Butter chicken pizza – How much do you love cheesy pizza? A lot, right? Then why not turn your favorite food into a magical new dish with this clever idea? Top your pizza with butter chicken and plenty of mozzarella and make this your next family favorite!
From my blogging experience, I’ve learned that the fusion of two totally different cuisines can lead to utterly delicious creations. Sometimes I feel that such fusion recipes are a necessity to keep this blogging journey more interesting. So every now and then, I share a delicious fusion recipe that I really love. You know, these kind of recipes – masala pasta, coconut burfi ice cream, Indian tacos, carrot halwa smoothie. If you are a fan of modern Indian fusion cuisine, these are a must-try.
Although I love classic Indian food, this modern version is my favorite right now. And this butter chicken pizza is one of those recipes. An ultimate combo of classic Italian and classic Indian. This pizza is a killer. Full of flavor and loaded with my favorite toppings. Think pizza topped with your favorite curry, butter chicken. And of course, cheese. Just talking to you about this pizza is making me drool!
Most often, when I make butter chicken, I also roll out naan or flatbreads to go with it. In this recipe, both these flavors are coming together to make one fabulous pizza, just like a one pot meal. Sounds interesting and so perfect for weeknights, right?
Ok, let’s talk about this pizza base. It’s actually an improvised version of my basic pizza base recipe. Or you could call it a naan pizza. I’ve added a few ingredients so it’ll taste like naan. The entire process of making this base is in the video. So don’t forget to check it out!
Next, the butter chicken. After making the curry, take out all the chicken and shred them into little pieces. Then simmer the sauce to make it thick. Keep in mind- we are looking for a consistency similar to pizza sauce.
Now spread the base with the sauce from the curry. Yes, this is our pizza sauce in this butter chicken pizza. Then top with shredded chicken and this goes straight into the oven. Finally, when it comes out of the oven, top with red onions and mint leaves.
If you are a pizza lover, get a pizza stone to make perfectly crisp pizza. I used a pizza stone to bake this pizza. A pizza pan will also do the job, but a stone is always the best option.
Trust me, this butter chicken pizza is going to rock your Friday night pizza dinner. Awesomeness in every slice!
