#PepperParty Day 2: Onions and Peppers Naan Pizzas

#PepperParty prize graphic

I’ve joined Divemex and a bunch of my fellow bloggers to celebrate all things bell pepper in a #PepperParty like no other! This is the 2nd day of the party (who doesn’t love a party that lasts more than 1 day?!), during which we’ll be sharing delightful ways to gobble up those gorgeous red, yellow, and orange bell peppers (as if raw isn’t fantastic enough on its own!) AND there will be prizes! Oh, yes, will there be prizes!

Each day of the party will feature a different prize valued at around $200. Today’s prize: a Wusthof Classic 8” Chef’s Knife-a $190 value! My most favorite knives are the two Wusthof ones I have–my treasures. They are well-balanced in the hand and slice beautifully. More like artist’s tools than crude cutting devices, you’ll want to show off your Wusthof. And use it often! You can enter for your chance at this awesome Chef’s Knife in the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post.

onions and peppers naan pizza

Growing up, one of my favorite pizzas from our usual pizza joint was covered in thin strips of green peppers and onions. Sure, you could scare away vampires for miles after eating it, but it was such a pleasure. Onions and Peppers Naan Pizzas are my updated version, using colorful (and more flavorful) yellow and orange peppers, while pre-cooking the onions so they get a little more caramely. This would probably be even better if you went so far as to caramelize the onions first, but I was trying to keep this manageable enough to be a weeknight meal. Goat cheese replaces traditional tomato sauce and mozz, elevating this pizza to a whole new level of sophistication. As for the naan–what can I say? They make fabulous pizza crusts and are available just about everywhere these days. I prefer them to pre-made pizza crusts. I could eat this just about every day and be happy.

    Pizza on Naan bread…excellent idea!

  2. Chelle {Everyday Polish}

    Pizza on Naan sounds like something I would devour! I actually love eating bell peppers raw with hummus- simple and delish!

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      Peppers + hummus = match made in heaven! Fabulous snack!

  3. Monique

    Those peppers look so buttery soft!
    Great idea to use naan! isnt naan so good? I once attempted to make a naam pizza and what ended up happening was that I just kept ripping pieces of the naan off and tasting it. Before I knew it, no more naan.

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      Once I start eating naan, it’s hard to stop! I love the garlic naan just warmed up… mmmm! But they’re so wonderful as pizza crusts, too, if you can stop yourself. ;)

  4. Jenny

    ohh this looks so yummy!! I looooove Naan bread. Goat cheese and peppers seem to be magical together! I like having my bell peppers sauteed with sausage and onion. YUM!!!

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      I really wanted to throw some sausage on there, too, but since I already used sausage in Day 1′s recipe, I figured I’d try something a little bit different.

  5. Bonnie

    This sounds great! You’re probably going to think I live under a rock…but I’ve never thought or heard of using goats cheese for pizza. It sounds incredible!

    PS: I’m a fan of any German knife…the craftsmanship is pure perfection.

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      You haven’t lived til you’ve had goat cheese on your pizza! Let me know what you think of it, if you try it! (And I’m with you–German knives are superb!)

  6. Jessie

    Love naan, love cheese, love peppers… Will have to try this!

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      Let me know what you think! The bonus here was that I didn’t have sauce dripping off the naan and all over the bottom of my oven! Ha!

  7. J Timothy Quirk

    Happy Pepper party to Poet in the pantry! (That’s a lot of alliteration!)

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      Now say that 5 times fast! ;)

  8. Jen @JuanitasCocina

    From the naan to the goat cheese to the peppers to the onions…I am innnnn love!

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      And it’s just so darn easy, too!

  9. Jayne

    Onions, peppers and goat cheese, I’m in heaven!!!

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      I am a huge fan of onions and goat cheese (in fact, somewhere in the archives, there’s a recipe for a focaccia with caramelized onions and goat cheese!). :)

  10. three feathers

    what a fabulous idea, using naan as a pizza crust…..pizza is on the menu for next week, i will try this, see what the clan thinks; thanks for the great idea! as many ways i use bells in just about everything i cook, my favorite is just good ol’ comfort-food stuffed peppers ;0)

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      Let me know how it goes! Naan has been my little secret for a couple of years now. So many wonderful ways to use it!
