Yields 2 to 4 servings.


  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 naan bread
  • 3 pieces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tomato, sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 6 basil leaves, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • In a small bowl, combine the garlic and oil, and mix well. Brush half the mixture over the naan. Bake for 5 minutes, or until the top is crisp.
  • Arrange the cheese on the hot naan, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add a layer of tomatoes, and season again with salt and pepper. Bake for another 5 minutes, and then broil for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Mix the remaining garlic-oil mixture with the vinegar, and stir until a smooth emulsion forms.
  • Drizzle the vinegar mixture over the pizza, and sprinkle with basil. Slice, and serve hot.
