Infusing the flavors of east and west together, these naan pizzas are the recipe work of Elizabeth Karmel from the Institute of Culinary Education in New York. The pizzas take the traditional Indian flatbread and top it with chicken tikka masala in order to transform the dish from something eaten with naan to being enjoyed baked onto naan instead.
The naan pizzas take the classic pizza form and transform it from a somewhat basic recipe into a dish that blends traditions in an unexpected way. Many consumers are looking for ways to try new foods and experience different flavors, so dishes are being augmented with regional preferences in mind as seen with the naan pizza. This positions an exotic recipe with a simple dish that could increase the likelihood of those who would be interested in trying it out.
