Homemade Naan

Tonight I was making a nice Greek salad, with gyros...and thought..."why not make my own Naan?"
This was my first try at Naan.  The process was easy...but did require an hour of rising time.  But oh the benefits...yum.  After all, there is nothing better than homemade.  Anything.  Ever.  Amen.

2 cups all purpose flour or white bread flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 c. lukewarm skim milk
1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
2 tablespoons plain yogurt (I used greek yogurt)
1 egg
2-3 tablespoons melted butter, for brushing


Mix the flour and salt together into a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, mix milk with yeast and sugar.

Add the yeast and milk mixture, oil, and egg to the flour. Combine the mixture until it forms a soft dough. Add a little more milk if the dough is too dry.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes, or until it feels smooth. Return the dough to the bowl, cover and leave in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
Preheat the oven to 450. Turn the dough onto the floured surface and knead for another 2 minutes. Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces, shape into balls and roll out into teardrop shapes.
Place the naan on a baking sheet and bake for 3-4 minutes, or until puffed up. Switch oven to broiler setting and broil naan until tops are slightly browned.
Brush with butter. Cut up into smaller portions if desired. Serve warm.
