  • 2 cups all-purpose flour + more to dust the dough and surfaces
  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil + more to coat the dough and for the pan
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 6 slices vegan cheese


  • Combine the flour, instant yeast, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the olive oil and water. Mix and knead by hand until it's a soft, non-sticky dough, or put all the ingredients in a  kitchen machine and let the machine knead the dough for you. Adjust the dough: If it's too sticky, add more flour. If it's too crumbly, add more water.
  • Coat the ball of dough in a drizzle of olive oil. Transfer the dough into a container and let it rise in the fridge overnight or cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it rise at room temperature for 2 hours.
  • Pinch off a small bit of the dough and roll it out on a floured surface. An oval shape is best!
  • Heat a flat pan (a crepe-pan works best) until hot! Place the naan in the pan. Let it cook until it’s bubbly. Then flip, place a slice of vegan cheese on one side of the naan.
  • Immediately fold the naan together. Let it cook on both sides until it has those nice brown, spots.
  • Enjoy it fresh with tomato soup or dip it in ketchup!
