Well, hello, hello!

Have you missed me? Please be honest. I know you have.

I am glad you’ve liked my first round-up ever. Certainly, I am positive you’ll like this Sweet Potato Naan Pizza too.

I will keep it short today (Because I know you cannot wait to run into the kitchen to make this delicious Sweet Potato Naan Pizza). In my last post of 2017, I mention there would be some news soon.

Are you ready?

I have moved! I mean not from one place to a new one witing one city. Now I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Some of you might recall that Andrey has been living and studying there for over a year and that we have been thinking of my relocating as well. This happened!

It’s been a week since we got to Halifax :)

Sweet Potato Naan Pizza

With some things gradually getting settled, it’s time to talk about some scrumptious food like this Sweet Potato Naan Pizza.

Last year I shared some pizza ideas based on naan bread, and I am going to continue this trend! However, for the record, this version happened before Christmas when I was still living in Ontario.

This naan pizza is loaded with many hearty ingredients such as sweet potatoes, caramelized onions, cream cheese, cheddar, blue cheese, pine nuts, sage, and smoked paprika. Sounds good, isn’t it?

Result? A delicious, aromatic, gooey, and hearty pizza which is ready in just 20 minutes! That’s the perfect meal for some chilly winter nights.

  1. Well I definitely missed you, Ben! ;) And you just KNOW I am loving this naan pizza! Every time I see a new one from you I blush a little, because I do know it is I who introduced you to how FABULOUS naan pizza is! This version is just AMAZING, buddy! I’ll take 2 please! Cheers!

  2. OK I’m trying this again – for some reason my comments and your site do not like each other…
    But – AAH! Congrats on the move. Halifax is such an awesome place to move to – I have always wanted to live on the coast! Now I need a reason to come visit :)
    We’re on the same page when it comes to caramelized onions and pizza too – yay!
    Hooray for an exciting new chapter in your life!!

  3. Wow, you moved!? That’s awesome, Ben. I know Andrey will appreciate having you (and all of your yummy creations) around more often now. But what about your coyote friend back home? And what about your job? Did you find a new job in Halifax? I think the first order of business (once you finish unpacking) is to go find a dark trail through some lonely woods. Take some of this delicious naan pizza with you. And then try to make a new coyote friend. :-) Seriously, though, I love the flavors on this pizza. This sounds delicious!!

  4. I’ve never thought about having sweet potato on a pizza before Ben, but you know, thinking about it more, I can see (and my salivating mouth tells me) that it would go pretty well with the rest of the combination of ingredients there. Especially the caramelized onions! Yum, Another outstanding Naan pizza recipe, thank you! Oh, and congratulations on the move. Hope you are all unpacked now!

  5. Ben – another naan pizza winner! I love the idea of sweet potatoes with that sage and the balsamic vinegar – my mouth is watering. An really, just in time, I’m making naan pizzas tonight – you’ve successfully added the term to our roundup of regular dinners! Thanks for the recipe!

  6. I’ve missed you! Congratulations on the move. That’s so exciting! If you need help unpacking let me know; I can be bribed with this delicious pizza :). You know my first question is: what is the coyote situation in Nova Scotia? Will you be traipsing down any coyote-ridden trails in the dark? I’m crossing my fingers that coyotes avoid your area :). Have a great week, Ben!
