Pesto Naan Pizza With Chicken and Red Onion

20 06 2012

This pizza is so good and so simple! It comes together, dare I say it, in a ‘slice’ of time 😉

Pesto Naan Pizza With Chicken and Red Onion

The following serves 2:

  • 2 Naan flatbread (I like tandoori garlic)
  • Cooked chicken, diced
  • Half a small red onion, sliced
  • Basil pesto
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 400.

Use whatever chicken you have on hand (breast, thigh, rotisserie, etc). If it’s not already cooked, dice it up, season with salt, pepper and paprika and saute it with a little olive oil over medium heat for a few minutes until the juices run clear.

Spread pesto on each naan pizza, to the edges. Top with a few dollops of ricotta cheese, diced cooked chicken and the sliced red onion. Next add mozzarella cheese. Use as much or little of any of these ingredients as you like.

Bake on a pizza stone for 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese melts and the crust is golden. Let rest for a minute or so before serving.

I like to finish this pizza with some crisp romaine or arugula tossed with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
