Servings 2


  • 2 naan flatbreads individual size; I use Stonefire Naan
  • 2 Tablespoons pesto or more as desired; homemade or store-bought
  • 2 chicken breasts 1 whole; cooked from Foolproof Chicken Recipe; shredded
  • cup shredded scamorza cheese
  • cup shredded mozzarella cheese part skim or whole is fine
  • ¼ cup Calabrian chile peppers sliced thin
  • grated Parmesan cheese as a topping
  • olive oil
  • crushed red pepper optional


  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Lay the flatbread on a baking sheet. Spread each flatbread with 1 Tablespoon of pesto or more as desired.
  • If preparing chicken, follow recipe for my super easy Foolproof Chicken recipe. (And if you haven't made this, once you do, you're going to use it for everything!)
  • Spread shredded chicken evenly over the pesto. Top with the shredded cheeses, fresh grated Parmesan and Calabrian chlies. Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted and naan is crispy.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and crushed red pepper and more parmesan.


  • Serving. Let the pizza sit for 5 minutes before slicing after baking.
  • Storing. Allow pizza to cool before wrapping in plastic wrap and then foil.
