Naan - keto style (a flexible flatbread egg and dairy free)

I'm always on the lookout for a bread substitute that doesn't have egg or dairy (I'm sensitive to these and need to keep consumption low).

My first batch of this was - WONDERFUL. The flatbread is flexible and moist without being gummy, and has a good smell and flavor. It puffed up when being cooked and stayed a bit fluffy when cooled. Mostly coconut flour with some almond flour and lots of psyllium, although the smell and flavor wasn't strong with the psyllium - I think the yeast and coconut flour covered it well.

It's going to be my new bread staple. Makes great sandwiches.

The recipe says it can be frozen, so I tried that - defrosted without any change.

ADDED: the recipe says to roll out to slightly thick. A better description would be medium-thin. The thinner ones baked more evenly and more quickly - but still puffed up nicely.

The site has a recipe for pizza crust (same ingredients except no almond flour). I'm thinking the naan bread would make great thick pizza crust.

BTW - mine didn't have any black spots from cooking. Just browned. Looks much better than the pictures with the recipe.
