Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? I'm heading back to school today after a glorious Christmas break. While I'm not relishing waking up early again, I am always glad to settle back into more of a routine. And since one of my intentions for 2014 is to become more organized, I kinda need to be busier to put myself to the test. :)
Another goal I have for this year is to try to plan our meals for the week. Do you do this? I never have, but rumor has it that it saves time and money, so I thought I'd give it a go. If you're a meal planner, I'd love to hear any tips or tricks you have!!
One of my go-to meals that will definitely show up in our planning is naan pizzas! I love them because they take no time at all to make (it's really more assembling than cooking!), you can top them with whatever you want, and most of all because they're super yummy.
Since Miles and I are crazy about Greek flavors, we absolutely loved these! They were fast, fresh, and flavorful... perfect for a weeknight dinner!
Greek Lamb Naan Pizzas
makes 4 pizzas
4 naan breads
1/2 cups tomato puree (like Pomi)
1/2 lb. ground lamb
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, halved
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes, chopped
1 English cucumber, seeded and sliced
1/2 cup crumbled feta
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. If using a pizza stone, place it inside the oven to preheat.
While the oven is preheating, heat a bit of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook lamb until completely done, breaking up the meat as it cooks. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
Lightly brush naan with olive oil. Once the oven is preheated, place the breads on the pizza stone or baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven. Spread about 2 tablespoons tomato puree over each pizza. Divide the lamb, mozzarella, onion, olives, and sundried tomatoes evenly over each pizza. Return to the oven and bake for 10 more minutes, until cheese is bubbly.
Remove pizzas from the oven and top with cucumbers and feta. Enjoy!
