Food Recipes Chicken-Pesto Flatbread Sandwiches 3.2 (15) Add your rating & review A piadina is an Italian sandwich typically made on flatbread, but here, hot, crispy pizza dough stands in for flatbread, creating a delicious new classic. Tucked inside these piadinas is fresh mozzarella, baby arugula, and pesto-tossed rotisserie chicken. The pesto here is homemade, but if you're tight on prep time, store bought will work well, too. Cooking tip: Don't skip the steaming of the dough once cooked—it's essential to make the cooked rounds easily bend. Since there's already arugula salad in the sandwich, why not pair with green beans, tomatoes, or marinated cucumbers? Almost any vegetable will play well alongside.
