Both tangy and sweet, these naan pizzas are the perfect way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken.


  • 4 pieces naan
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce (divided)
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 4 ounces shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro


  1. Preheat the oven to 425° F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Arrange the naan breads onto the baking sheet.
  4. Drizzle ½ tsp. of olive oil over each naan bread. Using the back of a spoon or clean hands, rub the oil over the surface of each bread.
  5. Spoon 1 ½ Tablespoons of barbecue sauce onto the center of each naan bread. Use the back of a spoon to spread it into an even layer, leaving a ½” border around the sauce. Reserve the remaining 2 Tablespoons of barbecue sauce for serving.
  6. With a sharp knife, slice the onion very finely, a scant 1/8” thick.
  7. Arrange an equal amount of onion slices onto each naan bread.
  8. Arrange an equal amount of shredded chicken onto each naan bread.
  9. Sprinkle an equal amount of shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheeses over the chicken.
  10. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven.
  11. Bake for 13-15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden and the naan is crisp.
  12. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  13. Dice the tomato. Remove the seeds and discard.
  14. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves.
  15. Top each naan pizza with an equal amount of diced tomato and chopped cilantro leaves.
  16. Drizzle with the reserved barbecue sauce.
  17. Slice and serve.
