Health Benefits of Pinsa vs. Other Crusts

Everybody loves pizza. Unfortunately, it isn’t known for being the most nutritious meal. That’s why health-conscious foodies are swooning over pinsa: the Roman-style pizza crust that’s healthier, tastier, and simply better than traditional pizza.

Pinsa’s unique blend of non-GMO flours creates a vegan, gluten-friendly crust—allowing for a light, airy base for all the toppings your heart desires. Aside from its cloud-like crispiness and dynamic flavor, pinsa is an upgrade for more than just your taste buds. 

It’s All About the Flour

A typical pizza crust recipe calls for the use of all-purpose flour.Aside from being made with bleached wheat and added vitamins, all-purpose flour is also made with refined grains—meaning the fiber and nutrients are removed. Pinsa Romana’s flour recipe of soy, rice, sourdough, and zero wheat flours create a non-GMO blend. Unlike traditional pizza crust, this dough recipe ferments for 48-72 hours to make it not only delicious, but easily digestible. 

Vegan and Gluten-Friendly

Pinsa Romana is proud to serve authentic, Italian  cuisine with every bite of our vegan, gluten-friendly crust! Pinsa is naturally free of any foods derived from animals. When paired with your favorite plant-based toppings, pinsa is the perfect base for a delicious vegan meal. 

While most pizza crusts are gluten-heavy, the sheer variety of flours in pinsa’s recipe calls for a low level of gluten to begin with. Additionally, pinsa’s meticulous fermentation process breaks down the starches and glutens, creating a crust that’s delightfully healthy and gluten-friendly! 

Digestible and Delizioso

Pizza has a habit of leaving a heavy feeling in your stomach. That’s why pinsa is engineered for easy digestibility—to leave you feeling satisfied, not bloated and uncomfortable. 

With a combination of our non-GMO flour blend, cold fermentation, hand-pressing process, and infusion of up to 80% hydration, pinsa dough is designed to be light and airy. Pinsa proves that a healthy crust doesn’t have to compromise its dynamic flavor. A gluten-friendly, guilt-free crust that still tastes divine? It doesn’t get much better than that!
