Default Going from one ROM to another

I'm looking to switch from the latest CM11 nightly to AOKP can I just flash the new ROM from recovery using the same steps I did to flash CM? Or do I have to flash my rooted stock kitkat ROM in order to go to AOKP?

I assume you have a nexus5 from your Sig, if so take these steps
Copy new ROM + gapps to SD
Reboot to recovery
Do a nandroid backup
Do a factory reset (as in wipe all but internal SD - so no extra data wipe)
Flash ROM
Flash gapps
Reboot - profit!

If you want to wipe all, which can be nice
You will need to use adb sideload to install ROM, this isn't hard and what I do most often as I'm ocd when it comes to a clean wipe, just be sure to backup all data from SD to PC first!

Happy flashing!
