Naan recipe?

Zeldog | Jan 7, 200709:55 PM     23

I went online to check out recipes for naan and they are all over the place in terms of ingredients, leavening and baking methods. Some call for milk, eggs, yogurt and/or butter, but some of the best naan I've had in restaurants seem to be just flour, water, leavening and salt, with a little butter brushed on at the end. Any tried and true recipes out there?

Also, I'm thinking the best way to simulate a clay oven with my gas oven (to get that semi-burnt surface) is to bring the oven temp up to 500 with a baking stone in the middle position, toss in the dough and then turn on the broiler. Anyone tried that?
