Naan has a lot to love. This East Indian yeasted flatbread is traditionally baked in a tandoor oven. Luckily for home cooks, it's widely available at supermarkets. Yes, naan is divine warmed on its own or brushed with garlic butter and sprinkled with herbs, but it also makes the perfect canvas for a quick dinner. Creamy lemon-spiked ricotta, peppery arugula, crunchy pistachios, and grilled asparagus make a delicious combination of toppings. The special finishing touch is a generous drizzle of hot honey. To make your own hot honey, simply whisk together equal parts honey and sriracha in a bowl.


  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed

  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for serving

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided

  • 4 naan flatbreads (such as Stonefire)

  • 1 ⅓ cup part-skim ricotta cheese

  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest (from 1 lemon)

  • 1 cup baby arugula

  • 2 tablespoons hot honey

  • ¼ cup roasted, salted pistachios, chopped


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high (400°F to 450°F). Toss asparagus with 1/2 tablespoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Grill asparagus, uncovered, turning often, until lightly charred, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let cool slightly. Cut into 2-inch pieces.

  2. Brush naan on both sides with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Grill naan, uncovered, until lightly charred, about 1 minute per side.

  3. Stir together ricotta, lemon zest, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Spread each naan with 1/3 cup ricotta mixture, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with asparagus and arugula. Drizzle with oil and hot honey; sprinkle with pistachios.
