The first of this month's Tuesdays With Dorie bake is Oasis Naan from the book "Baking With Julia" by Dorie Greenspan. Oasis Naan is a variation of the Persian Naan recipe found in the book and the two are not much different except for the added toppings of scallion and spices.
I decided to do things differently and do my own twist to the naan. I divided the recipe into 2 batches topping the first batch with za'atar and olive oil and the second one with sumac and feta cheese. I already used these combinations when I made pita breads last Easter and since we all loved it so much, I decided to do the same for the Oasis Naan.
The naan with za'atar is really delicious and herby with a little flavor kick from the sesame seeds. Definitely something I could use as base for pizza. The sumac and feta combo is my favorite one so far. I love how the mild creaminess of the feta balances out the tartness of the sumac. Such a divine combo!! Having this even on a slice of toast would be spectacular.
