Simple Ground Beef Naan Pizza

This is one of those meals that was created more out of necessity and simplicity than anything else.  Well, if you think about it, most meals are, aren't there?  Well, anyway... this was a quick "throw together" meal the night before we left for Nebraska.  I hate not making dinner and eating junk if we don't really have to.. and that night, we didn't necessarily have to.  I didn't want to be spending a lot of time cooking, so I decided on something simple and something that used ingredients I had on hand and needed to use before we left anyway.

Sometimes, things just come together nicely :)

Simple Ground Beef Naan Pizza
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
- Serves 2 -
Printable Recipe 
1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon fennel
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 red pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
2 Naan flatbread
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

In a skillet, over medium heat, add the ground beef.  Cook for 2 minutes.  Add the salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, fennel, oregano and garlic powder.  Stir and cook 1 minute.  Add the red pepper and jalapeno.  Cook until the meat is no longer pink and the vegetables are just starting to soften, about 3 more minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to cool a little.

Meanwhile, preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Brush one side of each naan and place directly over the fire.  Grill about 3 minutes or just until golden.  Carefully remove from grill.  Spread pizza sauce on the grilled side of each naan.  Top with ground beef mixture and cheese.  Place back on grill over direct heat for another 3-4 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown.  Move to indirect heat and continuing grilling until the cheese has fully melted.  Remove from grill and allow to cool.  Cut in half or in quarters.  Enjoy!

When will I finally try pizza on my stove top stone? How much is that doggie in the window? Both unanswerable questions.

I was going to make this but I went to the cupboard to get some of that bread but I had naan. (ha ha ha ha, sorry)

Looks great, Jenn! Have fun in Corn Husker country.
