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.

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. :)

Quick and easy. But unappealing texture. Kind of bland flavor. Won't be making it again. I guess I'm partial to yeast.

Very tasty and quick, too! Next time I will cut the salt in half, or leave it out entirely, as I found it too salty. I ended up with 12 pieces of flat bread, and they were rather thick. Next time I'll try to roll them so they're thinner.
