#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.
