What Is Piadina?
Piadina Romagnola is a type of Italian flatbread. It is essentially a thin, bubbly bread similar to a tortilla that is stuffed and folded before being eaten like a sandwich. Folded in a semicircle, this thin, pan-fried Italian dish is prepared with a variety of filling ingredients. Savory variations can be made with ingredients such as cheese, smoked meat, and sweet variations with ingredients such as nutella and chocolate.
What Is The Difference Between Piadina and Tortilla?
The main differences are the fat used and the flour used. Tortilla generally makes use of lard, as that was the fat mostly available in Mexico when they were first invented. Piadinas, on the other hand, use olive oil - the classic Italian fat.
Tortillas traditionally use masa harina as their flour. This is a type of dried, ground cornmeal that allows for sweet flavors, as well as a crumbly texture. Piadina, though, makes use of regular wheat flour. It’s worth saying that tortillas can be made with wheat flour, though this isn’t the typical choice.
