The Romagna piadina is one of the most famous Romagna specialties, it is a thin sheet made of flour, lard (or olive oil), salt and water with a rounded shape that was traditionally cooked on a terracotta or metal plate placed directly on the embers which is then served alone to accompany the dishes or stuffed according to personal taste. Piadina from Romagna, once the food of the poor, is now one of the traditional Italian agri-food products of the Emilia Romagna region and is famous all over the world and appreciated by all. When I find myself passing by the areas of Rimini, I have my fixed stops to go and eat the wraps and although the fillings to choose from are countless, I prefer to stuff it with rocket, raw ham and squacquerone. The recipe that I propose is that of the Romagna piadinas that is closest to the flavor of those I have tasted in recent years, even if each area has its own variant, so I also imagine every family, I hope you like it :)

In a bowl, put the flour, salt, baking soda and lard. Start working everything by gradually pouring the water.

Work the dough vigorously for about ten minutes, until it forms a smooth and fairly firm dough, then cover with a cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Now divide the dough into 8 pieces of equal weight.

With the help of a rolling pin, roll out each ball to obtain a thin sheet with a rounded shape.

Heat the Romagna text and, once hot, start cooking one piadina at a time.

Prick the piadina with a fork on the air bubbles that will begin to form on its surface during cooking.

Cook the wraps for a couple of minutes on each side, then place them gradually on a plate, one on top of the other.

Then stuff the Romagna wraps with meats, cheeses, vegetables or whatever you like best.
