Bruschetta pizza is a quick 5 minute dinner you can make with a pair of naan breads from the bakery department, a tub of bruschetta topping, and some shredded cheese. Serve it as a light dinner, an easy appetizer flatbread, or as part of a heartier meal.

The bruschetta pizza is served on a white plate. Fresh tomatoes and basil are scattered over the top.

My youngest daughter and I are absolutely in love with fancy bruschetta appetizers when we dine out so I just had to try and make Italian bruschetta al pomodoro at home.

My recipe made a big batch of the tomato topping and I had some leftover in the fridge.

We decided it would taste even better as a quick and easy bruschetta pizza on broiled naan breads with mozzarella cheese.

It was such a delicious and easy busy night dinner, I just had to share!

Why This is the Best Recipe

Pizza is its own food group in our family. We love to make homemade pizzas with our favorite bread maker pizza dough or even a store bought pizza crust.

I think this is the best bruschetta pizza recipe because:

  1. Super Fast: Using a naan bread for the crust and leftover bruschetta topping (or a tub from the store) makes this a 5-minute recipe!
  2. Light and Satisfying: When fresh tomatoes are in season, this is such a delicious light dinner.
  3. Meatless / Vegetarian-Friendly: Need an easy meatless meal? This veggie-heavy pizza is a perfect choice.

Ingredients

The ingredients to make the pizza are on the counter.

This quick and easy dinner is perfect for a busy night because all you need to make it is:

  • Bruschetta Topping: You can use leftover homemade bruschetta or even buy it in a prepared tub at the grocery store or Trader Joe's
  • Prepared Pizza Crusts: I used a package of naan breads from the bakery aisle. You could use a prepared pizza crust or flatbread.
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese: For a quick dinner, bagged mozzarella will work just fine. You could also use an Italian Cheese Blend if you can find it. If you want it to be even more delicious, hand grate fresh mozzarella.
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic Salt

Prep the Pizza Crust

If you're using the smaller naan breads like I did, line them up in a single layer on a baking sheet.

If you're using a prepared pizza crust that doesn't fit on a baking sheet, try a pizza pan or baking stone.

Brush the top with olive oil and a sprinkle of the garlic salt.

Sprinkle the pizza crust with the shredded cheese leaving just a small border around the edge like this:

Baking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375°F with the top oven rack about 6 inches from the broiler element.

Bake the pizzas for 8 minutes to melt the cheese and warm the pizza crust through.

Turn on the broiler and toast the pizzas for 2 minutes or until the cheese has bubbled and the edges have turned golden brown.

Be sure to watch them carefully, they can burn quickly.

The naan breads have just come out of the oven, the shredded cheese has melted over the top and the edges are golden brown and bubbly.

Add the Bruschetta Topping

Finally, sprinkled the prepared bruschetta topping over the surface of the pizza.

I love the combination of cold tomatoes and hot cheesy pizza but if you let the bruschetta pizzas sit for a minute or two, the warmth from the pizza will warm through the tomatoes.

The bruschetta pizza is ready to be served with the fresh tomatoes and basil on top of the prepared naan bread.

Variations

I happened to have leftover bruschetta from making my Italian bruschetta al pomodoro the day before but you could easily substitute my marinated tomatoes recipe in a pinch.

If you like even more cheese on your pizza, you could turn this into a caprese salad pizza and just add fresh diced tomatoes and diced fresh mozzarella with a drizzle of balsamic glaze.

If you want to have the most delicious pizza ever, you could make this with my easy bread maker pizza dough. Just use my homemade pokey sticks recipe but don't cut it into breadsticks form, top with the bruschetta topping and slice.

Serving Suggestions

I served this easy bruschetta pizza as a light dinner for my daughter and I on a busy night before dance class and we both absolutely loved it.

If you want to make this a heartier dinner, you could pair it with a Caesar salad and broiled chicken tenderloins with Italian herb seasoning.

Serve the chicken on the salad or dice it up and add it to the pizza topping.
