Naan Bread Pizza
- Makes 6 Portions
- 1hr 15 minutes preparation
- 3 minutes cooking time
- 500g Allinson Very Strong White Bread Flour
This is versatile, everyday bread flour with a high protein content which helps to make the perfect loaf. Bread flour has higher gluten levels than culinary flours such as plain or self-raising. Very strong bread flour has an even higher gluten level so can be used to produce a higher rise loaf. Good for white loaves, pizza dough and pasta.
- 1½tsp Billington’s Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar
This is the highest quality caster sugar available and is a great natural alternative to refined caster sugar. It has a warm golden colour from its unrefined nature and is fine grained with a subtle buttery taste, making it perfect for deliciously light sponges, shortbread and macaroons.
- 1 tbsp Butter
- 7g Allinson Easy Bake Yeast
Perfect to use in bread makers and hand baking this yeast, gives your dough a quick rise, eliminating the need to ‘knock back.’ The dough will only require one kneading and one period of proving. The yeast can be added with the flour straight from the pack and will become activated as soon as it comes into contact with the liquid.
- 300ml Warm Water
- 4 tsp Nigella Seeds
- 2 tbsp Melted Butter
- Mixing Bowl
- Tea Towel
MIXMix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big bowl. Using your fingertips, rub in the butter until only fine ‘crumbs’ are left. Mix in the water with a knife.
KNEADTip onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer)
RISELightly grease a mixing bowl with some oil and place the dough in the bowl. Cover with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until it has doubled in size – this should take about 1 hour depending on how warm your kitchen is.
SHAPEHeat the grill to medium with a large baking sheet on the top shelf. Knead 2 tsp of the Nigella seeds into the dough and then divide into 6 even pieces (use a weighing scale if you like) and roll into balls. Roll each ball into a thin tear drop shape on a flour dusted surface. Scatter over the remaining seeds and gently roll again to stick them.
BAKEIn batches, carefully lift the naans onto the preheated baking sheet. Grill for 2-3 minutes, turning over halfway until lightly browned, then remove from the oven and top with your topping of choice.
Have you ever thought about combining pizza and naan bread? Neither had we, until now. These home made naan breads are so simple to make using Allinson strong white bread flour and they take minutes to cook in the grill. In the video, we’ve topped one with savoury and one with vegetarian toppings. You can top yours with whatever you like. Especially good for fussy eaters!
