Before starting, preheat the oven to 450 and wash and dry all produce. In Step 4, use this heat guide to determine what spice level you prefer: 1/4 tsp mild, 1/2 tsp medium and 1 tsp Arrange naan over two baking sheets. Toast in the middle and top of the oven, until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. (NOTE: Keep an eye on the naan so that it doesn't burn!) Set aside.


While naan toasts, halve tomatoes. Thinly slice cucumber into rounds. Core, then thinly slice peppers. Tear bocconcini into bite size pieces. Season with salt. Whisk together vinegar, 2 tsp pesto and 1 tbsp oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then peppers. Cook, stirring often, until tender, 3-4 min.


Spread remaining pesto over each toasted naan, then top with peppers and bocconcini. Sprinkle 1/4 tsp chili flakes between the pizzas. (TIP: Reference Heat Guide.) Toast assembled pizzas in the middle and top of the oven, until cheese melts, 5-6 min.


Add spring mix, cucumbers and tomatoes to the dressing and toss to coat. Divide pizzas and salad between plates.
