Gluten Free Piadina -- Italian Flat Bread

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LARavenscroft

This is an adaptation of Piadina - Italian Flat Bread for Everything!. I'm still in the search for a great pizza (I can't eat wheat or yeast) and this recipe appealed to me. I've scaled it down and used it tonight for a pizza -- it was pretty good -- still not quite the same. I can't wait to use it for sandwiches.

I thank you so much for this post! I left out the rosemary and garlic powder, rolled it a bit thinner and it became the closest thing to pita bread I have EVER taisted :) Even my husband who was raised on pita said it taisted SO good but it just didn't have the pocket (he ate 3 of them! and he's not celiac!) Look out babaghanouj ,here I come! Thanks again!
