Homemade Naan

A couple of weeks (months probably…where does the time go?!?), we shared a Naan Pizza with Olives and Feta recipe and we had quite a few requests for a homemade naan bread recipe.


Here it is!

Crazy delicious, perfectly smooth and soft. And be warned…you take one bite, you’ll eat several pieces!

Keyword: homemade bread, homemade naan
Servings: 16 servings


  • 2 1/4 tsp yeast (1 packet)
  • 1 cup warm milk, 125 degrees F
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • Additional butter for oiling the pan/griddle.


  • Combine all ingredients EXCEPT garlic in bread machine. Youll want to place the wet ingredients in the bottom followed by the dry. Make sure to leave out the garlic.
  • Start the machine on the dough setting.
  • When the dough cycle is completed, remove the dough and knead in the garlic on a lightly floured surface.
  • Cut the dough into 16 equal pieces. Roll the dough pieces into balls and place them on a greased pan. Cover the pan with greased plastic wrap and a towel and allow them to rise until theyve doubled their size. This takes 20 - 40 minutes.
  • Preheat griddle or frying pan to medium high heat (around 375 degrees).
  • Once the second rise is complete, youll want to butter the griddle.
  • Roll one ball of dough out into to around inch. Place the dough on on the griddle and cook for 3 minutes until fluffy and showing brown bubbled areas.
  • Brush the raw side with butter. Flip the bread and brush the browned side with butter. Cook snother 2 to 4 minutes until done. The naan should be nicely browned on both sides.
  • Complete the steps for all remaining dough.
