I’ll show you how to make a simple naan pizza with pesto using an oven or air fryer which makes it great for those who don’t have an oven like students in dorm rooms!

I’ll also show you how to make caramelized onions for this naan pizza but if you’re short on time, you can skip the first step and head straight to making the naan pizza or making/preparing the pesto!

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 1
  • 1 naan

  • ¾ tsp olive or vegetable oil
  • pinch baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 3 tbsp vegan pesto
  • handful cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 tbsp vegan cheese of choice

  1. Preheat oven to 425F (or air fryer at 375F).
  2. Heat oil in a small-medium skillet over medium heat, and add onions. Sprinkle with baking soda, and cook onions, stirring occasionally, for about 10 mins, or until golden brown. Stir in salt, and transfer from the pan to the pesto-covered naan.
