BBQ Salmon Pizza on Naan
Here’s a fail proof recipe to satisfy your taste buds after a nice workout or long day. BBQ Salmon Pizza is rich in protein, has complex carbohydrates and healthy fats.
You’ll need only 20 minutes for this baked salmon pizza recipe. It’s a very simple prep, and easy to customize to your tastes.
Ingredients you will need for one pizza are salmon filet, wheat naan bread, low sodium BBQ sauce mixed with spicy chili sauce, reduced fat mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, red onions, bell peppers.
Season salmon with paprika, sea salt, pepper, Mrs. Dash chipotle seasoning and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. Make sure the salmon filet has no bones. Place the salmon on non-stick aluminum foil and bake in a preheated oven at 405F for about 8 minutes.
When the salmon is done, take it out of the oven and set aside to cool, so you can easily flake it with a fork.
Mix the BBQ sauce with chili sauce in the relationship you want, depending on whether you like it more or less hot. If you are not a fan of hot at all, spread only BBQ sauce on the naan bread. Add mushrooms, onion, bell peppers and salmon on the top. Grate the mozzarella cheese and bake until the cheese has melted.
After 10 minutes it should be over. Serve and enjoy immediately while still warm.
You can also change this recipe, and remove or add the ingredients you prefer. Instead of baked salmon, you can use smoked salmon, any seasonal vegetables, such as tomatoes, spinach or other. You can use pizza crusts, flat bread or naan like me. I liked this combination from the recipe the most.
