Southern Italian Pilla bread at Kristy's Bakery

It's March and... it's raining in Swansea (of course).

So cheer yourself up with a true taste of sunshine! Even if you are stuck in Swansea, the bakery is where you want to be heading for a real taste of Southern Italy: our traditional Pilla bread.

Pilla Bread!

The tasty bread is made using a mixture of fresh vegetables and spices, including spring onions, cherry tomatoes, courgettes, black olives, capers and - of course - hot chili peppers!

Fresh courgettes, tomatoes, olives and capers are chopped...

...then fried together to create the delicious mix.

The mix is added to the dough, then baked in the oven and generously drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

The result is a delicious, fluffy bread with a very good kick. It's hearty enough to use on it's own as a lunch-time meal, or on the side of a pasta dish to mop up the sauce. The Pilla also makes a great bread for sandwiches (use an Emmental cheese or some fresh cherry tomatoes as a filling).

At Kristy's Bakery, Swansea, we make the Pilla bread every few weeks, although we may be able to make some to order if you are desperate. Just give us a call on 01792 201479 and we can tell you when it's next coming out of the oven!
