This pecan and grape pizza is an out-of-the-box fast and easy dinner recipe, featuring pecans, mozzarella cheese, red onions and fresh thyme. 


  • 1 handful pickled red onions OR 1/4 small red onion
  • 4 naan breads (we used whole wheat)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Pecorino or Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 small bunch black or red grapes (about 15 grapes)
  • 1 handful fresh thyme
  • Kosher salt


  1. If using, at least 1 hour before serving, make the pickled onions. (Alternatively, use fresh red onion; see below.)
  2. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  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 slices 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 layer 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.


Note: You can also use our homemade pizza dough recipe to make this into a full-size pizza. Follow the baking instructions here. Also, this video is helpful when making the dough.
