Are you familiar with naan bread? I hadn't actually tried it until recently. It's like a soft, pita or flatbread that is great for making personal pizzas. My mom calls it nana bread, which is super wrong and makes me think of bananas. So, just so we are clear, bananas are not involved here.
I've been buying naan in the bakery section at the grocery, but I thought I'd try my hand at making it.
And you know what? It was super easy!
Homemade Naan Bread
makes 6 pieces
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c.wheat flour
1 tsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 c. greek yogurt
1/2 c. milk, warmed (I used almond milk)
melted butter (optional)
In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Pour in oil and yogurt. Lightly mix. Add in warmed milk and mix until dough comes together.
Knead for 7 minutes, adding a bit of flour if necessary. Set aside and allow dough to rest for 2 hours.
Divide dough into 6 equal pieces. On a well floured surface roll out dough to desired thickness. Mine was pretty thin.
Heat a large stainless steel pan on medium-high heat. Lightly brush water on one side of the naan. Spray pan lightly with non-stick spray. Place water side down in the pan and cover with lid immediately. Allow to cook for 1-2 minutes. Naan will begin to bubble. Flip and cook the other side, about 1 minutes.
Remove from the pan.
Brush with butter if you wish. Serve warm.

Isn't it awesome looking? I love it :)
I used mine to make a pizza with some thinly sliced brussels sprouts, bacon, fresh corn and cheese.
Or it is really great torn into pieces and dipped in hummus or as a fancy sandwich~so many possibilities!
Happy Monday, people!
