Freshly baked Chicken Tikka Masala Pizza

I can’t stop my cravings for Indian food lately! Luckily you can turn anything into a pizza, so why not turn a traditional Indian dish into one? This pizza is amazing! It looks like your average pizza, but the taste is different and delicious. My sister took this pizza to work with her and all the ladies in the break room were asking what in the world she was eating. They could smell that it was tasty and it was driving them crazy not knowing what it was. She had to tell them all about how she lives with her sister who has this food blog. They were jealous and volunteered to my tasters anytime. Surprise your family with the flavors of India on a pizza and they’ll catch their own craving!


1 boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ginger

1 tablespoon butter
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garam masala
4 oz canned tomato sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

2 medium-sized pizza crusts, uncooked
About 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 onion, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


1. In a small bowl combine the chicken, yogurt, lemon juice, cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, salt, and ginger. Stir to coat. Heat a heavy skillet to medium-high heat. Add in the chicken breast and cook just until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes (actual cooking time will depend on the size and thickness of your chicken). Set aside.

2. Make the sauce by melting the butter in a small saucepan. Add in the cumin, paprika, and garam masala. Let it toast for 1-2 minutes. Add in the tomato sauce and salt and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and add in the heavy whipping cream.

3. Spread the sauce over the prepared pizza crusts. Top with mozzarella cheese. Top with cooked chicken and diced onion. Cook in a 500 degree oven on a pizza stone until cheese is bubbly and browning. Garnish with cilantro before serving.
