Whether you’re an empty nester or still have kids at home, store bought rotisserie chicken can be your best friend. Yep. It’s a lifesaver for busy couples/families because you can throw it into salads, quesadillas, sandwiches, wraps, pastas, and use it to top pizzas, like this Chicken Pesto Burrata Naan Pizza with Fried Egg! And because we use rotisserie chicken, this entire meal takes two people less than 10 minutes to make. Cross my heart and hope to not to die.

Seriously, This is an Incredible Meal!
I know this pizza looks unassuming, but it is packed with flavor. And it’s incredibly simple to make. Just use store bought naan, top with basil pesto (make your own or buy store bought), creamy dreamy burrata cheese, and rotisserie chicken. A few minutes in the oven and voila! A gorgeous complete meal in minutes. Top with a fried egg to take it over the top and then pile on the greens! I use arugula drizzled with olive oil and lemon and sprinkled with sea salt and pepper for added flavor and nutrients. Top that pizza with a heaping bunch of salad, then fold and eat. A complete meal pizza, who knew?!
Those Eggs Though…
The importance of that egg on top cannot be over emphasized. It really finishes off the pizza perfectly, adding to all the already amazing flavor! I will encourage you to keep the egg yolk runny. It’s the best! Using your naan to wipe up that yolk is heavenly. But if you are like my husband and prefer it cooked through, then I say go ahead and overcook it:) Learn to fry the perfect egg here!
Divvying Up The Jobs:
If one person makes this meal, it’s fast. If two people do, it’s lightening fast! That is if lightening took 8 minutes to make… Here’s how you do it: One of you preheats the oven and shreds the chicken, while the other spreads the pesto on the naan, then you can both add cheese and pine nuts to your liking. Pop it in the oven and while it cooks, one of you will take care of the salad while the other fries the eggs. Kitchen cooperation makes the meal taste even better.

The Recipe: Chicken, Pesto, Burrata Naan Pizza with Fried Egg!
Tips and what you will need: a good egg frying pan, store bought naan, pesto make your own or buy store bought, as always a good quality knife with a full tang blade!
A simple Chicken Pesto Burrata Naan Pizza with Fried Egg that bakes up in under 10 minutes!
- 1/2 to 1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken
- 2-4 pieces naan bread (1 is enough for me, my husband eats 2)
- 1 jar store bought pesto or see my link above for making fresh!
- 4-6 ounces burrata cheese or fresh mozzarella
- small handful pine nuts (optional)
- 2 cups baby arugula
- lemon juice (about half a large lemon)
- 1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter (for egg pan)
- 2-4 fried eggs (depending on how many pizzas you make)
- sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven (or BBQ grill) to to 400 degrees. If using the oven, place rack in upper 1/3 of oven
Spread each slice of naan with approximately 2 tablespoons pesto, keeping it about a 1/2 inch from edges
Top naan with desired amount of burrata, chicken and pine nuts
Place pizza on oven rack or grill for about 6-7 minutes (remove when bread is warm and cheese is melted and bubbly)
While pizza cooks, place arugula in a bowl, drizzle with a little olive oil and toss, all leaves should glisten with oil
Drizzle with half a lemon, toss again sprinkle with sea salt and pepper to taste, set aside
Place pan on high heat. When pan is hot, add enough butter so eggs don't stick
When butter is melted, add eggs to pan
Fry until whites are done and yolk is runny, season with sea salt and pepper
Remove pizzas from oven, top with fried eggs, slice, pile on the arugula, fold and eat!
