Piadina Recipe



Piadina

Before I come across this recipe I didn’t know that Italians also had flatbread. Piadina or piada is a thin Italian flatbread, typically prepared in the Romagna region (Forlì-Cesena, Ravenna and Rimini). It is usually made with white flour, lard or olive oil, salt and water (source: wikipedia).

The recipe is quite simple and basic, and easy to prepare and eat! I made extras and froze them.

Ingredients
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon lard (I used olive oil)
Pinch of salt
Water

Method
1.      Knead the flour and salt with the lard (oil) and enough water to make a smooth and pliable dough.
2.      Form a ball, wrap in plastic and chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes
3.      Divide the dough into two and form two round balls. Flatten and roll until about a ¼ inch thick 
4.      Cook on a hot non stick pan, turning often and flattening air pockets as they form.

  3. Italian tortillas, no? These are delicious in so many ways, add some flavorings to the dough, or add toppings and fold or wrap to enjoy. Yum!

  12. Piadine do sound so easy indeed! And the result is awesome! I will certainly try it. It will be so much healthier than the bought Mexican tortillas I use as wraps...
