About this recipe: Piadina is an Italian flatbread from the region of Emilia-Romagna. The traditional recipe calls for lard in the dough which you can replace with a good extra virgin olive oil. It is typically served stuffed with prosciutto and a local cheese called 'squaqquerone' but any soft cheese will work. Enjoy!


Makes: 6 flatbreads

  • 250g plain flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 110ml water
  • 100g lard or olive oil, as needed

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Mix in the water, a little at the time. Rub in the lard (or olive oil) until the dough comes together in a ball. Transfer onto a lightly floured work surface; knead for 10 minutes to achieve a smooth and elastic dough.
  2. Divide the dough in 6 pieces; roll out each piece about 2-3mm thick.
  3. Heat a dry, heavy pan or flat griddle over medium-high heat; cook each flatbread for 2 minutes per side.
  4. Stuff with your favourite cured meat, cheese or roasted vegetables; fold and serve.
