I guess I can call it Naan

Hello Guys, 

Here's a bread that I made a couple of days ago and I thought I'd share it with you. Im just going to jump into the recipe. 

The following are the ingredients I used:

- 200 g bread flour.

- 120 g room temp water (60% hydration)

- 1/2 tsp instant yeast

- 1/4 cup greek yogurt 

- 4 g salt 

- 3 g sugar (optinal) 

- 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil.

I mixed water, yeast, yogurt, salt, sugar together, put it in my stand mixer bowl, added the dough and mix on low speed for about 3 min. then i added the oil and mixed for another 3 mins. l then let the dough relax for 30 min and did three stretch and folds at 30 min intervals and then put the whole thing in the fridge. 

The next day I took the dough out of the fridge 2 hours before baking. divided it into balls and let them proof for about 2 hours. I preheated my oven to the max 550 F. when i was ready to bake, i took one of the balls and stretched it like if it was pizza dough (not too thick and not too thin) and poked it with a fork a couple of times in the middle and then placed in my 550F oven for about 5 min (or untill it puffs up and browns). As soon as it came out, i brushed it with some melted salted butter and it was soooo delicious.
