Indian Pizza

Hi Friends!

As promised, I have a new recipe for you. Indian Pizza.

Basically, it’s awesome. For the crust, I used my favorite Trader Joe’s frozen naan. For the sauce, I used some leftover Curried Sweet Potato Soup. For the recipe I tried to give you quantities to make a much smaller amount of soup! For the toppings, I used curried roasted vegetables, lentils, shrimp and goat cheese. Sound good?

PS. If you’re a meat eater, tandoori chicken would be AWESOME on this instead of shrimp.

  1. I seriously SERIOUSLY might go to the store this afternoon and get the ingredients for this. Indian pizza sounds RIGHT up my alley. Okay, actually.. Anything with curry is my weakness in life! ;)

    Pinning because there is seriously a 99.5% chance I’m going to attempt making this for dinner. I think my family would love it. Well, maybe not my dad… but I’ll make him a personal normal pizza ;)

  2. Yum! I love Indian foods. I’ve been making a similar sweet potato “sauce” but never thought to use leeks. Great flavor pairing – will have to try this out!

  8. I have a love/hate relationship with Indian food. I love Indian Spice and will incorporate them into my cooking at home but the only time I’ve ever loved Indian food was leftover and when I was intoxicated :)

  9. This is such a great idea!! Looks delicious :)

  10. LOVE naan. This could get dangerous REALLY quickly for me. Oh my…spread this with some hummus for hummus pizza and I’m in love.

  11. I was so curious about this recipe! I’ve actually only gone out for Indian food once but I did love it!! I love all the spicy vegetables!

  12. When we finally go to the grocery store this month (when I get back this weekend), I’m getting stuff to make this. Mark and I always make 2 separate pizzas, but I think we could go with one with this one. :)

  13. Normally I am plain and simple with my pizza, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, olive oil and that’s that, but this looks to die for!
    Indian is my favorite ethnic cuisine. There is no end to the different flavors, spices, and dishes to try. I have always wanted to make pizza with naan, looks like it’s now’s the time, thanks for the recipe!

  21. Oh my gosh, Lindsay! This look INCREDIBLE! I already pinned it! Trader Joe’s naan is the best, but wow, I can’t wait to make that sauce! :D

    I like Indian food, but I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to spice so I actually prefer to make my dishes at home.

  30. I love Indian food! And those Trader Joe’s naan–what a creative way to use them, I love this! And sweet potatoes. And curry. Definitely keep this in mind for those nights I was something with lots of flavor–but don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking :D Plus I’m hopeless at making real pizza crust, so I love any “cheater” version. Naan is definitely a “must-order” if I get Indian food–as is Chana Palak. Great sauce with lots of spinach and chickpeas. And now I really want to get Indian takeout on my way home for dinner ;D

  31. I LOVE Indian food in general but especially naan bread! The TJ’s one is SO GOOD. This looks delicious!
