Tiny tasty bread – pizzi leccesi, traditional Salento food

Alt="Pizzi leccesi"

Pizzi leccesi are small and tasty bread filled with black olives, cherry tomatoes and onion. They are really delicious and remind me of all my trips in Salento.

I pizzi, like every product of my land, have ancient and peasant origins. In fact these small rustic bread constituted the lunch of the farmers who used to spend long days outside their home, in the fields. Easy to prepare and with typically Mediterranean ingredients.
