These easy and delicious pizzas make a great appetizer or dinner. For dinner serve with a simple salad of mixed greens, cucumber, red onion & shredded carrots with a rice wine vinegar and olive oil dressing! xo

1/3C Brown Sugar
3 T Ginger, Chopped (Can be purchased in a tube in the herb section of the market)

Pizza

6 Pieces Taandori Garlic Naan (Trader Joe's) or your fave Naan
1/2 lb Grilled Chicken Breasts, Chopped and Tossed in 1/4 C of Peanut Sauce (purchased is fine)

Can be made a day ahead and baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. You can also sprinkle with red p epper flakes! I love those red pepper flakes! Cut into triangles and place on a bed of the remaining shredded carrots to serve.

  1. Yum, Deb! Thanks for this post. Even the 4-yr old loved it. All the shopping can be done at TJ's, too, which is always a bonus. :)
