Gather all of your ingredients to make your flatbread.
Mix the flour, salt, sugar, eggs, milk, yogurt, olive oil and active dry yeast together in a mixing bowl. You can use a flat paddle or a dough hook.
Add the water and mix about 2 minutes, to make a smooth dough.
Grease a large bowl. Place the dough into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a towel.
Let the dough ferment/rise for 2 hours in a warm place. The dough should be about double in size.
Using a scale, divide the dough into 4 oz portions.
Pre-shape the dough into round tennis sized balls. Place balls onto a lightly floured surface, brush a little oil on the top of each. Cover with a cloth for at least 30 minutes.
Starting with the first dough ball, flatten like a pancake by tossing, slapping and gently stretching with both hands. You want them to be about 6-7 inches round.
Continue shaping the rest of the dough balls until you have done them all.
How to Cook NaanThere are several ways to cook your naan recipe.
Use a deck oven and place dough rounds directly onto the oven floor. Cook until done and golden brown. Remove with a wooden peel paddle.
Using a convention oven, place the dough, in a single layer, on a sheet pan and bake until the bread is browned. Bake approximately 10 to 12 minutes. To prevent a soggy crust, you can open the oven door during the last 2 minutes to help remove excess steam that may build up in the oven.
I cooked my homemade naan in a large non-stick sauté pan on medium low heat with a little bit of grease. Brown both sides until done. This took about 1 ½ to 2 minutes on each side. Continue cooking until all of the dough rounds are done.
Cooking Naan on the GriddleIf you have an outdoor griddle, this is my preferred method of cooking the easy naan recipe. A large cooking surface, the Blackstone griddle is perfect for cooking up several of the dough rounds. After heating my Blackstone 36-inch griddle on medium heat until hot, I place a layer of olive oil onto the flat-top. Line as many of the pre-shaped dough rounds onto the Blackstone griddle as you can. Once the naan bread is golden brown on one side then flip over and brown the other side. Remove from heat once both sides are golden brown.
