Flatbread cooked in a pan, the piadina is called “bread of the poor” in Italy.
It can however be plentiful!
500 g flour
180 ml warm water (or milk)
10 g salt
2 g baking soda
75 g lard
Mix all ingredients.
Knead the dough for 10 minutes.
Form a ball and let stand 1/2 hour.
The filling (you can fill with what you want…)
Ham (cut very fine)
Cut into 8 equal size balls.
Spread out to the size of your pan.
N.B. : I use a 22 cm crepe pan.
The dough is not very easy to spread and should be fine.
Put the uncooked piadine on a baking mat, inserting a sheet of parchment paper between each.
What I love about a piadine meal is that eachone cooks his own piadina, for garnish as desired.
So everyone helps!
Cook the first side of the piadina on medium/high heat.
Once the piadina is returned, start to fill it.
Spreading topping over the entire surface or concentrated on the half, everyone has their own method.
Fold in half and eat.. with your fingers!
If you don’t eat all of them salty, try chocolate or… Nutella.
