Pepperoni flatbread pizza using roasted garlic naan bread and topped with pizza sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese, pepperonis and a light coating of parmesan cheese. This traditional flatbread can be drizzled with extra virgin olive oil for an extra Italian flare. This recipe takes regular pizza to a whole new level.
Small flatbread pizzas like this are a great option for weeknight dinners. They are quick, easy and packed with flavor. It is also a great recipe to serve as any easy dinner when hosting, a great meal for birthday parties and is also very kid friendly. A homemade flatbread pizza recipe like this is great because it uses store-bought flatbread and is done in 10-15 minutes from start to finish!
- roasted garlic store-bought naan
- pizza sauce
- mozzarella cheese
- parmesan cheese
See recipe card for quantities.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the naan on a prepared baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Evenly spread the pizza sauce on the pieces of naan. Spread the mozzarella cheese evenly on top of the pizza sauce.
Evenly spread the pepperoni on top of the cheese. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Remove from the oven and grate fresh parmesan cheese on top of the pizza. Cut the pizza and serve.
Hint: use a microplane to grate the parmesan cheese on top of the pizza. This will give a very thin layer of parmesan to add just a little bit of extra cheesy flavor.
- Cheese - use a vegan cheese if you need a dairy free option.
- Flatbread - use a gluten free flatbread or a gluten free naan if a gluten free option is needed.
- Vegetarian - omit the pepperoni for a vegetarian option.
- Flatbread - make a homemade flatbread if you prefer not to go the store-bought route.
There are a few ways you can change up the flavors in this recipe to get a completely different profile.
- Spicy - add red pepper flakes on top to imbue heat into the dish or drizzle with some hot sauce after taking out of the oven.
- Vegetables - add bell peppers, red onion, fresh basil leaves, red peppers or any additional vegetables that may be your favorite toppings.
- Sausage - add Italian sausage in the place of pepperoni for a sausage pizza.
- Spinach and Artichoke - add spinach and artichoke for a fun variation.

Leftovers can be wrapped in tin foil or placed in an air tight container and placed in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
These ingredients do stand up well to freezing for up to 2 months.
Don't be afraid to change up the toppings for some of your favorite pizza toppings. This is your own homemade flatbread pizza and you can change it up however you like. Switching up the toppings will not change the baking time for your flatbread.
You can also use pita bread, flatbread, or even a homemade focaccia as a replacement for naan. You can also use a homemade pizza dough, this will have a slightly different baking temperature and time though depending on the pizza dough.
This recipe makes two servings. Each flatbread is an individual serving size. This is great because if your family has different topping preferences, you can all create your own personal flatbread pizza recipes. Since there are so many different versions, everyone can add their favorite things.
Absolutely! You can cook your air fryer flatbread pizza for 5-10 minutes at 400 degrees. Keep an eye on your flatbread though since it does cook in a different way, you might find that it will cook faster in the air fryer.
