Ingredients Toppings

Butter Chicken 

(Murgh Makhani)


Fit a stand mixer with a dough hook. Add the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar and give it dry stir. Now, add yogurt and oil into the bowl with the dry ingredients and  mix at a slow speed. Slowly pour in the warm water.


The dough is done when it starts pulling away from the sides and  is smooth. Cover  with a kitchen towel and let the dough rise in a warm place for at least 30 minutes. It's done when it has doubled in size.


Use a rolling pin to thinly roll out the dough into an oval. Pinch the edges together to form a crust. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven. Bake for 10 minutes.


Melt the butter in a tadka pan (or a small sauce pan) and add the minced garlic. Let the butter simmer for 3-4 minutes, until it's fragrant.


Remove the par-baked naan crust from the oven. Brush the garlic butter over the crust (be careful of the hot pan!). Then, add spoons of butter chicken everywhere. Top with with the mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese. Bake for 10 minutes.

Garnish with cilantro. Cut the pizza into 8 slices and serve hot.
