Homemade Italian Flatbread Piadina Romagnola Recipe

What is a glorious match!?! A warm Piadina Romagnola filled with some slices of tasty Prosciutto Crudo, creamy and melted Squacquerone Cheese and Arugula paired with a Glass of Sangiovese Red Wine.

Even if it is not easy to find some of these ingredients outside of Italy, let’s treat yourself making Piadina Romagnola from scratch (quick and easy recipe below), and then fill it with what you prefer most and enjoy!

High acidity and moderate alcohol make Sangiovese a very food-friendly red wine. In specific, “E be di Smembar” Sangiovese Superiore brings to mind ripe berries, like raspberries, as well as the purple-leaf plum. It is fresh to the palate, with good minerality and sweet tannins.

It is an Organic Wine produced in a small, passionate, and family-owned wine producer located in a hilly terrain a few hundred meters high southwest of Cesena (Center of Italy – Emilia Romagna Region).

“E be di Smembar” Sangiovese Superiore Red Wine is imported to Denmark by Vinimondo.dk. Drop by the new Vinimondo.dk showroom to taste or buy it.

  • In the meantime, on high heat, warm a griddle or no – stick cast iron skillet. When it is hot, gently lay the first piadina on it. Lower the heat. When the bubbles start to form on the surface, turn the piadina very carefully and cook on the other side for a few seconds, until lightly golden.
