I wanted to share this fun pizza with you.

Ever since we discovered that we love Indian food, we have been consuming a massive amount of chicken tikka masala. Its seriously the best ever. (And since we found this awesome simmer sauce at the grocery store we can seriously have it on the table in like, less than 15 minutes).

So when I found this recipe I knew I wanted to give it a try! Its so easy, and is really delicious! Its not quite chicken tikka masala, but the flavors are there, and it was really good.

Plus its fun to say “chicken tikka pizza” fast. Dare you to say it 5 times in a row!
