Preparation

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

To make pizza sauce, in a small bowl combine mascarpone cheese, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper and mix well. Set aside.

Marinate shrimp by placing in a medium size bowl and tossing with red onion, cilantro, lemon juice, garlic, chili powder, cumin and 1/4 cup olive oil. Place in refrigerator for 20 minutes.

To prepare pizzas, place Naan breads on two cookie sheets or pizza pans. Spread each evenly with pizza sauce. Top each with sliced leeks. Place on upper rack of oven.

Bake pizzas for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

While pizza is baking, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Drain marinade off of shrimp and sauté quickly until just pink.

Once pizza is out of the oven, top with shrimp, tomato and basil. Cut each Naan in half or thirds.
