One of the things I love about making pizza is that it can be a creative way to use up leftovers. I happened to have Crockpot Butter Chicken in my freezer, but not enough to feed the whole family for dinner, so I decided to make pizza with it. Tony and I had recently visited a new Indian restaurant in town and we were excited to try the Butter Chicken Pizza on the menu, only to find that they weren’t serving pizza there anymore. We were a little disappointed because it sounded really interesting. Luckily that’s what gave me the idea to make it at home. This is so easy to make, and you don’t necessarily need to use leftovers like I did. You could simply use a jar of butter chicken sauce and combine it with cooked chicken from the deli. Spread it on a pizza crust, top with fresh baby spinach and cheese, and bake it. You’re in for a treat! Tony and I loved it, but I think the boys prefer their usual ham and pineapple pizza. Next time maybe I’ll add pineapple just so they’ll eat it.
As usual for my pizza recipes, the below recipe is just a rough guideline to be tailored to your own personal preferences. Pizza is a very flexible and forgiving thing, which is another reason why I love it. In fact, I wish people were more like pizza, don’t you?
