Grilled Peach Piadina

Grilled Peach Piadina

Piadina is a thin italian flatbread, typically prepared in the Romagna region.  There is no yeast and it is quick to make.  In some recipes, the olive oil is substituted with lard, we stuck with oil as we didn’t have lard in our fridge.  The dough was traditionally cooked on a terracotta dish (‘Teggia”); today flat pans or griddles are commonly used.

The toppings are endless……sweet or savoury, whatever takes your fancy.

For the piadinas

  • 500g plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 tsp baking powder
  • 80 ml olive oil
  • 275 ml water

For the topping (1 piadina)

  • drizzle of oil/large knob of butter
  • 2 peaches, chopped
  • splash of rum (otional)

To serve

  • Fresh mint
  • Fresh basil
  • 3 tbsp greek yoghurt
  • Drizzle of hot honey


For the piadina

  1. Set your Egg for a direct cook at 200°C with just your stainless steel grid.
  2. To make the dough, place your flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Mix together.
  3. Add the oil and the water. Mix it all together for a few minutes.  You’re looking for a soft dough.  It should be soft but not sticky.
  4. Cover the dough with cling film and leave to rest for 30 minutes at room temperature.
  5. When ready to cook, heat a nonstick skillet on your Egg..
  6. Now fry your piadina for about 1 minute a side or until it bubbles, Repeat this twice, pricking with a fork.
  7. The piadina will take about 4 minutes in all to cook.  It should be a nice golden colour and have the characteristic small charred spots on the surface..

For the topping

  1. Place a cast iron skillet onto the Egg.  Heat up the oil or butter in the skillet.
  2. Add your chopped peaches. Cook them, stirring occasionally. You’re looking for the peaches to caramelise,
  3. Once you have some caramelisation, you can add a drop of rum or juice of your choice, cook for a further 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. You’re looking to cook the peaches until they soften

    To assemble the dish

    1. Place a good dollop of the yoghurt onto your piadina.
    2. Top with the cooked peaches.
    3. Sprinkle over some fresh mint and basil.  Drizzle with honey.
