Pinsa: It’s all about the dough!
The Pinsa TRADITION:
Pinsa is the consummation of over 100 years of Roman artisan baking expertise, creativity and experience.
Pinsa comes from Latin “pinsere” meaning “push the dough by hands”. Pinsa is described as being like a “cloud” of pizza with a delightful, crispy texture on the outside and an incredibly soft, tasty inside. Pinsa is made with the exquisite taste of natural ancient bread in its original oval form, which delivers an incredible taste experience and an appealingly distinctive presentation.
Pinsa traces its origins back to the Roman Empire. It was considered so delicious that the ancient priests offered it to the gods. The poet Virgil in his Aeneid wrote that peasants in the Roman countryside kneaded grains, salt and herbs to make a “low and oval cake” cooked on hot coals. Virgil recorded this easily digestible cake was one of the first foods Trojan Hero Aeneas bit into when he set foot on the Lazio coast.
Today, we want to share this popular regional product, par excellence, characterized by its delicious taste, crispy crust and soft inside.
Pinsa is EASILY and NATURALLY DIGESTIBLE:
Pinsa is enjoyably digestible! The dough is made from Non-GMO rice, soy and wheat flours. Pinsa is a work of culinary art and a revelation into the pizza industry. It is considered a game changer by many existing restauranteurs worldwide. Given its outstanding taste, all natural properties and health benefits, we are confident Pinsa will become a mainstay in the United States market as well.
The ease of digestibility is due to several factors, including the 72 hour process of cold fermentation which breaks down starches, the 80-90% hydration and the simplicity of all natural ingredients. The perfect “maturation” is the result of our specific cold working method of the dough based upon the study of optimal temperatures for each phase of the process. During the maturation period, complex sugars and proteins break down into simple sugars and amino acids, resulting in a delicious, incredibly easy and natural digestive experience.
Pinsa is TASTY and NUTRITIOUS:
The combination of Non-GMO rice, soy and wheat flours help make Pinsa crunchy the outside and amazingly soft and light on the inside. The rice flour used in Pinsa allows this dough to have significantly fewer calories and fats than the typical pizza.
Rice flour in the Pinsa revolutionizes the dough because of its ability to absorb water, aiding in its digestibility. Because of this, Pinsa uses less wheat flour, resulting in fewer carbohydrates and calories. Soy flour naturally contains vitamins A, B, and C as well as the minerals calcium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, and magnesium. Soy flour is gluten-free and helps reduce cholesterol in the blood.
