Naan Pizza Dough

Thin and Crispy Naan Pizza Dough

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry active yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh, chopped parsley.

In a bowl, whisk together 1 cup of flour, baking powder, yeast and salt.  Stir in the yogurt with a spoon until moistened.  Turn mixture out onto a floured surface.  Sprinkle the garlic and parsley over the dough, then knead the dough for 5 minutes, adding the additional 1/4 cup of flour as needed, until the dough is smooth and elastic.  Shape dough into a ball, then place in a lightly oiled bowl, covered with a towel, to rest for about an hour.

Note: because the yeast is not proofed with warm water, the dough doesn't rise (this is a flat bread, after all).  The yeast simply adds a nice chewy texture to the crisp pizza crust.

Yields 1 thin pizza crust.
