Piadini With Prosciutto, Tomatoes, And Arugula

When I make piadini bread, I usually make a double batch and once the bread has cooled I freeze what I do not plan to use immediately in individual bags. Next time I am in the mood for a panini I can pull out my piadini bread from the freezer, thaw and use it with any fillings I am craving at the time. This particular sandwich is probably our favorite and we use these ingredients together for other sandwiches also, as well as to top our pizza.
