why does my naan always turn out like pita bread?

kathryng | Jan 17, 2012 06:33 PM

I've tried to make naan 3 or 4 times, each time trying a new recipe and each time it turned out like pita bread instead of naan. They come out looking like this (for example): http://www.blogcdn.com/www.slashfood..... They are very tasty, but just not naan.

Any suggestions for what could be going wrong? I don't know if it's that I haven't found the right recipe, or if I'm not using the proper oven temperature (I've tried broiling, using a pizza stone, and using a cookie sheet at 400 degrees), or if I'm not kneading and shaping the dough correctly.

I joke that since I am Middle Eastern, my flat bread attempts are destined to turn out like pita bread no matter what, but seriously, what am I doing wrong?
