This vegetarian truffled mushroom naan pizza is super easy, a little fancy, and tastes way better than you’d expect from a quick homemade pizza!

This is Salt & Lavender’s first pizza recipe, and it’s a good one! My general thoughts on homemade pizza is that it isn’t really worth it. The dough is often a pain in the butt to make, working with pizza stones can be stressful, and the results for all the effort you put in are often disappointing. There are plenty of good pizza places around here, so I usually order in.

I’ve seen naan pizzas trending for a while, and I wanted to see what the fuss is about. If it’s something Nigella Lawson snacks on, I’m game to try it. I don’t normally buy naans, but I am now convinced they make the best no-fuss pizza base.

I decided on a simple mushroom pizza with Fontina cheese. I love Fontina for pizza because it’s pretty mild, and it melts very quickly. I wanted a special touch, so I decided to add a splash of white truffle oil as well. I was recently out to dinner with a coworker and saw a truffle pizza on the menu. I wasn’t in the mood to pay $25 for an individual pizza that day, though. I guess the idea of that pizza stuck in my head because here we are!

You will like this pizza if:

  • You like mushrooms and onions
  • You like a softer crust (the edges crisp up just a bit)
  • You like pizza. Seriously this naan pizza is fantastic!!

I pre-cook the mushrooms and onions because the pizza only spends about 5 minutes in the oven. It’s a necessary step, but only takes about 10 minutes. The whole thing is ready in less than half an hour.

Once it’s out of the oven, you just drizzle on some truffle oil and sprinkle a little parsley if you wish. So easy and so good!

Truffled Mushroom Naan Pizza

This vegetarian truffled mushroom naan pizza is super easy, a little fancy, and tastes way better than you'd expect from a quick homemade pizza!
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Total: 25 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 2 naans
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil + 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 8 ounces white mushrooms sliced thin
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 dashes Italian seasoning
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1.5 cups grated Fontina cheese
  • Truffle oil to taste
  • Chopped parsley to taste (optional)


  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. Add the onion once the oil is hot, and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, garlic, Italian seasoning, and salt & pepper, then cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until everything has softened, and the liquid is released from the mushrooms.
  • Meanwhile, set your oven's broiler to high and move the rack to the top third of the oven.
  • Place the naans on a non-stick baking sheet. Drizzle a teaspoon of olive oil onto each naan. Top each naan with the mushrooms followed by the cheese.
  • Broil for 5-6 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Drizzle the truffle oil on top of each pizza, and sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately.


  • If you can't find Fontina cheese, you could try substituting Gruyère, Provolone, or Gouda.

  1. Why wouldn’t one expect great taste from a home made pizza? After all, the cook is able to use exactly the toppings and percentages most to his or her taste. I like naan a lot, and not having my own tandoor, am grateful to find it on my supermarket shelves. But there are other premade breads from the supermarket that work well, too–pita, flatbreads of various sorts, and my personal fave, refrigerated whole wheat pizza dough. I did this for lunch yesterday, using prepackaged naan and a small batch of mixed wild mushrooms from my supermarket–and that bottle of truffle oil that has been sitting unused in my pantry–SO good!!! Thanks!

  2. Oh my god! I have never thought to make a combination between these two foods but this sounds so good. I definitely have to try!

  3. This looks delicious Natasha! When I don’t feel like making homemade pizza dough, I always go for some Naan! Love your toppings and the drizzle of truffle oil! Happy weekend!
