BBQ Chicken, Asparagus, and Apple Naan Pizzas

This has to be my new favorite pizza flavor combo ever. EVER.

BBQ Chicken, Asparagus, and Apple Naan Pizzas

I’m a super big fan of fruit on pizza, just ask my suspicious-of-anything-fruity-on-pizza boyfriend – I’m always tormenting him by begging to get pineapple on my half.

And the use of naan as a crust? Not to toot my own horn, but that was genius. No pre-baking necessary, and it results in this soft and chewy crust. Everything you love about naan, now in a pizza. Continue reading

So. Ree-COAT-a! Before this pizza I had never had an experience with ricotta. I’d heard of it of course, but I had never been brave enough to order a dish with ricotta in it.
