Peach Chicken Naan Pizza

This Peach Chicken Naan Pizza with aromatic fresh basil, crunchy pine nuts, cream cheese, and two kinds of smoked cheese, is a delicious way to enjoy summer stone fruit.

Before we talk about this Peach Chicken Naan Pizza, I need to apologize. I’ve lied to you. Twice. When I posted the recipes for this Cherry Prosciutto Naan Pizza and Gnocchi Cherry Crispy Prosciutto Salad, I promised to publish another ice cream idea.

As you can clearly see, I’ve failed. Twice. Being a decent guy, I am not sure if I should keep promising this. I don’t want you to doubt my credibility. The reason is the same. The heat. My brains continue to melt, and I have lost any encouragement to sort out and edit those ice cream photos.

I see the light at the end of the tunnel, though. Remember the reason I had opted for the pizza and gnocchi salad instead of the ice cream (fewer pictures to go through)? I am about to run out of those lazy solutions! I do have one or two recipes that (I assume) have fewer photographs…and then the ice cream! There are some other recipes waiting for their lucky time, but I am even afraid of opening the folders – I think I went a bit nuts when taking those pictures.

Anyway, I certainly believe you are not upset with me for posting this Peach Chicken Naan Pizza. That’s the pizza, after all. Not a real pizza, but still gooey, cheesy, and scrumptious. I know my love for sweet and savory combinations, so I could not miss this variation. It requires only a few ingredients and 15 minutes of your time prior to making the pizza. Btw, grilled chicken leftovers would be a great addition here. Result? Phenomenally delicious. As I had 3 flatbread at that time, I topped one pizza with nectarines, and the result was equally delicious.

Chicken combined with succulent peaches, fresh basil, pine nuts, and smoked cheese? I think it’s pretty much a quintessence of a summer meal!

  1. This looks sensational Ben and this is officially my dinner tonight (except the peaches because alas it’s winter and they aren’t around) but I’ll find some way to recreate this deliciousness tonight. Thanks

  2. No worries about the ice-cream! You certainly made up for it with this beauty of a pizza! Love all those flavours and the addition of pine nuts is lovely! I could enjoy this one all summer (or all year, really) long.

  3. Peaches and chicken together, yes I see how that could go together. Nice. And then there’s the cream cheese, grated smoked cheddar (yum) and smoked mozzarella (yum yum!!). Yes I love the thoughts of all the flavours you’ve got going here Ben. Delicious! I’ll forgive you for not giving us that ice cream recipe yet!

  4. Oh, that ice cream. I’m wondering if it will ever show up. Haha! I trust that you wouldn’t just keep lying to us, though. But in the meantime, I’m ok with more naan pizzas. You’ve always got fun toppings, and I’m all about the peaches lately. I’m pretty sure peaches rank up there in top 3 favorites fruits for me. I need to try this on this flatbread now…or better yet, I’ll just have you send me one. Can you make sure it’s hot when it arrives? :-)

  5. Ben, my mouth is watering! What a brilliant idea! You know how I love your naan pizzas, and I cannot wait to make this one! Thanks for the recipe!
