Char-grilled zucchini and mozzarella piadine


You'll need

500 gm (3 1/3 cups) “00” flour 100 gm lard, melted For brushing: olive oil 2 buffalo mozzarella (about 200gm each), coarsely torn To serve: coarsely torn basil   Marinated zucchini 3 zucchini, thinly sliced lengthways on a mandolin 120 ml extra-virgin olive oil 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 2 small red chillies, thinly sliced 2 tbsp lemon juice

Method

  • 01
  • Combine flour, lard and 2 tsp sea salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook and mix to combine. With motor running, gradually add 200ml hot water, then knead until smooth and elastic (2-3 minutes).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for marinated zucchini, preheat a char-grill pan over high heat, brush zucchini slices on both sides with a little oil and char-grill in batches, turning once, until tender and golden (1 minute each side). Heat remaining oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add garlic and chilli, cook to infuse (1-2 minutes), remove from heat, add lemon juice, season to taste, add zucchini and set aside to marinate.
  • 03
  • Preheat oven to 120C. Divide dough into 6 pieces and, working with one piece at a time, roll out into a rough 3mm-thick rectangle, brush both sides with a little olive oil and cook in a char-grill pan over high heat, turning once, until golden (2-3 minutes), then place on an oven tray lined with baking paper and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining dough. Serve piadine scattered with marinated zucchini, mozzarella and torn basil.
