Piadina (Wiki) is a very traditional bread/sandwich from Romagna (Wiki), a historical area that corresponds to the south-eastern portion of the Emilia-Romagna region. Piadine make very tasty sandwiches and they are often filled with cheese (squacquerone or stracchino are among the favorites), cold meats and/or vegetables. The filling that I prefer is the most classic of all: stracchino, prosciutto crudo and rocket salad. Enjoy!
Sharing this recipe with What’s Cooking Wednesday by Cristi.
Ingredients (make 5 piadine):
250 gms flour
1 gm soda bicarbonate
50 to 75 gms lard (you can substitute this with some extra virgin olive oil)
1/2 tsp salt
Water and white wine in equal quantity, enough to make a smooth dough
Put all the ingredients in a mixer with a dough hook and knead for a couple of minutes, till the dough comes together and looks smooth (add the water and wine little by little). You can also do this by hand but it will require a longer kneading time.
Serve it warm with the cheese melting… yum!
