I wanted to share with you guys my new favorite recipe that I tried in my kitchen this week and LOVED! I don’t know if any of you have ever tried Naan bread, but if you haven’t then you need to! Naan bread is an oven-baked flat bread that originates from South Asia. It is typically served hot and can be used for a dip or filled with other food. I recently used it as a flat bread pizza. Now, I am not making pizza all the time, however, if you’re going to have pizza it is much better to make it yourself. First, because you know the ingredients that are being put into it and secondly you can find much healthier recipes/substitutes. I bought my Naan bread from the grocery store, however, I found a great recipe to make it homemade and will definitely be trying that soon. I will leave you guys with my pizza recipe and the recipe to make the Naan bread. Remember to have fun, get creative with your cooking, and to try NEW THINGS.
Flatbread Pizza with Naan Bread
Salt & Pepper
- Cook 2 eggs in coconut oil (I do over easy so the yoke will break and make it even more delicious!)
- Warm the Naan bread
- Mash the Avocado and spread on top of the bread
- Put Arugula on top
- Place eggs on top
- Slice into a few pieces and enjoy!
Homemade Naan Bread Recipe
- ¾ cup coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons psyllium husk powder
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄3 cup coconut oil melted
- 2 cups boiling water
- Oil for frying
- 4 oz. butter (organic)
- 1–2 garlic cloves, freshly squeezed
- Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add oil and then boiling water and stir thoroughly.
- Allow to rise for five minutes. The dough will turn firm fairly quickly, but stay flexible. It should resemble the consistency of Play-Doh. If you find it’s too runny then add more psyllium husk until it feels right. The amount needed may vary depending on what brand of husk or coconut flour you use.
- Divide into 6 or 8 pieces and form into balls that you flatten with your hands directly on parchment paper or on the kitchen counter.
- Fry carefully in oil in a frying pan until they turn a nice color and have risen enough.
- Heat the oven to 140°F (70°C) and keep the bread warm while you make more.
- Melt the butter and stir in the freshly squeezed garlic. Apply the melted butter on the bread pieces using a brush and sprinkle flaked salt on top.
- Pour the rest of the garlic butter in a bowl and dip pieces of bread in it.
