From the California Pizza Kitchen Cookbook. This is a very interesting, non-traditional pizza. I made it very spicy by using more jalapeno than called for. Next time, I may briefly saute the zucchini before putting it on the pizza. The chutney is optional, but it is a nice addition.

  5. turn off burner and quickly blend in cilantro and butter; set aside.
  6. Tandoori chicken:.
  7. combine first 5 ingredients (through yogurt).

  16. use a large spoon to spread 1/4 cup tomato yogurt curry evenly over the surface of the prepared pizza dough within the rim.
  17. place slices of yellow squash and zucchini over the sauce; do not overlap.
  18. cover the sauced area with the mozzarella and distribute the sliced tandoori chicken evenly over the cheese (or you can put the chicken on first and top with the cheese - whichever you prefer).
  19. transfer the pizza to the oven; bake till crust is crisp and golden and the cheese is bubbly at the center, about 10-15 minutes.
  20. carefully remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle 1 T chopped fresh cilantro over the top.

So delicious! Did it exactly as indicated (ok, maybe some extra garlic ginger and jalapeno...) and it awesome!

I made this for our weekly pizza night. My boyfriend is a huge fan of curry and he thought this was a delicious pizza. He said he would like to actually have this as just a curry too. He feels it's not the type of pizza to eat weekly, since it is a different taste, but it's a treat pizza. It was pretty easy to make, but it did take me about an hour for prep. I could cut down on the prep time by having the chicken cook while the curry sauce is being made. I don't have a grill, so I sliced up the chicken into cubes and sauteed it with Tandoori sauce. I then took out the chicken to cool, and sauteed the zucchini and squash for a few minutes. I'll definitely make this again.
