This recipe hardly needs an introduction (seriously… just look at that picture!). Basically, it combines two mouthwatering cuisines – Italian and Indian – to create one crave-worthy dish you’ll want to make over and over again. Serve it to your family as a weeknight meal, present it to your friends for a dinner party appetizer or make it for a no-reason gourmet lunch because… why not?! Chickpeas, pizza and sriracha all taste good on their own, so why not combine them for one meal that joins them all?
