Tandoori Chicken Pizza on Naan

I usually go to the grocery store in the mornings, but the other night I decided to go instead.  I was so happy that I did because they had some great end of the day deals. They had discounted organic boneless chicken tenders 80%  off because the sell by date was that day.  I quickly snapped up several packages (my Mother did not raise a fool) and grinned like a Cheshire cat all the way home.  Since they had to be used quickly, I marinated all the chicken in Greek yogurt and spices for some fun Indian style dishes.  This is my first experiment...Tandoori Chicken Pizza on Naan.  I had some frozen packaged naan bread in my freezer so this was a fast and easy pizza.  My husband loved it. My kids loved it.  I loved it.  I sure hope I get more chicken deals because I already want to make this pizza again.

For the pizza:
4  prepared large Naan
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup sliced red onion

Chicken and marinade:
2 lbs of chicken cut into small pieces
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1 Tbs Garam Masala Powder
1 Tbs paprika
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
2-3 cloves garlic grated
salt and black pepper

1 cup canned diced tomatoes for more chunky sauce
8oz can of tomato sauce for a smoother sauce
1 heaping Tbs sweet mango chutney (like Major Grey's or Patak's)
1-2 clovers garlic grated
salt and black pepper to taste

 Marinate meat with yogurt and spices for 1-4 hours.  If you marinate it for only 1 hour keep it on the counter.  If you marinate it longer, put it in the fridge, but bring it to room temperature (sit out on counter about 30-45 minutes) before cooking.

In a large nonstick skillet heat 2 Tbs canola oil until it really hot then add the marinated chicken.  Saute for 5-7 minutes until chicken is cooked.


 Drain the chicken out of pan without any of the cooking liquid and reserve until later.   Add the tomato sauce or dice tomatoes  chutney and garlic to pan (with the cooking liquid) and cook for 10-12 minutes until sauce thickens.  Season with salt and pepper.  Top pizza with a light layer of sauce.  I used the diced tomatoes so my pizza had chunky tomatoes too.

Next top pizza with mozzarella cheese. Then top with cooked tandoori chicken and sliced onions. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top. Bake in a 450 degree oven on a pizza stone or cookie sheet until crust is crispy and cheese is melted. Serve hot. Enjoy.

    1. I baked mine in a small toaster oven so it took about 10-15 minutes. In a full size oven it may take less time.

  25. So happy to find this. We buy a pizza from Extreme Pizza in Idaho that is called Spice Route. Nearly identical in appearance. Hoping yours tastes just like theirs - SO good. It's spicy and delicious. The apparent differences are, they use a bit of green pepper, top theirs with fresh cilantro when it comes out of the oven and they serve it with a side of caramelized onion chutney. I am a carnivore, but have been trying to do more plant-based meals when I can. The last time I visited Extreme Pizza, they made mine with Alpha brand grilled fake chicken strips that had been marinated. Oh my... I could not tell it was fake chicken and it was divine. Guess I'm ordering out tonight:) However, I will be getting the ingredients to try your method. Can't wait. Thank you.

  26. I read the above article and got some knowledge from your article which is about christmas party in melbourne for us .It's actually great and useful data for us. Thanks for sharing it.
