Bombay House Chicken Tikka Masala PIZZA!

Tonight I made one of the BEST things I have ever eaten in my life. You know, the kind of dish where you roll your eyes and um and ah, and go back for way more servings than you probably should!? This is one of those rare, beautifully perfect recipes, that I absolutely couldn’t wait to share! I already LOVE Bombay House’s Chicken Tikka Masala, but on a pizza–I think it brings it to a whole new level. The pizza base is like serving it with warm naan bread, and topped with all that melted mozzarella cheese, just makes it EXTRA amazing! So I hope you all love this recipe as much as I do, because i’m pretty darn excited about it!

Ingredients:
1 pizza base
1/2 red onion
1 bunch of cilantro
mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 Lbs chicken breast
(Marinade)
1 cup plain yoghurt
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp red pepper
2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground ginger
(sauce)
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 jalapeños
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp salt
1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
1 c heavy whipping cream

Directions:
Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and place in a ziploc bag with the marinade ingredients: {yoghurt, lemon juice, cumin, red pepper, black pepper, cinnamon, salt & ginger}. Marinade from 2-12 hours.

Cook the chicken in a pan over medium high heat for about 5 minutes either side, until no longer pink in the center.

Dice 1 jalapeño for the sauce, and slice the other one for a pizza topping (optional).

Melt the butter over medium heat. Add garlic and jalapeño and cook for 1 minute.

Add the coriander, cumin, paprika, garam masala and salt. Stir to combine

Stir in the tomato sauce and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in the cream. Spread half of the sauce on the pizza base.

Top with the cooked chicken tikka 

Add the slices of jalapeño (optional– I put them on my husband’s half, but not mine!) :-/ 

Spread the remaining masala sauce on top.

Cover with mozzarella cheese

Bake at 425degF for 8-10 minutes (or according to pizza base directions). If you make a pizza base from scratch, cooking times may vary. 

Top with chopped cilantro 

And slices of red onion 

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this recipe? Not only is it one of the best things I have ever posted, but probably my new favorite pizza of all time!

As usual, please let me know what you think, and ENJOY! (Seriously, there’s no way you won’t!)
