He came, he climbed, he rolled.

From my hummus post, i promised to show you how to turn naan into thin crust pizza didn’t i?

Well, here it is! :)

Naan…. i’ve said it and i’ll say it again. It’s not a daunting task at all. In fact, it is so fun (to see the bubbles when they’re baking in the wok!) and so deliciously fluffy that you’ll be addicted to make them again and again, just like me!

Though the picture can’t tell you how fluffy, soft they are.. but they really are just that!

Better yet, spread a spoonful of garlic butter on it and i guarantee you’ll be sold. You will never see homemade naan in the other light ever again.

The recipe yields 9 huge naan.

If your family is anything like mine, few adults with few kitties kids (umm, they do eat as little as kitties!), you’ll never be able to finish all 9 of it. However, halving the recipe isn’t recommended. After all, so much effort has been put in so why would anyone wanna make do with just 4 naan? I say, might as well 9! *wink*


Because you can keep the extra naan in the fridge for next day quick dinner, or in my case, quick and fuss-free lunch!

These lovely naan.. oh boy, they do make beautiful thin crust pizza if i may say so myself. Like really~!

All you need to do is get them out from the fridge and spread whatever toppings you like, chuck them in the oven and voila!

As fluffy and soft they were the day before, when you bake them the second time, i assure you… you will not be able to tell that they were actually the naan from yesterday! *pinky promise!* They are exactly like any thin crust pizza you buy from restaurants and cafes ;)
