How to Make a Smarter Roman-Style Pizza

Here are 5 things you need to know about Pinsa Romana Flour




 

Every so often, a new product innovation comes along in the culinary world that changes the game. Today, one of the most exciting products emerging is ​Pinsa Romana​, a revolutionary balance of flours and mother dough that is rich in innovation yet rooted in history.  

Pinsa Romana was born from a traditional recipe for Roman-style pizza. On a quest to make the food healthier, Pinsa Romana Founder Corrado di Marco perfected a flour blend that cuts out sugar and saturated fats. This one-of-a-kind flour mix took over a decade to develop and keeps the same texture and flavor as the traditional product. Today Pinsa Romana is used by thousands to produce a light and flavorful crust that’s convenient to make and healthy to eat.

Pinsa Romana:  

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!
