Tried & True Tuesday ~ Naan Pizza made with Artichoke Asiago Spread, Baby Spinach and Bruschetta {Wegmans' Recipe}

I was visiting family in Buffalo over Memorial Day weekend...we had the best time with our family!  On our way out of town, I had to stop at my favorite grocery store, one that TOPS all others, WEGMANS!!!  If you've never been, I'm so sorry.  If you have one in your town, LUCKY YOU, you know what I'm talking about!  I was lucky (or unlucky - because now I know what I'm missing) enough to live in Buffalo my first year of marriage, and I have missed that grocery store ever since we moved.  

Whenever I visit Buffalo, I always try to stop at Wegmans and grab a few things.  This time I grabbed ingredients to make a Wegmans' recipe I stumbled upon a while ago - "Grilled Naan Pizza".  This pizza is made with an artichoke asiago dip/spread, baby spinach, bruschetta and mozzarella.  YUM!!!   

For the Wegmans' pizza, I changed a few things.  I used 1 teaspoon of garlic olive oil with the baby spinach and cooked it for a few minutes in a pan before making the pizza.  I also used a bag of shredded mozzarella, approximately 1 cup, instead of using bocconcini.   I opted for cooking it in the oven at 400 degrees F for 12 minutes instead of using the grill.

You can easily use your own Artichoke Asiago Recipe if you don't have a Wegmans near you.  Same goes for the Bruschetta - you can make your own or buy some at your local store.  Click here for a great Artichoke Asiago Dip Recipe from Sweet Sugar Bean.  Click here for a great Bruschetta recipe by Azriel on

This Pizza is to die for!  
It would make a great appetizer too!

Here is Wegmans' "Grilled Naan Pizza" Recipe:

1/4 of 6 oz pkg Food You Feel Good About Baby Spinach (about 2 cups), divided 
1 tsp Wegmans Pure Olive Oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 pkg (2 loaves) Traditional Naan
4 Tbsp Wegmans Artichoke Asiago Dip (Cheese Shop), divided
6 Tbsp Wegmans Bruschetta Topping (Cheese Shop), all extra liquid drained, divided
4 balls bocconcini (Mediterranean Bar), sliced into fifths, divided 

*You'll Need: Grill foil; non-stick cooking spray
Preheat grill on MEDIUM-HIGH

In a bowl, Toss spinach with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Spread each naan with about 2 Tbsp artichoke dip. Next top with 1/2 of the spinach, 1/2 of bruschetta and mozzarella slices.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Next, spray foil with nonstick spray; place on grill. Reduce heat to MEDIUM. Place naan pizzas on foil and close grill.  Cook for about 7-9 min, occasionally checking -be sure to watch for flare-ups.  Cook until toasted, making sure not to burn the pizza.   Cut &  serve while hot.  Enjoy!

You can probably already tell from a few of my recipes, I LOVE NAAN PIZZAS!
