This ultra cheesy naan pizza topped with sausage, mushrooms, and arugula is a quick, flavorful weeknight meal.


  • 0.25 Pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 4 Ounce sliced mushrooms
  • 2 garlic naan breads
  • 2 Tbsp pesto (storebought or homemade)
  • 4 Ounce fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded gouda cheese
  • 0.25 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 2 green onions, chopped


  1. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat it to 425 degrees.
  2. Add the sausage to a skillet and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes. About halfway through, add the mushrooms. Saute until mushrooms are browned and sausage is cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Place the naan breads on a piece of parchment paper on top of a flat cutting board or cookie sheet (this makes the transfer to the pizza stone much easier!). Spread a heaping Tablespoon of pesto over each piece. Divide the mozzarella and gouda cheese evenly between them. Spread the sausage and mushrooms over the pizzas then finish with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
  4. Slide the parchment paper onto the hot pizza stone. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and just starting to brown around the edges.
  5. Top the pizzas with the arugula leaves and chopped green onions. Serve immediately.

Notes: If someone was really hungry they could probably eat an entire naan pizza, but we've found we generally get 4 servings out of this recipe.
