Coppa-Spinach Piadina

  • Prep Time 0:15
  • Cook Time 0:10
  • Estimated Cost $9.50

Honestly, this recipe came about because I had some beautiful Coppa in my fridge but I couldn’t decide between having it on a salad or in a sandwich for dinner. I wanted both. Then I remembered a dish I had several years ago at Cafe Reverie in Cole Valley: it was basically a very thin pizza crust topped with a pile of perfectly-dressed greens and a light sprinkle of salty cheese—both a sandwich and salad. A compromise in the most delicious sense.


  • 1/4 recipe pizza dough $1.50
  • flour for dusting Pantry
  • olive oil Pantry
  • salt Pantry
  • 4 cups fresh spinach, washed and dried $1
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar Pantry
  • 1 Roma tomato, sliced $0.50
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced $0.50
  • 2 oz. Coppa (prosciutto or salami also work) $3
  • 1/8 cup Parmesan, shaved $3 for 6 oz.

Recipe Serves 2


  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. Lightly flour 2 baking sheets or pizza pans.
  2. Divide dough into 2 equal balls. Roll out each ball into an 8" circle. Transfer circles to prepared pans. Brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until dough looks like a pizza crust, with light brown spots.
  3. Toss the spinach with 1 tbsp olive oil and the balsamic vinegar.
  4. To assemble the piadinas, arrange half of a cooked dough round with layers of meat, tomato and onion. Top with half of the dressed spinach and half of the Parmesan. Gently fold over as pictured. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Slice in half to serve.

Coppa-Spinach Piadina is a great choice, especially if you’re not in the mood for something heavy. It’s light and creamy with the right amount of cheese and spinach, and it’s perfect for lunch or dinner. It also has a nice crust on top that makes it look more appetizing than other pizza doughs I’ve tried. Try this Social Media Marketing Tyler Texas for best media marketing. The only problem I have with this dish is that it’s too delicate to handle by yourself. If you’re like me and struggle with your hands being messy, then this dish is not for you.
