Coppa-and-Gorgonzola Piadine

  • ACTIVE: 35 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 HR
  • SERVINGS: 12 piadine
  • STAFF-FAVORITE

Star chef Mario Batali’s terrific flatbread sandwiches are topped with slices of creamy Gorgonzola dolce and coppa as soon as they’re taken off the griddle.

dough

  1. 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  3. 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  4. 1/4 cup lard or solid vegetable shortening, at room temperature
  5. 1 cup water

toppings

  1. 1 1/2 pounds Gorgonzola dolce, thinly sliced
  2. 1/2 pound sliced spicy coppa
  3. 2 thinly sliced Bartlett pears
  1. MAKE THE DOUGH In a standing mixer fitted with the dough hook, blend the flour, baking soda, salt and lard at medium-low speed until the mixture resembles coarse meal. With the machine on, add the water in a thin stream and mix until the dough forms a ball. Increase the speed to medium and knead for 5 minutes.
  2. Roll the dough into an 8-inch log and cut into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and arrange on a baking sheet. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat a cast-iron griddle over moderate heat. On an unfloured work surface, roll out each ball of dough to a thin 7-inch round. Working in batches, griddle the piadine just until lightly browned on the bottom, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and brown the other side, 1 minute more. Keep the piadine warm in foil in a preheated oven while you cook the rest.
  4. ADD THE TOPPINGS Arrange the warm piadine on a platter or plates. Top with the sliced Gorgonzola, coppa and pears and serve.

Suggested Pairing

A sparkling wine, like an Italian Lambrusco.
