If the first thing you do when you crave pizza is pull out a take-out menu, it’s time to switch things up a bit. Step (leap?) outside of your comfort zone and make your own at home. Don't worry, this doesn't require whipping up your own dough and waiting for it to rise (or whatever it's supposed to do). Now you can use a traditional Asian flatbread, a.k.a. naan, to bring your favorite food to life. It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3… literally. Step one: Buy a piece of naan. Step two: Top it with delicious ingredients. Step three: Throw it in the oven. Because ain't nobody got time to make that dough.

Although kale is apparently on its way out from superfood stardom, this recipe embraces the nutritious green to bring you something garlicky and delicious. Rather than using traditional basil and (super-expensive) pine nuts to make pesto, this recipe subs in kale and walnuts for a twist on the traditional green sauce.

Honestly, isn’t everything better with an egg on top? The bitterness of the roasted Brussels sprouts pairs perfectly with the salty Parm and the rich, runny egg. This naan pizza is a satisfying meatless dinner, but it’s also great for brunch.

I’m not sure if there’s a better combination than fatty prosciutto and sweet, juicy fig. Well, adding a rich balsamic glaze may make it a little better. And putting it all on a piece of naan and calling it a pizza makes it off-the-charts good.

Obviously, we want all carbs all the time, but there’s always that little voice in the back of our heads, saying, “Hey, what about some protein?” Fine! This naan pizza is topped with white beans, which supply around 9 grams of protein per serving.
