Tomato Garlic Chicken Naan Pizza

One of my dear blogger friends who runs the Food Fashion Party blog, just released a cookbook that is full of incredible India dishes with an American twist. It’s called Masala and Meatballs…so clever!

I tried the tomato garlic chicken naan pizza from the cookbook because her photo was so drool worthy! I attempted to do it some justice and although my photos don’t rival hers, the taste probably comes super close…it was unbelievably amazing! One thing you can say about Indian dishes is that they never disappoint in the flavor department! Her tomato garlic chicken naan pizza recipe called for 10 garlic cloves just to make the sauce and at first I thought whoa!! But I trusted it and it was impeccable. I made half the sauce serving for only 2 naans. I used garlic, tomatoes and onions, then cooked it with chicken, tons of spices and cilantro to look like this.
