Piadina Romagnola

2 comments Oct 9th, 2010 | By | Category: Bread and Baking, Recipes

This is a recipe from my aunt Sue. She is a big fan of Italy and Italian cuisine. She often prepares Piadina Romagnola to accompany a meal or as a snack with a sip of wine. It is easy to make and you don’t even need an oven. The Piadina is pan fried.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

cooking time: 15 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • 18 ounces of flour
  • 9 ounces of water
  • 1 tbsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of salt and some pepper
  • half a cup of diced bacon
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 ounces of lard


I use a kitchen aid to make the dough.
Mix the dry parts of the dough together. Then add the water slowly while kneading the mixture. Add the lard and the bacon and make sure it is all kneaded well. The dough should be compact and not too wet. It should not stick very much on your hands.

Now take pieces the size of your fist and roll them out on a floured surface. Heat up a coated frying pan. Add a little bit of lard and fry the flat, pita like bread on each side for 3 minutes.

  1. They are beautiful! That is a speciality I’ve been meaning to make since years…



  2. I love this Tobias. I love the fact that it is pan fried and I don’t “knead” to wait while the dough rises.
