Naan Mexican Pizza


If you have never had pizza on naan you are really missing out, seriously this bread is perfect for pizza.. and the best part is you don't have to make it! We buy the Stonefire brand naan from Walmart in the bread section. They have this whole grain one, they have garlic and just regular naan and they're all really good! We have made a garlic cheesy bread with the garlic one but we're talking about pizza so here we go.

 Ingredients:
1 pkg of Stonefire Tandoori Naan
1 Can Black Beans
1 Jar of your favorite salsa
Cafe rio style dressing (recipe to come)
Sour Cream
Shredded Cooked Chicken
1 Pkg Shredded Fiesta Blend Cheese
Cilantro for garnish
Lime Slices for garnish
Crushed Tortilla Chips

Directions:

Sprinkle1-2 chicken breasts with taco seasoning, salt and pepper. Pour about 3/4 cup of salsa over the top and cook in a crock pot on low until chicken easily shreds.
Take about half of the black beans out of the can and smash them with a fork or a food processor. Spread the smashed beans onto the naan and this will be your base, like a red sauce would be. Then pour your salsa over the beans.
Sprinkle your cooked chicken over the beans. It should look something like this.





I know in the picture we had used re-fried beans as the base which you can do but we liked it more when we used black beans instead.







Top with cheese and some of the whole black beans left over. Bake at 500 degrees for about five minutes directly on the oven rack. Make sure you put a pan on the rack below the one you're putting your pizza on because some cheese may fall as your placing your pizza on the upper rack and it will definitely smoke up the house at 500 degrees.. You're basically just warming everything through, getting the crust crisped up and cheese nice and bubbly.

Take it out and top with dressing, sour cream, crushed chips and a squeeze of lime juice. Cut and enjoy. One pizza feeds about two people. If you're really hungry you may be able to eat one. :)
