Piadini is a traditional flatbread from the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. Using only a handful of ingredients, it takes about 2 minutes to cook.
To make, add 40g slightly melted butter to 500g flour and combine with about one cup of tepid, salted wsater.
Knead well for 10 minutes, then wrap and leave for 30 minutes.
Break off small pieces, roll out and about 10cm wide.
In Italy these would be placed on a hot testa, but you can do it on the grill or use a grid on the coals.
Serve it with olive jam, cheese and Parma ham. Or try prosciutto or salami and cheese, or olives, or some good olive oil infused with rosemary and garlci.
Piadinii also goes well with roasted red peppers, a great tapenade or pesto, tomatoes with mozzarella, basil, olive oil and olives or hummus.
You could make it into a sandwich by folding in any ingredients you want, such as chicken, roasted red peppers, mozzarella, and pesto
Or drizzle with marinara sauce and mozzarella, slide into a hot oven and make a mini pizza out of it.
