Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1/2 piadina)
A piadina, a thin, chewy flatbread cooked over coals, is an ideal vehicle to showcase fresh produce. Our entree version is baked in the oven and then topped with a salad, juicy stone fruit, nuts, and grassy goat cheese.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons extravirgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 recipe Flatbread Dough
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal, divided
  • 2 teaspoons extravirgin olive oil, divided
  • 3 cups trimmed arugula (about 2 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced ripe plums (about 2)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons chopped unsalted almonds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup (about 2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Set aside.

  3. Punch Flatbread Dough down; cover and let rest 5 minutes. Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Working with one portion at a time (cover remaining dough), roll each half into a 12-inch circle on a floured surface. Place each dough circle on a baking sheet sprinkled with 1 tablespoon cornmeal. Brush each portion with 1 teaspoon oil, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Pierce entire surface liberally with a fork. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until crisp.

  4. Add arugula, plums, and almonds to vinegar mixture; toss gently to coat.

  5. Remove flatbreads to cutting board; top each with half of arugula mixture and 1/4 cup goat cheese. Cut each piadina in half.
