     Alex's Naan Bread

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   8

2 t. Dry Active Yeast
1 t. Sugar
1/2 C Water warm
2 1/2 - 3 C Flour
1/2 t. Salt
1/4 C Olive Oil
1/3 C plain Yogurt
1 Egg
Garlic Salt
Parsley dried

In a bowl combine the yeast, sugar and warm water. Stir to dissolve then let sit for a few minutes or until it is frothy on top. When frothy whisk in the oil, yogurt, and egg until evenly combined.
In a separate bowl combine 1 cup of the flour with the salt. Next pour the bowl of wet ingredients in the flour/salt mixture and stir until well combined. Continue adding flour a half cup at a time until you can no longer stir it with a spoon. At that point turn the ball of dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead the ball of dough for about 3 minutes adding small amounts of flour as necessary to keep the dough from sticking. You'll end up using between 2 1/2 - 3 cups of flour total. The dough should feel smooth and very soft but not sticky. Avoid adding excessive amounts of the flour as you knead, because it can make the dough too dry and stiff.
Loosely cover the dough and let it rise until double in size amount 1 hour. After it rises, gently flatten the dough into a disc and cut it into 8 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a small ball. Heat a large heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat. It is important that the skillet be heated before putting the dough on it.
Working with one ball at a time roll it out until it is flat. Make it as round as possible. Place the flat round piece of rolled dough onto the hot skillet and cook until the bottom is golden brown and large bubbles have formed on the surface. Flip the dough and cook the other side until golden brown as well. Stack the cooked flat bread on a plate and cover with a towel to keep warm as you cook the remains pieces. Serve plain or brushed with melted butter, garlic salt and dried parsley. For the most bubbles to form don't roll the the ball of dough until just before it is ready to be placed in the skillet. A medium heat produces the most bubbles. This bread brushed with the topping of choice freezes very well.
