Naan Bread-Sanaa-Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village
Makes 5 (8-inch) breads

– 3 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 tablespoon sugar
– 1 tablespoon coarse salt
– 1/2 tablespoon baking soda
– 1/2 cup milk
– 2/3 cup warm water
– 1 tablespoon canola oil
– 4 tablespoons butter, melted

1.    Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; stir to combine.
2.    Combine milk, water, and oil in a medium bowl; whisk to combine.
3.    With the mixer running, pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients. As soon as the mixture comes together, switch attachment to a dough hook, and mix until dough is smooth and no longer sticky. Do not over-mix.
4.    Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and set aside at room temperature for 1 hour.
5.    Place a pizza stone on a top rack of the oven, positioned approximately 6 inches below the broiler. Preheat oven to 500° for at least 30 minutes.
6.    Divide dough evenly into 5 pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece into an 8-inch circle.
7.    Turn oven to broil. Carefully slide one circle of dough onto the preheated pizza stone, and broil until bread is bubbled and golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Watch carefully, as the bread can burn very quickly. Repeat with remaining dough rounds.
8.    Brush the warm bread with melted butter, and serve immediately.
