Tandoor Chef, the Original Naan Pizza – Margherita

2016-02-14 18.30.45

It’s pizza.  It’s on naan bread.  It’s naan pizza!  Naan is an oven-baked flatbread popular in asia.  I first heard of and tried naan bread in an Indian restaurant in the Seattle suburb of Fremont.  It’s similar to pita bread.

The pizza was pretty good but forgettable outside the uniqueness of its crust.  It reminded me of a higher quality (the toppings tasted better) Totino’s pizza, mainly because the naan bread crisped similar to the way a Totino’s crust crisps when baked.

Not at all a bad pizza, but also not at all worth the price when compared to Totino’s.  Totino’s Supreme pizza costs $1.35 for a 10.9oz pie ($.12/oz).  Tandoor Chef’s offering comes out to $3.48 for a 7.8oz not-quite-pie ($.45/oz).  I might give it another shot out of curiosity since $3.48 is still cheap, but I don’t think it’s worth the extra $2 over something so similar.  Maybe if I find myself thinking about it naanstop over the next week I’ll buy another one.  Sorry, I was desperate for a terrible pun.

Purchased at HEB for $3.48.  7.8oz, $.45/oz.  7 out of 10.
