Yield: 1 servings
|3½ cup||Unbleached all purpose flour|
|½ teaspoon||Baking powder|
|1 cup||Warm water; (105 to 115 degrees|
|¼ cup||Olive oil|
In a food processor or a heavy duty mixer, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the water and the oil. Process or mix until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 1 minute. Remove from the machine and knead dough briefly by hand on a lightly floured surface. Shape the dough into a ball.
Let rest covered with a bowl for 20 minutes to 1 hour (can also be made up to a day ahead of time. Store the dough in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator. Let the dough come to room temperature before proceeding).
Cut the dough into 8 pieces. Cover all but 1 piece with an overturned bowl.
On a lightly floured surface, shape the piece into a ball.
With a rolling pin, roll out the dough to an 8 inch circle. Place a piece of waxed paper on a large dinner plate. Place the circle of dough on top.
Roll out the remaining dough, stacking the circles on the plate with a piece of waxed paper in between them.
Heat a well seasoned pancake griddle or a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Test the temperature by flicking some droplets of water onto the surface. If the water sizzles and evaporates quickly, the griddle is ready.
Place a circle of dough on the griddle or skillet. Cook 30 seconds, or until the dough begins to stiffen and turns a golden brown. If it browns too rapidly, reduce the heat slightly. Flip the piadina and brown the other side. The piadina can be served immediately or wrapped in a piece of foil and kept warm in a low oven while you cook the remainder in the same way.
To serve, fold a piadina in half and fill it with various fillings such as slice prosciutto, mortadella, salami, a semi firm cheese such as Fontina Valle d'Aosta or soft fresh goats cheese and arugula.
