IMG_5116First of all, I wish you all a Happy New Year, full of joy, happiness, and many tasty food experiences! After all the sweet treats devoured during the last month, I’m back to my bread baking. You all know that I love any kind of bread, mainly because it’s a part of my culture (and because it’s so good!).

Today I prepared some Piadina, a flat bread originally from Italy. Simple, rustic and very good especially when still warm.

A big thank you to Angie from The Novice Gardener  for this Fiesta Friday #101 and thanks to our co-host’s for this week Jhuls and Mr Fitz.

Serves: 4 large Piadinas or 6 small Piadinas

Ingredients: (for the Piadina)

  • 500g of plain flour/all purpose flour/wheat flour
  • 7g of baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of caster sugar
  • 50ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • 250ml of full fat milk  or water (more or less depending of the quality of the flour)

Method: (easy)

  1. In the mixing bowl of the stand mixer add the flour, the sugar, the salt and the baking powder.
  2. Start to mix the all the ingredients with the hook of your stand mixer on a low speed.
  3. Pour the olive oil and mix.
  4. Pour the milk and mix on a high speed until the dough detaches from the bowl.
  5. The dough is soft.
  6. Remove the dough from the bowl and wrap it with a plastic and put it in the fridge for 1 hour (during this 1 hour, you can prepare the ingredients for the stuffing).

Ingredients: (for the stuffing)

  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 2 yellow bell peppers
  • 1 red onion (chopped)
  • Feta cheese
  • Mozzarella
  • Black olives
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of black pepper


  1. Wash the bell peppers.
  2. Cut off the top of the bell peppers.
  3. Cut in two and remove the ribs and seeds.
  4. Slice into thin slices.
  5. In a large pan add a few drops of extra virgin olive oil and sauté on a medium heat the sliced bell peppers.
  6. Add the salt and the black pepper.
  7. When they are soft and tender removes them from the heat and set aside.

Final Procedure:

  1. Flour a clean surface.
  2. Remove the dough from the refrigerator.
  3. Cut the dough into 4 balls.
  4. Flatten the 4 balls with a rolling pin as a round shape and set aside.
  5. Cook over a medium heat each Piadina into a nonstick pan (poke with a fork the top of the dough).
  6. When the bottom is golden brown, flip the Piadina and cook the other side.
  7. Proceed the same way for the rest of the dough.
  8. Stuff the warm Piadina with bell peppers, onion and feta (drizzle with olive oil) or with bell peppers, mozzarella, black olives.
  9. Eat immediately.

PS: Much better if you make it by hands.

Bon dégustation.

PS: You can stuff your Piadina’s with any toppings that you like!!

    As Salaamu Alaykum Linda, I love Italian food, infact it’s almost an every day occurrence in one form or another. Pizza, pasta etc are the our obvious faves and I’ve got a classic soup coming to my blog soon in shaa Allah. I definitely want to try more Italian dishes that aren’t as famous and these flatbread sandwiches looks like a great way to start. Jazaaki Allahu khayran for the recipe.

    1. Wa Alaykum Assalam Umm Hamza, I agree with you I love Italian food too 🙂 This bread is so good and very easy to prepare. I suggest you to try it with a shorba on the side, I’m sure you will like it InshAllah. Wa shukran for your trust, I really appreciate. Have a nice weekend! 🙂
