Mozzarella Pesto Naan (no-yeast)
This Mozzarella Pesto Naan (no-yeast) is a delicious flatbread recipe stuffed with pesto and mozzarella cheese. It’s a super simple snack that can be made in a skillet or on a grill. The bread only takes about 30 minutes of actual hands-on time and you can prepare it in advance.
Start by making the dough using a mixer with the dough hook attached. Divide the dough into 10 equal portions and shape into buns. Lightly brush the surface of each bun with olive oil. Cover with loose plastic, and leave to rest for at least 1 hour. Flatten the dough portions. Place some pesto in the center of half of them and spread it out a little without breaking the dough. Place a slice of mozzarella cheese on top of the pesto and cover with another piece of dough, joining the edges well and taking care that the filling does not escape. Cook the naan slowly on a skillet or grill over low heat until the dough is dry and the loaves are golden brown. Repeat on both sides, allowing time for the dough to cook well.
