Meatball Flatbread

As amazing as this flatbread is, you would never guess how unbelievably easy it is to make. And hiding veggies in the sauce is a clever trick, especially if you have kids. For a crunchy crust, bake the naan in the oven until slightly crispy on top before adding the tomato sauce. —Kimberly Berg, North Street, Michigan

    This dish was very popular with our 20-something children. We made our own meatballs out of ground chicken. This is so simple to put together and tastes great - a terrific relaxed weekend meal!

    Delicious! I used my marinara sauce that's loaded with veggies and added some tomato paste to thicken. Simple and quick and this recipe went camping with us. Will be making again. VFE

    Such a fun new twist on pizza night! Most of the ingredients are shortcuts in themselves, but together they makes this recipe easy to pull together. This will easily become a family favorite.

    So easy and tasty. Uses pantry staple items so quick to pull together! I always have a jar of pizza sauce, so next time will doctor that up to use!

    So easy, so delicious, and super kid friendly. My grocery store was out of naan so I substituted whole wheat pita bread and it worked perfectly.

    Absolutely delicious and oh so easy. I didn't have any fresh basil, so I just added some Italian Seasoning to the sauce mixture. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. A very hearty meal, too!
