Then what exactly is a Pinsa Pizza? Pinsa Romana is a type of Roman-style pizza that has gained popularity in recent years. Unlike the traditional Neapolitan-style pizza, which is round and thin with a crispy crust, Pinsa Romana is rectangular in shape and has a thicker, crunchier crust. The Latin term “Pinsere”, which literally means to “push the dough by the hands,” is the origin of the word of the known term today, “Pinsa.” Technically speaking, pinsa is a highly proofed dough with a higher water content than a typical pizza base, making the finished base especially “crunchy” and simple to digest due to the prolonged leavening of the dough. The unique oval shape of the Pinsa is one of the main differences, compared to traditional Pizza. Like the remainder of our product range, our pinsa is vegan-friendly and quick and easy to prepare, requiring only three minutes in a stone oven before it’s ready for serving!
It goes without saying that pizza has been evolving for centuries and continues to do so. As the name implies, Pinsa Romana is rooted in the Roman cuisine. A unique variety of pizza base was developed by the ancient Romans and is still in high demand today. Roman Pinsa was even offered to the ancient deity by priests because it was thought to be so astonishingly tasteful by the Romans.
The recipe for Pinsa Romana is based on this ancient bread-making technique and uses a blend of wheat, soy, and rice flours. The dough for Pinsa Romana is made using a long fermentation process, which gives the crust its distinctive texture and flavor. The dough is then shaped into a rectangular shape and topped with a variety of fresh ingredients.
In recent years, Pinsa Romana has become an important part of Italy’s culinary heritage. In 2017, the Italian government officially recognized Pinsa Romana as a traditional food product, giving it protected status and helping to promote its heritage and cultural significance. Today, Pinsa Romana is enjoyed by people all over the world, who appreciate its unique flavor, light texture, and healthy ingredients. Its heritage and history are a testament to the long-standing culinary traditions of Italy, and its continued popularity ensures that it will remain a beloved dish for generations to come.
Our pinsa base is especially light, airy and crispy to the texture. Our Pinsa’s are individually hand stretched and created by using our original recipe including three different flours, one of which is whole wheat. Because of its unique combination of three flours, lengthy leavening, leading to a high hydration that gives Pinsa various of health benefits, Pinsa is naturally considered to be the healthier alternative to traditional pizzas. Pinsa is also far easier to digest, lower in fat, calories and carbs than traditional pizzas.

No additives are used in the dough’s creation; only pure, artisanal olive oil.

We like to percieve the pinsa as the new, trendy and versatile “blank canvas” base, ready for your creative coloring. The Pinsa’s toppings are generally perceived as more “gourmet” than those on regular pizzas. Instead of tomato sauce, mozarella and basil as the stereotypical pizza margerita would look like, we like to see pinsa as the more exquisite, creative and versatile option.
When it comes to toppings, there are endless possibilities for creating delicious and unique Pinsa Romana recipes. Classic toppings include San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and olive oil. However, you can also experiment with different combinations of meats, vegetables, fruits and cheese to create your own signature Pinsa Romana. You can also try adding unique ingredients like seafood, truffle oil, figs, or smoked salmon for a truly gourmet experience.
One key thing to keep in mind when selecting toppings for Pinsa Romana is that less is often more. Because the crust is thicker than traditional pizza crust, it can easily become overwhelmed with too many toppings. Aim for a few high-quality ingredients that complement each other and let the flavor and texture of the crust shine through.
In summary, Pinsa Romana is a delicious and unique style of pizza that offers a healthier and more digestible alternative to traditional pizza. Its popularity is a testament to the creativity and innovation of Italian cuisine, and it is sure to remain a favorite among pizza lovers for years to come. The key to making great Pinsa Romana is to use the right blend of flours, ferment the dough for at least 48 hours, and select high-quality ingredients for toppings.
