How to Heat the Naan

The packaging provides instructions for heating the naan with an oven, grill and microwave.

In general you heat the naan by:

  • Removing it from the packaging.
  • Misting both sides lightly with water or brushing with olive oil.
  • Heating in a 400F oven for 2-3 minutes or wrapping in a paper towel and microwaving for one minute.

Once the naan is heated it becomes soft and tender.  The warmed bread is a great to serve with traditional Indian dishes like Madras Lentils.

How to Make Naan Flatbread Pizza

These large flatbreads are great for making pizzas.

The bread has a “charred and bubbly” side and a plain, flat side. When I make pizza I place the charred side gown and use the flat plain side to hold the toppings.

My favorite pizza is inspired by the chicken panini recipe on the packaging.  I top the flatbread with:

I place the pizza in my Ninja Foodi air fryer and cook it in “Bake” mode at 425F for 8 minutes.

The pizza is absolutely delicious.  My daughter declared that it looks and tastes like an appetizer you would get at a fancy restaurant.

Another aspect that I enjoy about using these flatbreads for pizza is they are small enough that you can personalize the toppings without making a big fuss.  It is no big deal to make four different pizzas so everyone can get exactly what they want!
