Why does the piadina make bubbles? This seemingly simple question hides behind it a world of culinary chemistry and tradition that has its roots in the history of Italian food and wine. There piadinaa symbolic dish of Romagna, is loved for its versatility and its unique flavour, but they are precisely the bubbles which form during cooking to give it that characteristic texture that we appreciate so much.

Because the piadina makes bubbles

The formation of bubbles in the piadina during cooking is a phenomenon that can be explained through food chemistry and a little physics. When the piadina is placed on the hot plate, the water present in the dough begins to heat up, turning into steam. This steam, trying to escape, pushes the dough upwards, thus creating the characteristic bubbles.

Another key factor is the presence of bicarbonate or chemical yeast in the dough, ingredients which, reacting under the action of heat, produce further gas, contributing to the formation of bubbles. It is interesting to note how the Romagna culinary tradition has been able to exploit these chemical reactions to obtain a piadina with an unmistakable taste and consistency.

There quality of the flour used and the relationship between the ingredients they are equally crucial. A flour with a good gluten content favors the elasticity of the dough, allowing the bubbles to expand without breaking, thus keeping the piadina soft and crunchy at the same time.
