Other Products

250 ml of water at room temperature
1/3 teaspoon of baking soda


To prepare the dough put the flour, salt, and baking soda into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and pour in the olive oil and water. Use the end of a wooden spoon to mix everything together to create a dough. If the dough is too wet, add a sprinkling of flour. Piadina dough must be soft, but not sticky.

Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and work it with your hands for about 5 minutes until smooth.

Cover the dough with cling wrap and let it rest at room temperature for about 45 minutes.

Divide the dough into 6 smaller balls and roll them out with a rolling pin. Try to get them as thin as possible.

Cook the piadina one at a time in a preheated non-stick pan. Turn after a minute or when bubbles form. Cook each side twice, pricking here and there with a fork. The piadina must cook for about 2 minutes per side (4 minutes in total), until slightly golden in colour with the characteristic small dark spots on the surface.

Fill with sliced chorizo, rocket, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Piadina is delicious with anything, even on its own!
