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!

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.
Divide the dough in 6 pieces; roll out each piece about 2-3mm thick.
Heat a dry, heavy pan or flat griddle over medium-high heat; cook each flatbread for 2 minutes per side.
Stuff with your favourite cured meat, cheese or roasted vegetables; fold and serve.
