Simple Zucchini & Naan Mini Pizza

I absolutely love naan, which is an Indian style flat bread that I often purchase from Wegmans. Typically, I heat it in the oven and serve it with hummus. Recently, I tried something a little different — and I absolutely love how it came out!

I spread a little tomato sauce and added some sliced zucchini for a healthy mini pizza that came together in under 20 minutes. I thought it was delicious, and my husband loved it! He actually asked me, “Can we have this again tomorrow night?” Not bad feedback for such an easy meal!

Ingredients (to serve four)

  • 4 naan flatbreads
  • 15 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 zucchini
  • Grated parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F
  2. Lay flatbreads on a flat baking sheet. Spread a layer of tomato sauce on each bread.
  3. Slice zucchini lengthwise into thin circles and place on top of the pizza. I found that each flatbread needs about 1/4 of the zucchini.
  4. Grate a small amount of parmesan cheese on top (I just eyeballed this). Lightly sprinkle salt, pepper, and optional garlic powder to taste.
  5. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and zucchini slices are cooked through.
  6. Remove from oven and enjoy!

Things I Didn’t Know About Motherhood

Motherhood is an experience that is both challenging and rewarding. Despite having many friends who became mothers before me, and despite listening to them tell me about their experiences, there was absolutely nothing that could have prepared me for the reality of motherhood. There were parts that were way more difficult than I anticipated, but there are also parts that are so much better than I could ever have imagined.

On Weight Gain and Body Acceptance

Over the past few years, I’ve put on a lot of weight. It actually started with a medication that I had to take for bipolar disorder. One of the side effects was that I put on a few pounds. But it wasn’t until recently, when I got pregnant with my first child, that the weight really started to pile on. During my pregnancy, I was a bit overwhelmed at the rate at which I was gaining weight, and it was hard to prevent it from happening. I was constantly hungry, and as my pregnancy progressed, I replaced going to the gym with more leisurely walks because I was constantly winded and tired from my workouts.
