Top oven-fired naan with slow-simmered tomato sauce, Whole Foods Market house-made sausage, fresh mozzarella and roasted red peppers for a dinner that can't be beat.
  • Pizza Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • pinch crushed red chile flakes
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed or puréed San Marzano tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • For the Pizza
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 4 pieces original, whole wheat or garlic 365 Everyday Value® Tandoori Naan Bread
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red chile flakes
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 1/2 pound cooked and crumbled Italian Sausage, hot or mild
  • 2 roasted red peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
For the pizza sauce, in a medium nonreactive saucepan, heat oil, garlic and hot pepper flakes over very low heat, allowing the flavors to infuse the oil, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano and salt. Cover and simmer 30 to 45 minutes, until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. Refrigerate sauce and use within five days or freeze for up to three months.

For the pizza, preheat the oven to 450°F or 500°F. If using a pizza stone, place on oven rack while preheating.

Spread 1/4 cup of pizza sauce over each piece of naan. Sprinkle with garlic and red pepper flakes. Break apart cheese slices and arrange over each pizza. Sprinkle with sausage and arrange red pepper slices over each pizza.

Transfer to a baking sheet (if using a pizza stone, bake directly on the preheated stone). Bake until crust is crisp and cheese is bubbly, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove pizzas and sprinkle with oregano before slicing and serving.
