Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 handful pickled onions (1/2 cup) or 1/4 small red onion
  • 1 small bunch (about 15) black or red grapes
  • 4 naan breads
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 teaspoons Pecorino or Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

For the Pickled Onions

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

Preparation

  • 1 If using, at least one hour before serving, make the pickled onions. (Alternatively, use fresh red onion; see below).
  • 2 Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • 3 Roughly break apart the pecans with your hands. Place them in a small skillet, then heat over low heat for 2 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until fragrant and lightly toasted. Remove from the heat.
  • 4 Slice the grapes in half.
  • 5 If using red onion, thinly slice the red onion. If desired, rinse the sliced under cold water and then drain (this helps to remove some of the bite).
  • 6 Place naan directly on the oven grate and pre-bake 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove the naan from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  • 7 Top each naan with about 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, a thin grating of Pecorino cheese, toasted pecans, grapes, and Pickled Onions. Garnish with thyme leaves (pull off leaves and tender stems over the pizza) and a sprinkle of kosher salt. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes until the cheese melts.

Pickled Onions:

  • 1 Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together. Let sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour, more if possible. Cover and store in the refrigerator. Can be made ahead up to 2 weeks. Drain onions before using.
