Grilled Naan Pizza with Chutney and Corn

Do you love the ease of super quick grilled food in the summer? I definitely do! And as summer starts winding down, I take every opportunity to enjoy the outdoor grill and the summer bounty.

That is how the Grilled Naan Pizza came about. This is an easy, no fuss, meal that is simply scrumptious! The corn topping is a combination of Indian and Mexican flavors. The addition of the fresh summer tomatoes, cilantro and red onion gives this pizza a definite oomph!

I started by preparing the corn topping. You can use fresh corn on the cob, grill it and remove the kernels or use frozen defrosted corn and roast them in a teaspoon of oil, in a pan. Then add the cumin seed powder, red chili powder, sea salt, brown sugar and lime juice. Mix.

Add the soft cheese wedge. I used Sonoma Jack’s peppercorn parmesan this time. The corn topping then looks like this-

I used frozen garlic naan and grilled it for about a minute on each side. I used Deep brand this time-

Then added the green chutney. I used store bought chutney but many a times will use a green chutney that I have previously made and refrigerated.

Top with the shredded 5 cheese blend and the toppings!

Grill on low, with the lid covered, one to two minutes, until the cheese is all melty and gooey and the tomatoes and onions have that freshly grilled taste that perk up their flavors!

    Yumm Sandhya, these grilled naans look awesome – I like the addition of the chutney as a base sauce before you put on all those other goodies. Tell me though, did that naan bread come with all those nice bits of coriander or whatever green is on there (your first picture)? A friend just delivered some nice fresh corn, so perhaps I should make these for a quick supper.

    I just tried the corn, fresh tomatoes and onions at my brother’s house on pizza. Next time, we need to use your link to green chili chutney. We did add cumin. We used garlic and purple onions, Sandhya. I like that the cell phone has your recipes at a few times of researching your collection. 🙂

    I love all of the veggies, Sandhya. I hope the grill at my brother’s may get “fired up” sometime soon. ♡ This kind of pizza would be right up their alley. 🙂 There was a warm Thanksgiving, a couple of years ago, where we walked around the zoo. 🙂

      Wow! Warm Thanksgivings are rare in New England, as you know. But this year the weather has been warm so far.Walking around the zoo is so relaxing!
      Yes this pizza can be put together quickly and tastes awesome when grilled.

        This year was when my grandson was 3, so 3 years ago. We put turkey in oven, started casseroles and they would be able to re-warm, then since Thanksgiving is Free day st Cleveland Zoo, we went all adults and one child, at the time.
        Sandhya, we like cornbread stuffing, real cranberries in a sugar and vanilla syrup, green beans sauteed with almonds or onions, mashed potatoes and gravy.
        What is your ♡ dinner going to include? Will you post it soon? 🙂

        What a fun tradition to go to the zoo while the turkey cooks! I am drooling reading about your menu.
        We have been getting together with our friends for many years at our friend’s house. She is an amazing cook and has a menu with cranberry and dill bread, turkey, stuffing, yams, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, pumpkin and pecan pies. We all pitch in. My contribution is the salad, mashed potatoes and the apple crisp for dessert. One year everyone especially loved the salad with pear, beets, Gorgonzola and walnuts, so that has become the ‘official’ salad for TG:)

    Friends,
    A quick and easy meal during the busy holiday time that is loved by the entire family too! How often does that happen?
    In wintertime, I bake the naan on a pizza stone in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven following about the same timing for baking as I do on the barbeque grill in the summer.
    Enjoy the ease of a quick and delicious meal!
    Wishing you all Happy Holidays!
    Love,
    Sandhya
