(optional toppings: grated Parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes)

Lay out both pieces of naan in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
Divide pizza sauce between the two pieces of naan, and use a spoon to spread it over the top of the naan. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the pizza sauce.
Layer the veggies in a rainbow pattern on top of the cheese.
Drizzle or mist each pizza with a bit of olive oil.
Sprinkle each pizza with the Italian seasonings.

3 cloves garlic, pressed; or 1 tsp dry garlic powder
1.5 Tbsp Olive oil

Place back in the oven for another 5 minutes, plus extra 2-3 minutes on broil. Watch the bread closely, if its too dark before 2-3 minutes remove it from the oven immediately.
Meanwhile mix the remaining oil & garlic with the balsamic vinegar, stirring until a smooth emulsion forms.
Once flatbread pizza is baked and the edges are golden in color, remove from the oven, drizzle with however much of the balsamic vinegar mixture you would like, sprinkle with basil leaves, slice and serve and enjoy!
