- 2 large onions, halved and sliced
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided

- 3 cups shredded lettuce
- 1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
- 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped

Reviews for Salad-Topped Flatbread Pizzas
"I used Quorn Meatless Sausage Links, diced; and Balsamic Vinaigrette. It was delicious, light, and made the perfect lunch. Thanks, Julie, for sharing this recipe."
"This recipe was a big hit with the family. The naan bread was a nice substitute for pizza crust and the salady nature of the ingredients made it feel very healthy. Will definitely make this again."
"This was really good! Naan makes perfectly sized individual pizzas. I used light balsamic vinaigrette because I already had it. My husband loved these as well. I will definitely be making again!"
