumpet or this and now I love it. I always welcome things to make with my kids aswell that are not too messy or complicated and this is ideal, the boys love picking their own toppings.


  • Pre heat your grill to full.

Pick whatever toppings you like, the one at the top is Chicken the one below is veggie so I will show you how I made the below one.

  • Pack of Naan Breads, I use plain but go wild if you like Garlic etc.
  • BBQ sauce or Tomato Paste...I hate the latter.
  • Grated Cheese, go traditional with mozzarella or mature cheddar or whatever you like.
  • Chargrilled Peppers 
  • Mushrooms
  • Spinach

Place the Naan Breads bottom side up and grill for a few minutes until crispy.

Take them out of the grill, turn them over and apply a coat of BBQ sauce or Tomato paste.

Place Peppers all over.

Then layer mushrooms around - and any other ingredients you want.

Put the grated cheese all over the top.

Then sprinkle with spinach.

Place under the grill for a about 6 minutes or until the cheese starts to turn golden.


Give it a go why not try, its embarrassing how easy it is!

  1. Look fab - we make cheats calzone in the same way with a tortilla - toast under grill then simply fold over. Naan breads would be more substantial though x

    1. Mmmm like Quesdilla! I would heat Naan a little first or it will snap! x
