How to Make Italian Piadina Sandwich



Introduction: How to Make Italian Piadina Sandwich

In this instructable I will show you how you can make a piadina. Piadina is an Italian recipe that you can make for lunch. I like to eat piadina with Parma ham and mozzarella, but you can also eat it with other savory toppings (like chicken and vegetables) or with sweet toppings (like jam or Nutella). Just like with bread choose what you like best.

Just like with tortilla the basic ingredients for this Italian flatbread are: flour, water and a pinch of salt. Further this recipe contains olive oil and a little bit of baking soda to make the Piadina soft and fluffy. Just like focaccia or ciabatta this Piadina is a little thicker than a regular tortilla and more like a bread.
