Grilled Vegetable & Mozzarella Piadina

Piadina's are probably my favourite Italian street food, they are so delicious. If you want to make your own piadina bread, it's a bit more complicated, but well worth it.

You will need:
  • Piadina bread (recipe for the bread included)
  • Eggplant
  • Mushroom
  • A tomato
  • A clove of garlic
  • A red onion
  • Fresh basil
  • Rucola
  • Olive oil 
  • Bufala mozzarella
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. To make your own piadina bread, in a bowl combine 2 cups of flour, 2 and a half tablespoons of oil, 3/4 of a cup of milk (or water), a pinch of salt and 1/4 of a teaspoon of baking soda
  2. Knead the dough well
  3. Break off a small piece rolled into a ball and flatten it using a rolling pin
  4. Cook it in a frying pan piercing many holes in the dough and flip it until either side is cooked
  1. Wash your veggies
  2. Thinly slice the eggplant, mushrooms, onions and tomatoes, crush the garlic
  3. In a frying pan with some olive oil, cook the onions, garlic, mushrooms and eggplant in some olive oil with salt and pepper
  4. Once they are cooked, add the tomatoes until the soften slightly
  5. Place mozzarella on the bread and top it with the grilled vegetables, rucola and fresh basil leaves
  6. Wrap up the sandwich and toast it in a grill or frying pan so the cheese melts
