READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Brandess

Recipe Origin: Republic of San Marino, Italy. This makes tremendously great pizza crust for pizza rustica or any of your favorite toppings. You can also use this bread like a focaccia. This bread is very versatile for sandwiches, Indian style tacos, salad toppings or just about anything else you can think of. Simply grill them up and top with your imagination.

Very easy. I divided the dough into 8 pieces, and my husband grilled them! I topped those babies with a lovely bruschetta mix. Yummy yum yum. Thanks for posting. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl place all dry ingredients, mix well. Make a well and add oil and water. Slowly incorporate the flour into the liquid until it forms a dough. If you need to add more water, add a tablespoon at a time until the dough is easy to handle.
  2. Knead for a short time until dough is smooth. Cut into 4 or 5 pieces. Roll out thin to about an 8" circle (the thinner the better).
  3. Heat a large skillet on a high flame, when hot reduce heat, brush with oil and place flat bread in skillet, prick bread with a fork. Turn over brush with more oil and cook other side. The bread will cook quickly, when done remove and repeat steps with rest of bread.
  4. Very good to eat with sauteed greens such as escarole. This recipe makes about four or five 8" to 10" Piadinas.
