I realize I’m answering an older question, but who knows, somebody may still be looking for piadina.  Copied from a book at the library a few years back.  I first had them in Cremona, years ago where they were wrapped around porchetta, some greens and a garlicky mayo.  Also good with soft chesses, procuitto or whatever…

3.5 cups AP flour
0.5 teaspoons baking flour
1-teaspoon salt
1-cup warm water
0.25 cups olive oil

1.   Combine dry ingredients
2.   Add water and oil
3.   Mix ‘till smooth
4.   Knead by hand for a minute or so
5.   Rest covered for 20 minutes to an hour
6.   Cut into eight pieces and shape into balls
7.   Roll into eight inch circles, stack between pieces of waxed paper

Heat a griddle (I use a cast iron skillet) ‘till hot (jumping water).  No oil.  Cook 1 minute or so each side ‘till golden brown and stiffened a bit.  Cover and keep warm while you do the rest of them.  I often just make half a batch.

If you see this what exactly is "baking flour"?  Might that be baking powder?

Well, baking flour would be flour one bakes with.  However, you're right.  That would be 1/2 tsp baking powder. 

Thanks!  I can't seem to open my original post to edit it.  I make these often.

1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp EVOO plus 1 tsp for oiling the dough
1/2 cup water
1 tsp lemon juice

I find it is better grilled on the bbque
