2. Ingredients for Oven-Baked Naan

  • 1/4 oz. active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (for bread)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda
  • Flour (for work surface)
  • 2 Tbsp. salted butter (melted)

3. Directions:

3.1 Prep

Whisk together the yeast, water, and sugar in a large mixing bowl until frothy. Add the olive oil and Greek yogurt. Stir to combine. Add the flour, salt, and baking soda to the bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until dry ingredients are combined into wet ingredients.

Using clean hands, knead the mixture until a tacky dough forms, 1-2 minutes. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel and set aside to rise until doubled in volume, about 2 hours.

3.2 Preheat

Place a pizza stone on middle rack of oven. Preheat the oven to 450°F.

3.3 Prep

Turn dough onto a well-floured surface and divide into 6 equal pieces. Use a rolling pin to roll each piece to a scant 1/4-inch thick.

3.4 Oven

Open oven and swiftly place naan dough pieces on the pizza stone. Bake until slightly risen, about 5 minutes.

Open oven once more, and flip the naan. Continue baking until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes.

3.5 Check

Check to see that naan is done. Remove from oven or add time as needed.

3.6 Serve

Brush naan on both sides with the melted butter, if desired, and serve.
