Revzora, the simple recipe of the Ligurian tradition

Revzora recipe

We present the revzora, the quick and easy recipe of the Ligurian tradition from the famous dough with corn flour.

Today we talk about traditions! In particular, the revzora, the original recipe coming directly from a magnificent village in the Ligurian area. It is a soft and simple focaccia to make with a few genuine ingredients. What characterizes this leavened product is its dough made with a mixture of white flour and corn flour , together with oil, salt, water and yeast.

The name derives from the dialect definition of "sifted bran" which once replaced white flour. The revzora of Campo Ligure was originally prepared by dividing the dough into equal parts to obtain small scones , but at home it will be easier to create a single focaccia in a pan. Ideal to be enjoyed instead of bread or for a delicious dinner to be accompanied with cold cuts and cheeses.
