    Looks exactly like Indian Chapati (Roti).

    i thought piada was made with lard and baking powder, not oil and yest, and thicker

    I true.. Usually i made with lard but you can make with any fat you prefere. Coconut oil.. Nuts butter..

    OK. Ma non dirlo in Romagna

    Hahahha hai ragione.. Però le ricette sono modificabili in base alle proprie preferenze.. Un saluto

    Is it closer to a tortilla or closer to naan?

    Or neither, and more like a thin crust pizza without toppings?

    Is similar to tortilla. But tortilla is cruncy and maked with mais. This is make with normal flour. Do you try it?

    Sorry for my english. I was referring to mais=corn flour

    I grew up with My mothers all purpose white flour tortillas. There are corn tortillas made with corn flour, whole wheat flour tortillas, and I am sure there are tortillas made with other flours. All that said, Tortillas of whatever flour are still very good. Agreed?

    It's true. There are similar to tortillas. But a bit different. Because in this recepie I use the milk and yest, and the tortillas dosn't have these ingredients.

    This is just like a tortilla only we don't use yeast. we use a dash of baking powder instead. And yes I can use it for a pizza crust.

    I can suggest you to do without the salt, and add a bit of sugar in this recepie. And for finish a bit of nice nutella or your preferite marmelade. Let me know when you try. Best regard Eugenio
