BBQ Hawaiian Pizza

I love using Naan instead of regular pizza dough.  There is something very satisfying about the way the crust is chewy and crunchy all at once.  I found a similar pizza at a hole-in-the-wall joint in Anaheim, California on a college conference trip and couldn’t resist making it at home.  This mix of BBQ sauce, chicken and pineapple comes together to create a harmonious explosion of flavor that you'll want more of right away. 

4 slices bacon
1 medium onion, chopped
2 grilled chicken breasts
Pineapple, in chunks, drained
BBQ sauce
Mozzarella cheese

In a skillet, cook bacon until very crispy.  Remove from skillet and drain.  Remove most of the bacon grease, leaving about 1 tablespoon.  Add onion to skillet and cook until caramelized.  Remove and set aside.  Cut the chicken into 1/4" slices.  Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Drizzle barbecue sauce on top of each piece of naan and spread to cover the bread.  Cover the barbecue sauce with mozzarella cheese.  Top with grilled chicken, caramelized onions, pineapple and bacon.  Bake in the oven until cheese is golden brown. 


  1. Sounds delicious. Coul you replace the pineaple with artichoke hearts? I love your recipes.

  2. Absolutely! The pineapple gives the pizza a refreshing sweetness, but artichoke hearts would also work. They would complement the bacon well.
