Bored of boring pizza bases? Sure you are! This naan bread pizza is a great way to mix up your pizza game with minimal effort, and even better, there’s a video to go with this recipe so you can really see how easy it is to make!
Naan bread is a great alternative to your standard dough pizza bases, they come out of the oven crispy and golden and are the perfect vehicle for all of those gorgeous toppings. I decided to run with Indian flavours for the topping, and Chicken Tandoori felt like the perfect addition to my naan bread pizza. The chicken is marinated in yogurt and spices, to really get those beautiful flavours into every bite.
This naan bread pizza is a great alternative to your usual takeaway, and I encourage you to experiment with more flavour combinations. Why not check out my White Pizza with Pancetta, Cambozola and Pear for inspiration!
