While on vacation, we made pizzas using Naan bread.  They were so yummy.  Tonight I made them again :)  This bread is so good just plain, too.

1 pkg yeast
1 cup warm water
4 TBL granulated sugar

1 egg, beaten
3 TBL milk
2 tsp salt
4 ½ cup flour
¼ cup butter, melted
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let set until frothy. Stir in sugar, milk, egg, salt, and enough flour to make a soft dough. Knead for 6-8 minutes on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place dough in a well oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and set aside to rise. Let rise until double. Punch down dough. Pinch off small amounts of dough to make 12-14 pieces. Roll into balls and allow to rise again until double. Preheat the grill.

At grill side, roll one ball of dough into a thin circle. ** Lightly oil the grill. Place dough on grill and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until puffy and lightly browned. Brush uncooked side with butter, and turn over. Brush cooked side with butter and cook until done, another 2-4 minutes. Remove from grill and continue cooking until all naan has been prepared.

Top with toppings and then add to grill again to heat.

**After watching my SIL make these, I do them like her.  I actually roll the balls out at the counter and then spread butter on both sides before I put them on the grill.
