Cooking with Heinen’s | Naan Pizza with Grilled Autumn Vegetables

Cooking with Heinen’s | Naan Pizza with Grilled Autumn Vegetables

Autumn vegetables are so abundant and creating a delicious grilled vegetable pizza using naan couldn’t be easier. Naan is a perfect vehicle for just about anything from sweet treats to savory. Toasted naan with bananas and Nutella is a favorite. Today we are starting with grilled naan, topping it with whipped ricotta with a slight hint of lemon and olive oil. I would be happy to stop there but we are going further with grilled autumn vegetables, arugula and a bit of crumbled goat cheese.

Whipping ricotta transforms it into a smooth and creamy ingredient that is extremely versatile. The savory version can be used with salads, crostini, and pasta, while a sweet version is perfect on fresh fruit or baked goods. Its uses are limited only by your creativity.

Grilled Vegetable Naan Pizza with Whipped Ricotta

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 small zucchini
  • 2 summer squash
  • 2 Carrots
  • 3 tbsp. plus 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • Baby arugula
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • 4 large pieces of Naan
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 1 cup whole-milk ricotta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

DIRECTIONS

For the Whipped Ricotta:

  • Combine the ricotta, olive oil, lemon juice, zest and salt, in a food processor with metal blade or a blender.
  • Blend for 2 minutes or until silky smooth in the food processor or blender, stopping to scrape down the sides of the container once or twice with a spatula. Set aside in the refrigerator.

For the pizza:

  • Cut zucchini and summer squash and carrots lengthwise no more than ¼ inches thick. 
  • Brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and grill over medium-high until charred and just tender, 3 minutes per side. Toss scallions with 1 teaspoon olive oil and grill, turning occasionally, until just tender; transfer to a board and cut into pieces.
  • Lightly brush oil onto Naan bread and grill until toasted, 1 minute per side,
  • Spread ricotta on each piece of Naan, then top with zucchini, squash, carrots, tomatoes and and scallions. Top with baby arugula and a few goat cheese crumbles. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
