I have convinced myself that I am an expert in grilled pizza, and no one in my family is contesting that claim. The reason being that they would not get any more grilled pizza. But this is an expertise that I can only substantiate during the warmer months. Otherwise my pizza output — and therefore my bragging rights — dwindle markedly.

And yet. And yet. What’s this? A fluffy packaged naan bread? Oh, and look! I have an oven. One plus one equals pizza. Okay, with a handful of other ingredients, but seriously, what a joy, what fun, to make a semi-homemade pizza any night of the week with whatever you have lying around.

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, finely shredded
