Mango Chutney and Ham Pizza

My roommate recently told me there is no savory dish that can't be improved with cheese and no dessert that can't be improved with chocolate.

I think I would have to agree.  You have an especially deadly combination when you combine chocolate and creamy milk products, like in chocolate cheesecake or chocolate ice cream.  

I haven't been getting enough pizza in my life.  I had it for the first time in a few month last week, and I realized what I had been missing.  I wasn't trying to remove pizza from my diet, but it inadvertently happened.  I can't let such a tragedy happen again.  

This is a pretty easy recipe to make.  I used frozen naan from Trader Joe's as the crust.  I also used mango chutney, ham, and mozzarella cheese.   There are only a handful of ingredients and the preparation only takes minutes.

While I preheated the oven to 400 degrees, I spread some mango chutney on a frozen naan.  I like chutney because it's sweet and a little spicy.  It isn't hot spicy but warm spicy.  It has deep flavors that don't burn like hot salsa.  It's delicious.

I added ham and a generous amount of cheese.

I baked this for around 7 minutes at 400 degrees.

The naan becomes crunch around the edges, and the cheese becomes gooey.  These two factors alone make this pizza delicious.

The mango chutney has a spicy and sweet flavor.  The ham is savory and sweet.  The cheese adds a nice mellowness.

This was a quick but savory and delightful dinner.  I enjoy making personal pizzas on naan because the size is perfect and it takes little time to bake.  Yum!
