Easy Zucchini & Corn Grilled Naan Pizza! Chicken or Vegetarian OptionsIn the Oven or On the Grill, It’s All Good!

You can make this pizza on the grill or in the oven. Both turn out fabulously well. I buy my naan at the grocery store and top it with some olive oil, Parmesan, ricotta cheese, red onions, sliced zucchini and fresh summer corn! Pop it onto the grill or directly into a hot oven and a few minutes later you can enjoy a feast! You can add leftover roasted chicken or store bought rotisserie chicken if desired!

  1. I am going to make a version of this — and share with friends this week. I hope you’ll agree it will still work just fine if i switch out the ricotta (which I don’t have) with a little garlicky creamy ‘Boursin’. I have all the rest — even the naan (in the freezer from a trip to Little India last month!)
    This recipe looks SO good. I hope my version measures up… Linda.. Will let u know!
    Love the idea of an egg on top for breakfast!!
