Ingredients for Naan Pie dough
  • ¼ Cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons honey

  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 4 Cups Flour (I used 2 Cups bread flour and 2 cups Soft white wheat)
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
Ingredients for Salmon Pie Filling
  • 2- 6 ounce cans Wild Alaskan Salmon
  • 1 ½ Cups Cooked Rice (I used Jasmine white)
  • ½ Cup Corn (Fresh or frozen)
  • 1 ½ Cups Spinach, wilted and juice squeezed out*
  • ¼ Cup green onion, chopped
  • ½ Cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Ingredients for Flavored Butter
  • 1 Stick butter
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Parsley, Chopped
  1. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a cup mix the water and yeast. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the yeast mixture, milk, honey and Greek yogurt to the flour. Mix until combined.
  4. Cover and let sit at room temperature while the filling is prepared.
  5. Drain the salmon and lightly shred with a fork. Keep the ingredients separate as you will layer them into your pie.
  6. Prepare the flavored butter. Melt the butter in a saucepan or in a microwave. Add the rest of the ingredients.
  7. Roll out the dough to about ¼” thickness and brush it with some of the flavored butter. Layer on the filling: Rice, flavored butter, corn, spinach, green onion, salmon and cheese.
  8. Sprinkle more flavored butter on top. Roll out a circle for the top and seal the edges. Cut a few slits on top to release steam.
  9. Brush with the leftover butter and bake in a preheated 350 F oven for about 15-20 minutes depending on what size your pie is.
  10. Serve warm with tzatziki sauce, recipe follows.
To wilt spinach: heat a pan with a teaspoon of oil on medium heat. Add spinach, cover and let cook for about 2 minutes. Place the wilted spinach in a paper towel lined sieve and squeeze out the liquid.
