Piadina - #BreadBakers

I know that you're looking at these and thinking, "Piadina? She made tortillas!" And you're certainly not wrong. Depending on where you look, the recipe for a piadina, this Italian flatbread, is almost identical to that of a tortilla. The piadina is popular in the Romagna region of Italy and uses lard and/or olive oil. It's typically filled with cured meats and cheeses but a sweet version with Nutella is also popular.

Thank you Anshie for hosting our Italian themed Bread Bakers this month! See all the other Italian breads below. 

Yield: 5


225g flour
1t baking powder
1t salt
1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
112 grams water


Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add oil then enough water to make a soft but non-sticky dough.

Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover and let rest for at least 30 minutes.

After the dough has rested, divide into 5 balls. Roll each ball out to an approximately 7 inch circle.

Heat a flat bottomed skillet over medium heat. Brush lightly with oil and cook each piadina a minute or two on each side. Serve immediately. 

 #BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. Follow our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated each month on this home page.

We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient.

  1. This will be so good rolled up with some yummy cured meats and fresh tomatoes! Love it. Thank you for participating this month.

  2. That bread looks perfect to me and I'd love to fill one up for lunch!

  3. Love these piadinas, and your suggestion of topping them with Nutella!

  4. These look wonderful. One person's tortilla is another's piadina! Fill it with antipasti, and there's no mistaking it for a tortilla.

  5. love these flat breads. I would love to have it with some soup or salad.
