All you need for this recipe is Grands canned biscuits, butter, and garlic. For the equipment, you need a rolling pin, skillet or griddle, and a basting brush.

It’s best to have the biscuit dough at room temperature. They’ll roll flat easier and cook better if you’ll allow the biscuits to come to room temperature. 

With a rolling pin roll each biscuit out as thin as you can get it. It should be at least 6-inches in diameter or larger. If it’s not at least 6-inches roll it some more. You need it to be really thin. Otherwise, it’ll puff up too much when cooking it.

Typically, canned biscuits have enough fat in them that you won’t need any flour on your rolling pin to prevent them from sticking. However, if you find the dough sticking simply dust a little on the dough and the rolling pin. 

naan from biscuit dough


Heat a skillet or griddle on low. The naan needs to cook slowly so the inside gets done. Therefore, put your stove eye on the lowest it’ll go. I used a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet and did not need spray to prevent the dough from sticking to the pan.

Next, cook on the first side for 1.5 to 2 minutes. You can lift the edge to see if it’s brown. Then, flip to the other side and cook another 1.5 to 2 minutes. Your stove low setting may be hotter or not as hot as mine. Therefore, it’s important for you to check and test to make sure it’s brown before flipping.

As soon as they came off the pan, I brushed some melt, garlic butter over the hot bread.

  • My boys enjoy naan hot with melted garlic butter.
  • They also use them as taco shells for and Tex-Mex filling. When we’re eating them as taco cheese I don’t brush them with garlic butter
  • We use them to make pizzas.
  • Cut into smaller pieces, they make great dippers for hummus or cheese dip.

Store leftovers in an airtight zip-top bag at room temperature.
