StoneFire Naan Flatbreads are the best! It’s the fluffy speckled bread that makes it’s way to the grocery store and happens to be the number #1 Artisan Flatbread Brand (Not sponsored!) Your likely to see it in major grocery stores and it’s because it’s so good and versatile! I love it with Chicken Curry but you can make pizza with it or dip into a bowl of beef chili! Naan is so universal!

Easy Naan Bread Recipe

Making naan bread is super easy! In fact, the labor sums up in three easy steps. The rising time takes 35 minutes and the bread is done cooking in a 2 minute time-frame for each side! And if you’re concerned about using yeast, you can’t really go wrong unless your water is in one extreme or the other. Rule of thumb, if your water is warm your good! Finally, the combination of baking powder and yeast make for the fluffiest flatbread! If you favor flatbread, then are you in for a treat!

This Naan Bread recipe is the Stone-fire Copycat, like the favorite grocery store flatbread! Naan bread is an Indian flatbread that you can serve with curry or use as a pizza crust, taco shell, dipping bread and so much more! 


  • 12" Cast Iron


Naan Bread:

  • 1 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 4 tsp dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 3 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 5 2/3 cup flour


How to make Naan Bread:

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer whisk together all the ingredients, except for the flour. Stir in the flour and knead for 7 minutes. Let dough rise 35 minutes.
  • Pre-heat skillet over medium-low heat. Cut dough in half and then each half into 8 equal pieces.
  • Shape all pieces into balls and roll each into 10-inch ovals.
  • Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes or until cooked through with brown spotting.


Note: The dough should be slightly tacky when working with but will result in fluffy naan. If to sticky to handle lightly grease the surface area, if needed. I do not recommend additional flour when rolling out as that can result in a drier crust.  
  • I noticed the naan dough that has risen a little before cooking in the skillet got more bubbles. Try to roll out 4 at a time to let sit before cooking.

What is Naan?

Naan is a popular flatbread in the Middle East. It means bread in Persian and is said to be invented somewhere between India and Pakistan. Typically, it resembles a tear drop shape and is baked in a clay oven. You will find leavening in Naan.

What is the difference between Naan Bread and Pita Bread?

Both flatbreads similar in rising ingredients, however it is said Pita bread differs in the leaner factor as Naan is enriched with dairy ingredients, such as eggs, milk or yogurt. That could be the case with pocket pita bread, however not so, with my fluffy pita bread for Gyros.

Can you use whole wheat flour?

Whole wheat grain or flour can be used in Homemade Naan, however whole wheat can tend to be heavier and denser. Try incorporating white flour if possible or make a sponge batter with partial flour at the beginning, to enhance the addition of whole wheat, as seen in this Whole Wheat Naan Recipe.

What can you eat with Naan bread?

Naan is so universal! It’s great with rice dishes or a bowl of soup, use as a pizza crust and enjoy with many dips! Here a some ideas:

  1. Perfect White Rice 
  2. Beef Chili
  3. Bread Pizza
  4. Broccoli Cheddar Soup (Panera Bread Copycat)



  1. Use whole-wheat flour to make healthier Naan.
  2. Add crushed or Roasted garlic to the wet ingredients to enhance the bread.
  3. Freeze leftovers!
  4. Make a quick lunch or dinner by spreading sauce and cheese over the bread and toast!

    What if i dont hav that special attatchment for my mixer? Can i hand stir it?

      • Alyona Demyanchuk

      Absolutely, you can use your hands to knead the dough.

    • Katie

    If you are gluten intolerance can you use any other flour?

      • Alyona Demyanchuk

      Hi Katie, I haven’t experimented with gluten-free, let me know if that works out.

    There is a small family owned restaurant chain in Des Moines, Iowa called Tasty Taco. People either love or hate these tacos…I am on the love side, because they are so different from any taco you can get else where. What makes it special (different) is the shell. I have been trying to figure out how they do it for over 30 years. I believe is made of flour and lightly fried…very soft inside. I realized the Tasty Taco shell is closest to Naan. So, I bought the Stonefire and deep fried it for 15 seconds and it is very close. Your copycat is close, but not as fluffy.
    I am not sure where you live, but if you ever travel to or through Des Moines…please stop by and have one. I would like you thoughts on how to modify yours to get even closer. Thanks!

    Do you let the yeast and hot water sit and get foamy Before putting the other ingredients in?

      • Alyona Demyanchuk

      Hi Dee, the yeast is mixed with the wet ingredients prior to adding the flour, as mentioned in step 1.

    • Ellen Chamberlain

    Wonderful and so very easy and fast! I did end up spraying my rolling pin and board a little with a cooking spray. That helped a lot so the dough rolled easier.
    Never knew it was this simple to make naan!
