BLT Naan Pizza - (Throwback Thursdays)

 This Throwback Thursday I am not redoing the recipe to take new photos because I actually really liked my original photos.   I am redoing the recipe to show a stove top friendly method by using store bought naan as the crust.  

In 2011 I wrote:
I was having a dinner time dilemma.  I had two hungry/tired kids, one grumpy husband and I was rushing to get dinner on the table after coming home from piano lessons.  I had nothing really planned so I decided to just wing it and make this BLT Pizza.  It came together surprisingly fast and I know I had it done before I could order pizza.  What a fun dinner.  My son is not a fan of tomatoes (except in sauce form) so I was able to even accommodate him by just making him a bacon and lettuce pizza.  One dish, 4 happy people and only 1 baking tray and cutting board to really wash up.  Yes, now that's my kind of dinner.

1 bunch of romaine lettuce shredded
1 pint of grape tomatoes sliced
4oz Philadelphia Chive & Onion Cream Cheese (see note)
4-6 Store bought Naan for pizza base
8-10 slices of bacon crumbled
Salt and Pepper to taste

Notes:  Chive flavored cream cheese is a key ingredient giving this pizza some extra pizazz.  If you cannot find this, you can try to make your own by mixing plain cream cheese with 1/2 tsp of onion powder and 2Tbs of minced fresh chives.  I also like the texture of the "whipped cream cheese because it spreads much easier.

Start by rendering your chopped bacon.  After it becomes crispy, drain onto plate lined with a paper towel.

On a skillet heat both sides of naan until warmed through and crispy on the outside.   Allow naan to cool down then apply cream cheese and layer with the shredded romaine lettuce, sliced grape tomatoes, salt and pepper and bacon.   Serve immediately.  Enjoy.
