So here I was, going about my day, when all of a sudden I learn that it is National Pizza Day! I had no plans of eating pizza today – we stuffed ourselves with pizza during the Super Bowl. Yet I knew Aldo would be disappointed if I mentioned that it was National Pizza Day and we had no pizza plans.

I had to think, and I had to think quickly. Aha! We have leftover Indian food! And we have cheese! Pizza is the perfect way to give my chicken tikka masala a makeover.

This recipe is great because it can be made vegetarian or not, depending on your preference. You can use tikka masala sauce from a jar (vegetarian), or use leftover chicken tikka masala (clearly not vegetarian). I shredded up the cubed chicken from the tikka masala and mixed it in with the sauce before spreading it over the naan. And just like that – the most delicious 20 minute dinner you can have.

Author: Kate


  • 2 large pieces garlic naan (regular naan is OK too)
  • 1 cup tikka masala sauce with or without chicken
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheese of your choice (I used a mixture of cheddar, havarti, and parmesan)
  • Optional garnish: chopped scallions or cilantro leaves


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Place the garlic naans on a large baking tray. For each naan, add half the ingredients in the following order: tikka masala sauce, baby spinach, cheese.
  • Bake at 350F for 12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, the spinach is wilted, and the pizza is heated through. Garnish with scallions and/or cilantro.


This recipe is perfect for using up leftover tikka masala sauce and naan bread! I had bits of chicken in my tikka masala, which I shredded into the sauce before spreading over the pizza. Hello chicken-tikka-masala pizza!

This super fast & easy Indian pizza is amazing dear Kate! We can't find naan here, so we'll change it even more; artisan Greek pittas as the base, and the rest just like you mentioned them:) Thank you for the fantastic idea Kate! Pinned! xoxoxo

I cook Indian food pretty often. In fact, my favorite dish in the world happens to be Indian Chicken Biriyani. Have you ever tried it? Your pizza looks fantastic, Kate! Love the melted cheese and the masala sauce!!!!
