Prepare the vegetables: Heat up the oven to 400F. Rinse and dry all produces. Cut the onion, eggplant, and mushroom in thin slices of about 1/2 cm thick.
Cook the vegetables: Place the onion, eggplant, and mushroom slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment or non stick liner. Drizzle the vegetables with oil (1 tsp, 1/2 tsp) , sprinkle with salt (1/2 tsp, ¼ tsp) and pepper (1/4 tsp, 1/8 tsp). Cook for about 12 minutes in the oven or until the vegetables are cooked through and are starting to become golden.
Prepare the toppings: While the vegetables are cooking, pit the black olives and roughly chop them. Finely chop the thyme.
Cook the pizza: When the vegetables are cooked, place them in a bowl and drizzle them with half of the balsamic dressing. Place the naan bread on the baking sheet. Top each naan bread with tomato sauce, cooked vegetables, and thyme. Cook the pizza in the oven at 400 for about 5 minutes.
Assemble the dressed arugula: In a medium bowl, place the arugula and the other half of the balsamic dressing. Combine to coat the arugula with the dressing.
Garnish and serve: Place the balsamic dressed arugula on top of each pizza, top with shaved parmesan. Serve.
