Pizza
Heat the olive oil in a hot pan over medium heat. Add the Findus Wok Thai, ginger and garlic. Fry for 5 minutes until tender.
Spread cultured cream or crème fraîche over each naan bread. Scatter the vegetables and chicken on top and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 5-6 minutes until crisp. Top the pizzas with dollops of the sauce, the chickpeas, ricotta, spring onions and basil leaves.

TIP: Use leftover roasted chicken for the pizzas or simply buy a readymade rotisserie chicken from the supermarket.

To make beautiful spring onion curls, thinly slice a spring onion from top to bottom. Place in ice water for 20 minutes. Strain and use.
