Garlic Naan Flatbread Pizzas with Mushrooms
  • 4Servings


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4- 1 pound cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced, or mixed mushrooms, such as cremini and stemmed shiitakes, thinly sliced, or maitake (hen-of-the-woods), separated into bite-size pieces
  • 2 large shallots, chopped
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Imagine Vegetarian No-Chicken Broth or mushroom stock
  • 1 bunch Tuscan kale, stemmed and chopped
  • 4 pieces garlic naan
  • 3/4 pound Gouda with cumin, coarsely grated on the large holes of a box grater (If not available, use shredded fontina or mild cheddar tossed with 1/2 tsp. cumin seed.)


In a large skillet, heat the olive oil, two turns of the pan, over medium-high. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until browned, about 8 minutes. Add the shallots, season with salt and pepper and stir until the shallots soften, about 2 minutes. Add the stock, stirring to scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the skillet. Add the kale; stir until wilted, about 2 minutes. Cook, stirring often, until the stock is almost evaporated, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Meanwhile, preheat the broiler and heat a griddle pan or a large skillet over medium-high. Add a sprinkle of water to the pan. Working in two batches, toast the naan until blistered in spots, about 2 minutes per side.

Arrange the naan on a large, rimmed baking sheet; top with the mushroom mixture and cheese. Broil until the cheese is bubbly and browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
