Homemade Cheesy Piadinas

The word Piadina sounds pretty new to me. But after checking, it is actually the name for an Italian flatbread. And it is usually used in making rolls, with either sweet or savory fillings. If omit the yeast from the recipe, it will became a tortilla. Tortilla is a Mexican flatbread which is quite similar but much thinner. I'm glad I've learned something new again. And here's the recipe
Ingredients :
2 cups  all purpose flour
1 tbsp   sugar
1/2 tspn  salt
1 egg
130ml   warm milk
1 tbsp   yeast
1/2 cup  spring onion, thinly sliced
100gm   shredded cheddar cheese

Method :
(1) combine warm milk together with yeast and set aside for 10mins.
(2) in another big bowl, combine flour, sugar & salt together and mix well.
(3) add milk mixture & egg into dry ingredients once it's ready, till form a soft dough.
(4) next add in cheese & spring onion and knead till well combined.
(5) then set aside to rest for an hour or till double in size.
(6) when it's done, place dough to a slightly floured working table and knead till smooth.
(7) then divide into 6 portions.

(8) now, preheat a non-stick pan with a few drops of cooking oil.
(9) roll the dough out flat and then place it to the frying pan.
(10) cook both sides till the dough is brown but still soft.

The addition of cheese & spring onion is simply amazing. What do you think by using them in making thin crust pizza? Hmmm...mmmm... Salivating...
