For weeks I have been craving pizza and wings. It seems like every time we got ready to get them something got in the way. Either we were too lazy to go pick it up, or I was too cheap to pay for delivery, or I changed my mind and wanted something else.
On my last Costco trip I decided to get some chicken wings instead of my usual boneless skinless chicken breasts. They also had a 12 pack of Naan bread, which I love to use as a quick pizza crust. I knew that both of these would come in handy soon. I froze all of the naan, and separated half of the chicken wings in the fridge.
One of the most annoying things about ordering pizza is the expense of adding many of your own creative toppings. This is why I love making pizza at home. I can put as many toppings as I want, I usually raid my fridge to try to find new and creative options for my pizza.
So anyway enough of that, on to the recipes.
Naan Pizza Recipe
The pizzas are pretty self explanatory.
Spread a layer of your preferred sauce on your pizza. (I used a heaping tablespoon of marinara sauce and pesto)
Cover with cheese (I used Trader Joes Quatro Formaggio mix)
Sprinkle your favorite toppings on top. (I used turkey pepperoni, spinach, red onion, and sun dried tomatoes)
Crispy Baked Chicken Wing Recipe
12 whole chicken wings separated
Desired Seasonings (I used seasoning salt, pepper, garlic powder, TJs 21 Seasoning salute.) Do not over season.
Preheat oven to 450
Drizzle about 1 TBS of olive oil on the chicken. You want it to be covered but not totally soaked.
Place chicken on a foil lined baking sheet with skin side up. The chicken pieces should not be touching.
Bake at 450 for 45 minutes.
After that, check chicken every 15 minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn. Once you have reached the desired crispness, remove from oven. (I cooked mine for about 1 1/2 hours)
You can eat them like that or sauce them.

Toss cooked chicken wings in the sauce
