Masala Mama’s delicious tomato-based Tikka Masala sauce is perfect as a pizza sauce. This recipe with roasted squash and chickpeas uses naan as a base and is absolutely amazing. It gets polished off as soon as it comes out of the oven, so much so that I have to warn people that it’s hot so they don’t burn their tongues! —MasalaMama

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 °F. On a large lined baking sheet arrange the delicata squash and chickpeas in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cumin, salt and pepper and roast for 20-30 minutes or until the squash is tender and the chickpeas have started to turn golden brown.

  3. Place the Naan pizzas back in the oven and bake until, naan is a little toasty on the sides, about 6-8 minutes.
  4. To serve, dollop the cottage cheese over the top of the pizzas and garnish with cilantro or basil leaves.
