Saag Paneer Pizza

SaagPaneerPizzaWe’ve made some delicious Saag Paneer in the past few months, and we make a lot of pizza, so when TheKitchn, one of my favorite blogs, had a recipe for Saag Paneer Pizza, I knew we had to try it. I am sure it would be great on Naan, but we just put it on our regular pizza dough and cooked it on the pizza stone. It was delicious!
