A new post which will make all Pizza lovers very happy, as this is a homemade,Wheat Garlic Naan Pizza with very juicy Grilled and shredded  Chicken. Just go ahead and try it,you will love it.

I was holding back my pizza cravings,as I wanted to avoid all butter ,flour and cheese that go in a restaurant /take out Pizza,so finally I put an end to this misery by making this  homemade deliciousness of naan pizza.Pizza turned out so delicious that I made the it again next day with leftover chicken.

The best part of this recipe unlike many regular pizza recipe's is that you do not need All Purpose Flour and Butter.Although since pizza should have cheese,so can't do away with that but you can always use in moderation.

To marinate chicken,wash and dry the chicken pieces. Here I have used chicken leg/thigh pieces,bone-in. Apply the yogurt,spice powders and green paste to this chicken with salt and some orange food color(optional). Next you have to grill them by heating a grilling plate or using oven/griller.

While the chicken is grilling,you make the dough for Naan. Here i have used whole wheat flour,add all the ingredients mentioned and make a soft dough.
To make naan,pinch a dough ball(as per the size of naan you prefer),roll it into a oval shape.Make sure its neither too thick (this will make it chewy) and nor too thin(this will not hold the veggies and chicken).
After adding all the things to make pizza,just bake it for 10-12 mins or till done.
I had shared another recipe of Mint Garlic Naan(with yeast) check the recipe too.
