It’s Friday. You (like me) have cooked all week and most likely don’t want to make anything complicated. When I’m in lazy cooking mood, my go-to recipe is naan pizzas.

As you know, this blog is no stranger to naan pizzas. In a pinch, naan is the perfect vessel for your favorite pizza toppings. The bottom gets nice and crisp (with little to no flop!) and is the perfect thickness, not too thick nor too thin.

In the past, I’ve made pesto, caesar, buffalo chicken and even a lamb margherita. However, today we’re making a bbq chicken version. Because YUM and why not?

To Make These BBQ Chicken Naan Pizzas You Will Need:

  • naan bread – I like the roasted garlic variety, but any will do! You can even make homemade!
  • sweet barbecue sauce
  • shredded cheddar jack cheese – never use pre-shredded cheese because it doesn’t melt as good.
  • chopped cooked chicken – I like thighs, but use what you’ve got.
  • cooked and chopped bacon
  • half a red onion
  • cilantro

Preheat your oven to 400°.

Lightly spray a rimmed baking sheet and lay down two of the naan bread. Spoon desired amount of sweet barbecue sauce over top.

Spread it evenly, leaving roughly a 1/2 inch edge.

Top each pizza with some of the cheese, chopped cooked chicken, bacon, red onion and a little extra cheese. Drizzle with a little extra of the barbecue sauce before slipping the pizzas onto the middle rack of your preheated oven.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edge is golden and crisp. Sprinkle with minced cilantro before slicing and serving.

BBQ Chicken Naan Pizzas

BBQ Chicken Naan Pizzas make dinner easy. Naan is spread with sweet barbecue sauce and topped with chicken, red onion and cheddar jack before baking until golden brown. Serve with minced fresh cilantro.

Prep Time 35 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • olive oil spray
  • 4 pieces of naan bread
  • sweet barbecue sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • 1 cup (give or take) chopped leftover chicken (see notes)
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked until slightly crispy, chopped
  • 1/2 a red onion, sliced vertically
  • chopped fresh cilantro, for serving (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400° and lightly spray 2 rimmed metal baking sheets with olive oil spray.
  2. Place 2 naans per pan and spoon a desired amount of barbecue sauce on top. Spread evenly, leaving a 1/2 border or edge.
  3. Top each one with a little cheese, chicken, bacon and more cheese.
  4. Drizzle with a spoonful or more of the barbecue sauce over top before baking each pan on the middle rack for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cheese has melted and crust is golden.
  5. Sprinkle with minced cilantro before serving.

Notes

I will cook the bacon just until crispy and then transfer it to a paper towel lined plate to drain before chopping. I then add 4 to 6 chicken thighs to the fat in the skillet and cook on both sides until no longer pink. Let rest and then chop.
