Grilled Pesto Naan Bread Pizza

A delicious and simple grilled pizza


  • 4 Naan Flatbreads
  • Prepared Pesto – Basil was my choice of pesto (about 2 Tbsp. per pizza)
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese – the amount is really up to you, but grab yourself an 8 oz. bag
  • 1 Red Onion – sliced thin
  • 1 Zucchini – sliced thin
  • Salami slices
  • Optional – basil leaves and grated Parmesan cheese for toppings


  1. Spread about 2 Tbsp. (adjusting the amount to your preference) of Pesto sauce on each flatbread
  2. Add shredded mozzarella cheese over the pesto sauce – I used about 1/4 cup on each
  3. Add the sliced onion, zucchini and salami slices
  4. Grill, covered, over medium heat – moving the pizza around every couple of minutes so you don’t burn the bread – for about 5-10 minutes
  5. Once the cheese has melted, your good to go
  6. If you want, add basil and grated Parmesan to the top
  7. Slice and serve warm


  • I use a gas grill. I have learned that with bread on the grill, I like to turn every other burner off. This is so I don’t scorch the bread. Then, I rotate the bread around so some is always resting over indirect heat.
  • Another option is to turn one side of the grill on and cook the pizzas over the indirect heat on the other half of your grill.
