Piadina is a thin yeast-free Italian flatbread that you can fill with anything you like and enjoy for a light lunch, snack, or dinner.Our recipe is easy to make, with four simple ingredients: flour, water, olive oil, and salt.
To a bowl, add all the ingredients and mix with a spatula till you get a dough.
Transfer the dough on a worktop that you previously sprinkled with flour, and knead for 5 minutes until you have a smooth and soft dough ball.
Cut the dough in 4 equal pieces, then shape each piece into a ball. Cover with a cloth and let rest for 15 to 30 minutes.
With the help of a rolling pin, roll out the first ball into a thin, round flatbread (piadina). Rotate the dough often while you roll it out so that you get a nice round shape. You should aim for 3mm thick discs. Sprinkle the worktop and the dough with flour to prevent it from sticking.
Cook the piadina on a hot non-stick pan. The pan should be hot, but the heat/flame should be low. Let cook for about 1.5 - 2 minutes on each side.
When the flatbread is cooked, put it on a plate in between a clean kitchen cloth. This will help preserve moisture. Repeat with the other flatbreads till you are done.
