Undoubtedly, ideal for meetings with friends or family, simple meals and why not, on summer evenings with a very cold beer. Cheer up for this amazing whole wheat version!

Scaccia is a typical Sicilian food (Italy). Which consists of a thin rectangular dough that is filled with different types of ingredients. Like for example, cheese, tomato, onion, parsley, spinach, ricotta, calabrese, etc. Next, once filled, the dough is folded over on itself 3 or 4 times, thus leaving a kind of stuffed rectangular bread.

Let’s talk a bit about the recipe:

Preparing this scaccia is simple because there are no complications in terms of its preparation, and it has more than one advantage. The ingredients are frequently used and just a few, easy to find in any market. In addition, you can change any of them according to preference or need without inconvenience.

About the ingredients:

At Integralisimo, the whole wheat flour used is 100% organic whole wheat, finely ground (unless it is mentioned). In general, depending on the brand, it can absorb more or less liquid. For this reason I recommend incorporating the liquids gradually. As a result, keep in mind that the lower the volume, the lower the final product.

There is a wide variety of ingredients for its filling. Among the most common scaccias are cheese and tomato, cheese and onion, eggplant and cheese, spinach and ricotta, and ricotta with calabrese. Even so, there are other additional ones such as parsley, basil, potatoes, sausages, broccoli, olives, etc. Resulting in a magnificent and versatile meal.

The amount of the filling will be to taste, and it is not usually used in large quantities. It should be noted that the more you fill, the more laborious the folding technique will be due to its weight. However, it is not difficult, since it is not a preparation that demands perfection or that is ruined if the dough breaks a little. So don’t be afraid to overfill.

About the folds of the scaccia:

Once the dough is leavened, it is stretched in a rectangular shape with a thickness of approximately 5 mm, a little filling is spread over the entire surface. Consequently, one end of the dough is folded towards the center and the other end is folded until it overlaps. So that both parts are in contact, sealing each other.

After this first fold proceed to the second. Which is first spread over the dough with the rest of the ingredients and one end is folded towards the center. With the remaining end, the fold is completely covered. In the photos you will see this folding technique step by step for a better understanding.

About cooking:

Finally, the whole wheat scaccia is baked in a hot oven, at a temperature above 220 °C – 428 °F for approximately 20 minutes. For the best result, it is recommended to adapt the cooking according to the type of oven available. This type of food is consumed both hot and cold.
