SPICY NAAN PIZZA

 

A little bit ago I posted my mom's spicy spaghetti recipe (check out that recipe here).  Spicy spaghetti was the kid favorite - a welcome variety from RDBS (rotli daal baath shaak).  This recipe uses the sauce from spicy spaghetti but on top of naan with a touch of laughing cow & parm cheeses.
