Let’s talk ingredients
For these Thai chicken naan bread pizza, you will need:
- naan– or any flatbread
- sauce– yogurt, thai curry paste and tomatoes- yes, this sounds insane but trust me on this one 😉
- chicken– we are using slow cooker honey lime chicken but you can use any shredded or chopped cooked chicken
- cheese– mozzarella works best here but dollops of ricotta are also amazing!
- toppings– thinly sliced bell peppers, shredded carrots and fresh cilantro to serve
Tips for perfect pizzas
- broil– we need to use the broiler for this recipe. If you are not in North America, this refers to cooking under an extremely high heat in your oven, and may be called the ‘grill’.
- caution– keep an eye on your naan as it broils, as it can go from golden to burnt in seconds! All ovens behave differently so the best way to know when your pizza is done is to keep a careful eye on it.
- meal plan– find a meal prep plan + shopping list for this recipe here!
- grill- yes, you can make these naan pizzas on the barbecue as well! Full directions are in the recipe card.

I can’t find naan. What can I use instead?
This method should work well on a variety of flatbreads. Pita bread should work as well. Keep in mind that cook times may vary if you swap the naan.
Can I meal prep this recipe?
After cooking the pizza, it’s best to eat it right away as it is just not as good after sitting. If you want to meal prep, you could prep chop the veggies, pre-shred the cheese and cook the chicken ahead. In fact, this recipe is part of a meal prep plan (+shopping list), which you can find here!
Can I swap an ingredient?
Naan bread pizza is such a flexible recipe. Here are some swaps you can make:
- sauce- swap the sauce for regular pizza sauce, pesto or barbecue sauce. To keep it ‘Thai’, you could swap the sauce for peanut sauce!
- protein- swap the chicken for shrimp, pepperoni, or omit it
- veggies- swap for your favorite pizza toppings! Pineapple, red onion, olives, spinach and so many more.
