There is a sweet little restaurant chain in the San Francisco Bay Area called 'Tomatina', and when my Mom was visiting me there at some point, we stopped in their Walnut Creek store for a little break from shopping. The cute cafe sells traditional pizzas and pastas, but my Mom and I both ordered a 'piadine'...and fell in love! The piadinis are essentially cool, crispy salads served atop warm pizza dough...you eat them by folding them over like a sandwich. Truly to die for...try them!
Here is my version of a 'piadine', but you can pretty much make whatever kind of a little salad you'd like, then fold it into some flatbread. While Tomatina uses pizza dough, I bought naan to use instead, and with great results. The last few times I've baked my own pizza dough, but using the naan was MUCH for time-efficient (and you know I'm all about THAT these days...!)
* 8-12 ounces arugula...I buy the organic pre-packed 'rocket' mix from my local grocery
* 1 package of naan...about 4 flatbread
1) Mix salad ingredients and toss with dressing as desired.
