Ingredients (Makes 12 Naan Flatbreads) 

1 cup 250 mL warm water

2 tsp 10 mL quick rise yeast

4 cups 560 g all purpose flour, plus additional for

dusting work surface

1 tsp 5 mL salt

1 tbsp 15 mL granulated sugar

1/2 tsp 2 mL baking soda

1 1/4 cups 310 mL plain Greek yogurt

1 tbsp 15 mL oil or melted butter

1/2 cup 125 mL Arla® Smoked Havarti Cheese,


1/4 cup 75 mL fresh mixed herbs, finely chopped

Sprinkle yeast in a medium bowl with warm water; set aside until foamy; approximately 5 – 10 minutes.

In a large bowl mix together the flour, salt, sugar and baking soda.

Make a well into the centre of the flour; add yogurt, oil and yeast mixture. Mix well with a fork and turn out onto a floured work surface.

Knead the dough until soft and pliable; add extra flour if needed to form a smooth, not sticky dough.

Place in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap; allow to rise in a warm place until dough doubles in size; approximately 1 - 3 hours.

Set oven to broil.

Punch the dough, knead several times; allow to rest for 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 12 pieces. Flatten each piece slightly with the palm of your hand; sprinkle each piece equally with shredded Havarti Cheese.

Fold each piece over; flatten again into an elongated flatbread. Place on a baking sheet and bake under the broiler until lightly browned.*

Remove from oven and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh herbs.

*At this point you can set aside and reheat on bbq or indoor grill
