Ingredients

1x fresh pizza dough ball (divided in half)

8-10 slices prosciutto

1x ball burrata cheese

Arugula

Olive oil

Optional: sliced red onion

Instructions

  1. Cut one fresh pizza dough ball in half and roll each half into a ball. Let dough rest under a tea towel for about 20 minutes (this helps greatly when rolling the dough).
  2. To make the piadina, roll out each dough ball to about 8-10 inches; the dough will be fairly thin.
  3. Preheat a large skillet or frying pan to medium high heat.
  4. Brush the pan with a little olive oil (use a paper towel if you don’t have a brush).
  5. When the pan is hot, place one piadina at a time in the pan, pricking the dough with a fork quickly to keep the dough from bubbling up. If the dough starts to bubble up, poke the bubbles with the fork and continue cooking.
  6. Cook about 3-5 minutes per side or until starting to turn golden brown on each side.
  7. Repeat with the next dough.
  8. To make each Piadina sandwich, fold each cooked dough in half and fill with layers of arugula, burrata cheese, prosciutto and red onion (if using).
