Southwestern Chicken Naan Pizza

I’d be lying if I said that pizza wasn’t one of my top five favorite foods. I mean, I know that pretty much everyone loves it, but in my house pizza is its own food group. Seriously, how many dishes can you eat as an appetizer, breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert?

This Southwestern Chicken Naan Pizza is my go-to for lunch because the size is perfect for one. Okay maybe two, but for me, it’s one.

As much as I love pizza, my husband likes it even more. Shocking, I know. But if we’re ever having a debate on what to eat for dinner, his answer will unequivocally be “Pizza”. For this reason, I’m constantly looking for ways to up my pizza game from one meal to the next.

One of my favorite pizzas of all time is my Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza With Dill Pickle Aioli. If you haven’t tried that you HAVE to check it out. That pizza is made with traditional pizza crust, while this pizza is quickly thrown together on a prepared naan flatbread.

I love making naan pizzas for lunch in particular because the process is SO quick. It’s already cooked so all you have to do is make sure the bottom gets crispy and the cheese gets melted… and you’re done!

You could even use shredded rotisserie chicken if you have that lying around. Then this would take like, 15 minutes — tops. You’re welcome.

When I venture from traditional pizza (rustic is a fave!), I enjoy Olive Cheese Bread (a chopped black/green olive and Monterey Jack cheese spread, slathered over French bread...yum!). I also tried puffed pastry pizza with sautéed mushrooms and onions, goat cheese, and basil (light and crispy).
