mozzarella & spinach pizza with basil

We used Hot Bread Kitchen’s flaky naan as a base for our take on the weeknight pizza.

The naan crisps up beautifully along the edges and big piles of spinach tossed with cheese wilt right on top. Instead of making a classic tomato sauce we stirred balsamic into tomato paste for a bright and punchy layer. Cook, relax and enjoy!

What you'll need: 2 cloves garlic (0.4 oz) 8 oz fresh salted mozzarella 1½ oz Pecorino 3 pieces Hot Bread Kitchen naan (3.8 oz each) 4 Tbsps tomato paste (2.5 oz) 2 Tbsps balsamic vinegar (1 oz) 6 oz baby spinach 1 oz basil coarse salt olive oil freshly ground black pepper
