Spinach-Pecan Piadine

Piadina is a traditional Italian flatbread most commonly prepared as a simple dough then cooked on a griddle. It may be topped with a variety of ingredients & folded in half to create delicious sandwiches if you will. Whole Wheat Pizza Dough may be used to replicate the idea & baking the flatbread in the oven gives the opportunity for the cheese to melt for wonderful added flavor. Spinach-Pecan Piadine is a straightforward approach to the classic that is certainly filling & satisfying. Learn how to make them in your very own kitchen.

6-oz fresh Mozzarella cheese
2 cups fresh spinach leaves
1/4 cup chopped toasted pecans
