1) Pinsa is healthy
Pinsa dough is ultra-hydrated, consisting of 80% water as compared to traditional pizza dough (50-60% water). The presence of rice and soy flour means that Pinsa Romana has less gluten than the average pizza dough and is extremely digestible.
2) Pinsa is convenient
Pinsa can be made quickly because the base is prepared ahead of time. Chefs simply add toppings and bake. In a matter of minutes, you have a delicious, authentic Pinsa, making it an ideal entree for restaurants, food trucks, college campuses, and everything in between!
3) Pinsa is incredibly versatile
Pinsa bases can be topped with virtually anything. You can slice Pinsa into sections to make beautifully decorated appetizers. Add a saffron and four-cheese blend to the crust with bacon and asparagus for a refined dinner, or top with a chocolate-hazelnut spread and strawberries for a sweet treat.
4) Pinsa is community
Preparing Pinsa Romana is an art and craft supported by fellow passionate pinsaioli. The Pinsa Academy leads students through training to learn precisely how to prepare Pinsa Romana. Once trained, Pinsa makers can take an exam to qualify for membership in the Originale Pinsa Romana association.
5) Pinsa tastes really, really good
Health, flavor and convenience benefits aside, Pinsa Romana simply tastes amazing. With a light, crispy texture and a rich flavor profile, you might find yourself just eating the crust without any toppings—it’s that good!
