Next, take the cherry tomatoes and cut them into halves. I used about three cherry tomatoes for each flat bread.

Then take the ham out of the fridge, along with the rucola.

Prepare your rucola in a bowl and season it with salt, black pepper and oregano. Don’t forget to add a generous drizzle of a high quality extra virgin olive oil.

Tips

To avoid your flat bread from breaking, I suggest you to place the flat bread open on your hot pan. Leave it to toast for around 3 minutes, and then using a spatula close it by flipping half over the other side. If you try to close the piadina when it’s uncooked and cold, chances are that it will break like it happened with my first one. For more piadina recipes ideas click here.
