How to store your leftover flatbread:

It’s best to store any leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge! That’s if you have any leftovers 😉 I like using these containers for easy fridge storage and these for on the go!

If you don’t have flatbread to use, other great options would be:

  • wraps or tortillas
  • large pita bread
  • cauliflower crust (which depending on your BBQ sauce will make this pizza gluten-free!)
  • a pre-made pizza base
  • make your own crust! (I love this one from Simple Mills)

How do I make the shredded bbq chicken?

I think it’s best in the crockpot! I will add 1 lb chicken breast, 1 cup bbq sauce, ⅓ cup chicken broth, sea salt and black pepper to the crockpot. Then let it cook for 3-4 hrs. Once cooked, remove from the crockpot and shred the chicken. Add the chicken back to the crockpot to soak up all the bbq sauce!

Can I add any other toppings?

Sure! Canned corn would go really great with the BBQ sauce & the pineapple! If you’re looking to up the veg content thinly sliced mushrooms would also be delicious on top.

What is the difference between naan and pizza dough?

Naan is an Indian flatbread made from white flour (sometimes whole wheat flour), yeast, milk, yogurt, salt, and ghee or cooking oil. When it comes to pizza dough, we see some similarities: white flour, yeast and salt are all used. However, pizza dough does not contain milk or yogurt and olive oil is typically used instead of ghee or cooking oil.

Naan is traditionally cooked in a tandoor oven at high temperatures, which means that it needs to be able to withstand extreme temperatures without burning. Pizza dough is usually cooked at much lower temperatures in a home oven or even stove top so it doesn’t need to be as robust as naan.

So what does this mean for the composition of each dough? The difference between the two seems to come down to the presence of dairy products in naan.

The difference is not in the ingredients. Naan and pizza dough have almost exactly the same ingredients: flour, water, yeast, and salt. The differences are in the proportions and how they are used.

What BBQ sauce did you use?

I used a Texas BBQ sauce from Central Market. Any of your favorites can be used here.

I get the flatbread at Trader Joe's.

If you make the crockpot bbq chicken, you will have enough for a couple meals besides the flatbread.

I like mozzarella, but you can use any cheese that melts well.

Minced garlic comes in the jar from Trader Joes so it has a little oil with it too.

Talk soon, Taylor.
