Why Should You Try This Butter Chicken Pizza

  • Fast. Enjoy a twist on your favorite dish in under 30 minutes.
  • Easy. Use leftover Butter Chicken sauce and prebaked naan. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
  • Delicious. Finally, a way to repurpose that tasty sauce that’s more exciting than eating it over rice.
  • Authentic (ish). Delicious Indian flavors with a twist.

Ever wondered how to use up that extra sauce you have from making your favorite Butter Chicken recipe? Although I’ve provided lots of ideas in the FAQs and in my best-selling cookbook Indian Instant Pot Cookbook on how to use it up, you can always use another excuse to make it again.

But the other day, Jen who has a wonderful “how to fail at cooking but also sometimes succeed blog” told me about a place near her house that did Butter Chicken Pizza—and I got way too excited about it.

How To Make Butter Chicken Pizza In The Instant Pot Gem

This is so simple, I can’t believe I’m making a recipe for it, but it’s more of a template or a form of inspiration. Since it took me a couple of tries to perfect the process, here’s how to make the perfect Butter Chicken Pizza:

  1. Press BAKE, set the temperature to 400F, and allow your Gem to preheat.
  2. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit inside the Gem. You will use this as a sling to get the pizza in and out. Set this paper aside for now.
  3. While it heats, start assembling your pizzas.
  4. Mix the sriracha sauce into the Butter Chicken sauce.
  5. Lay the frozen naans on your cutting board. (I tried it with the brown side up and brown side down, it makes no difference.)
  6. Spread toppings in this order: Sauce, a little mozzarella, chicken, onions, peppers, feta, rest of the mozzarella, and finally, cilantro.
  7. Place the two naans on the parchment paper and place them carefully into the hot Gem.
  8. Set the timer for 15 minutes and allow them to cook. When the cheese has melted, they are ready to pull out and enjoy!

How To Make Butter Chicken And Naan In The Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to 400F.
  2. While it heats, start assembling your pizzas.
  3. Mix the sriracha sauce into the butter chicken sauce.
  4. Lay the frozen naans on your cutting board. (I tried it with the brown side up and brown side down, it makes no difference.)
  5. Spread toppings in this order: Sauce, a little mozzarella, chicken, onions, peppers, feta, rest of the mozzarella, and finally, cilantro.
  6. Place the two naans on a baking pan or preheated pizza stone, and place into the oven.
  7. Set the timer for 10 minutes and allow them to cook. If you like, you can broil for 2-3 minutes for a crisper cheese finish. When the cheese has melted, they are ready to pull out and enjoy!

Tips And Tricks For Making The Best Butter Chicken Pizza

I’m going to be honest, even with such a simple recipe, I had to make it twice because my first version was good but not excellent. The second time around I changed a few things.

  • I moved away from refrigerated pizza dough and used Trader Joe’s ready-made frozen naans. I tried both the plain and the garlic naan, and the garlic one was so much better.
  • I added a little Sriracha to the Butter Chicken sauce. Honestly, that made a huge difference. Previously it was good—but it wasn’t dynamite. This one was dynamite—at leask,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,t according to Roger (and he’s my go-to taste tester).
  • I made it in my Instant Pot Gem the first time but switched to the oven for my second try. Both work well, the only difference is that in the oven you can broil the topping for the last few minutes, which you can’t in the GEM. Truthfully, they tasted equally good to me.
  • Want to make it a low carb pizza? Use this almond flour pizza crust instead of naan.

What Should You Serve With Butter Chicken Pizza?

The beautiful thing about this Butter Chicken Flatbread is that it is a delicious fusion between several different types of cuisine, so while you may be tempted to serve other Indian dishes or sauces with it, the options are really unlimited.

Here are a few ideas if you’re looking for a way to kick up your Butter Chicken Pizza:

  • Another thing that will elevate this Butter Chicken Pizza, is the addition of a few dollops of this green chutney to the sauce.
  • Instant Pot Rice would make a great bed to serve this pizza on. Catch all of the drips of the delicious sauce with some perfectly made rice.
  • Indian Cabbage with Peas and Carrots will cut through the richness of the Butter Chicken sauce with a nice refreshing flavor and a great way to sneak in some extra veggies
