Borlengo (pl.: borlenghi), also called burlengo or zampanelle, is an Italian thin flatbread. Originally a food eaten by the poor and made only with flour and water, it now[when?] also usually includes salt and optionally eggs, and is often made outside in a frying pan the size of a cartwheel.[1] These are then rubbed with a mixture that can contain rosemary, garlic, salt pork, olive oil, or what is called cunza, sauteed minced pancetta and sausage, folded into quarters and sprinkled with Parmesan.[2][3][4]
