Tikka Masala Pizza


Naan your average pizza! A classic Indian dish meets pizza in this fun and delicious twist thanks to a rich and creamy vegan Masala sauce slathered on the dough. You can swap out the usual pizza dough for naan or cauliflower crust for an even more authentic flavor pairing and swap out the shredded chicken for shredded jackfruit or tofu to make this vegan. Any way you slice it this pizza will make you holla for masala!

Want to make this pizza even easier to throw together? Use leftovers from my Tikka Masala Chili in place of the sauce and veggies to top this pizza! Get the Tikka Masala Chili recipe here!
