What we have learned from my what I ate last week posts is that I love using whole-wheat naan bread as a base for mini lunchtime pizzas, and that I love my fig jam. Fig jam is incredibly thick, rich, and sweet, and pairs really well with nuts, cheese, crackers, and fruit. I love pairing it with almond or walnut butter for a scrumptious PB&J. Below is a picture of the fig jam I love so much.
Naan bread is awesome because you can do so much with it. You can heat it up with just a splash of olive oil and pair it with your favorite salad, or use it as a base for a mini pizza like I did above.
I love to play around, and throw different toppings on the naan bread to see what I can create. It’s a bit like painting and very therapeutic. I threw this one together on a whim one day as I was craving some fig jam, and noticed that I didn’t have any bread in the house (which was very odd). I thought, “Why not throw it on the naan bread and heat it up?” Needless to say, I loved the end result of this creation, and if you like fig jam, you will as well.
fig and arugula pizza on naan bread:
- 1 slice of whole-wheat naan bread
- fig jam or fresh fig
- mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced or shredded
- extra-virgin olive oil
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, toss together a handful of arugula with a splash of olive oil.
Did I mention that figs are good for you?
