More than Matzo: 10 Other Yummy Unleavened Breads

Piadina Bread

This specialty bread from the Romagna region of Italy was once considered poor man's fare, but it's experiencing a renaissance as an authentic Italian original. Easy to grill or prep on a griddle, piadina bread is typically made with flour, water and olive oil. This thin bread looks a bit like a cross between a pita and a tortilla. It has a chewy texture and mild flavor that lends itself well to the addition of your favorite herbs and seasonings.

A little hint if you're thinking about giving piadina bread a try: As with many unleavened bread recipes, it pays to get the pan or griddle very hot.
