Grilled Greek Chicken Pizza on Naan Bread




I really have no words for this pizza...o.k., YUM!

That's how I will summarize this cheesy, Greeky (new word) Goodness!

I've never meet anyone who doesn't love pizza. If you're out there, word to the wise...you're missing out on the foodie life!


Now take traditional pizza and place those ingredients on top of Naan bread...food heaven!!!!

Back story, I will admit that I eat Naan bread with pretty much anything.

With butter, as toast, topped with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella cheese, just yum.

BTW, when my heirloom tomatoes grow, get ready, get ready, get ready, I am going to be a Naan pizza making mama!


I marinated the chicken breast with plain Greek yogurt, garlic, lots of olive oil, crushed dried Oregano and plenty of spices.

Next, I grilled the chicken up, allowed it to rest, then diced it up to start assembling our pizzas.


Top the pizza with the grilled chicken, mozzarella and feta cheeses, peppers, sun dried tomatoes, and red onion.

Place the pizza back on the grill to cook the Naan bread and allow the cheeses to melt.


After the cheeses melt, I immediately top the pizza with parmigiano reggiano cheese...yes, more cheese people, and fresh basil.

A little drizzle of olive oil and it's time to eat!


It's beautiful, like Greek food art!

What you waiting for people...this is a must make!

I must confess I love great food. I decided to create The Creole Contessa blog after cooking and eating a great meal with my family Big Goo the hubby of almost twenty years and my lil’ Contessa Summer aka “Baby Girl." I told Big Goo and Baby Girl, it is just not fair to not share these great recipes with the world; and the Creole Contessa blog was born.
