How to Make Naan Bread on the Skillet:

If you prefer, you can make Naan Bread on the skillet indoors. We recommend cooking in a cast iron skillet for a similar texture when cooked on the griddle.

After mixing the naan ingredients together place on a heated skillet that has been oiled with olive oil. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side.
