Chicken Pesto Naan Pizzas

These Chicken Pesto Naan Pizzas are a perfect use of any leftover fresh made pesto from my Walnut Pesto Burrata Toast recipe. I love love love naan bread, especially to use for flatbread pizzas. One of my all time favorite recipes from my blog is my Chicken Caesar Salad Flatbread Pizzas, you MUST try them!

These are perfect for a simple weeknight meal, and are fun to make on the grill on a nice spring or summer day! Super simple to make, even the kiddos can get in the kitchen with you to help with toppings!

They’re topped with basil pesto, chopped chicken, oregano, roasted red bell peppers, feta and mozzarella cheeses. Use any veggies you have on hand! These could also make a fun party appetizer finger food, and they’re just as good served at room temperature. Simple to make, delicious to eat! Make them vegetarian without the chicken, or try a different protein of your choosing. Just another reason why I love pizza recipes, you can really do whatever you want!
