The Romagna Piadina: A Truly Italian Delight


Dear readers, today I will introduce you to one of the most beloved and well-known culinary specialties of the Emilia-Romagna region: the piadina. This simple and flavorful flat bread is a true symbol of the Italian gastronomic tradition, appreciated worldwide for its versatility and its distinctive taste. Let’s discover together how to prepare a delicious homemade piadina.

Ingredients for 8 Piadinas

  • 300 g (2 cups) of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 150 ml (2/3 cup) of lukewarm water
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh yeast (or 1/2 teaspoon of dry yeast)


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, oil, and yeast. Add the lukewarm water and knead until you obtain a smooth and homogeneous dough.
  2. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into 8 equal parts and form them into balls. Roll out each ball with a rolling pin to obtain thin discs of about 15 cm (6 inches) in diameter.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan or a griddle over medium-high heat. Cook the piadinas for 2-3 minutes per side, until they are golden and slightly puffed.
  5. Transfer the cooked piadinas to a plate and cover them with a damp cloth to keep them soft.

Fillings and Tips

The piadina is an excellent base for multiple sweet and savory fillings. Here are some ideas:

  • Prosciutto crudo, arugula, and stracchino cheese
  • Mortadella, squacquerone cheese, and olives
  • Nutella, banana, and shredded coconut
  • Fruit jam and ricotta

For an even softer and lighter piadina, you can substitute part of the water with milk or yogurt. Additionally, you can add aromatic herbs, seeds, or spices to the dough to customize the flavor.

Enjoy your delicious piadina!
