Everything you need to know about our “Puccias”.

In case you didn’t know, puccias are a type of Italian bread, similar to a bread roll or a kind of sandwich, originating from the Puglia region in southern Italy. The word ‘puccia’ comes from the Pugliese dialect and is used to refer to this type of bread.

Puccias are made from a white bread dough, similar to pizza dough, which is baked until it becomes crispy on the outside but soft and fluffy on the inside. They are usually round or oval in shape and can be of various sizes.

What makes puccias special is their filling. Traditionally, the bread is cut in half and filled with a variety of ingredients. Typical fillings include sausages such as salami, ham and mortadella, cheese, mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, olives, rocket, grilled aubergines and other vegetables.
