The Perfect Baseball Snack: Pinsa at American Family Field

Milwaukee Brewers fans know that a day at American Family Field calls for exciting home runs, drinks aplenty, and a whole lot of greasy ballpark food. 

But, do you ever wish there were a healthier, more artisanal food option to enjoy during the game? At Pinsa Romana America, we believe that going to a ballgame shouldn’t dismiss the possibility of enjoying food that’s fresh, guilt-free, and delicious. Introducing American Family Field’s newest addition to their menu: pinsa!

What is Pinsa?

Pinsa is a Roman-style pizza crust that’s healthier, tastier, and simply better than your everyday, classic crust.

Inspired by a centuries-old Roman recipe, pinsa gets its name from “pinsere,” meaning “to press.” Each and every pinsa crust is hand-pressed to perfection—creating a cloud-like texture that, while practically weightless, is packed with flavor.

Pinsa’s ingredients are as simple as they are clean—made with a blend of non-GMO rice, soy, wheat, and sourdough flours, up to 80% hydration for easy digestibility, and no added sugars and fats.

Naturally vegan and gluten-friendly, pinsa proves that you don’t have to sacrifice a divine taste to have a healthy, nutritious meal. Its universally-loved flavor profile pairs perfectly with any and all garnishes. The top-abilities are truly endless! Plus, these hand-pressed crusts are locally-made in Wisconsin, carefully packaged and transported to American Family Field from our SQF-certified facility. 

Pinsa: The Perfect Baseball Snack

Pizza is amazing. The side effects? Not so much. Bloating, fatigue, and discomfort are common aftereffects of eating pizza. In fact, most pizza crust is filled with carbs and starches, taking 6-8 hours to digest. With pinsa’s revolutionary recipe, Brewers fans can indulge without regret!

How? Pinsa has been engineered for easy digestibility with three key elements:

  • Fermentation: Pinsa Romana America’s pinsa crusts endure a 48-72 hour cold fermentation process, creating a lift that adds volume to its airy pockets. Throughout fermentation, the acids and enzymes from the yeast have sufficient time to mellow, softening the gluten-forming proteins. Not only does this allow the pinsa dough to be hand-pressed with artisanal flair, but it also results in a lighter, crispier crust that is easier for your body to digest. 
  • Sourdough: Pinsa Romana America has a curated blend of flours designed to help alleviate the discomfort of bloating after eating. By incorporating sourdough into the recipe, the crust develops more flavor and more nutrients. Folate, magnesium, and potassium created from sourdough’s yeast makes it much easier for your body to absorb the crust. Sourdough also acts as a prebiotic, meaning that the fibrous flour helps to feed healthy bacteria into your intestines. 
  • Hydration: Pinsa Romana America crusts are infused with up to 80% hydration, allowing the gluten ample opportunity to soften within the dough—making it easier to digest. With significant water content to ease post-meal discomfort, pinsa’s recipe emphasizes that pizza crust can be as gluten-friendly as it is gut-friendly. 

Health-conscious baseball lovers rejoice with pinsa’s clean, guilt-free ingredient list. From the top of the first inning to the bottom of the ninth, you’ll feel good throughout the whole game with pinsa as your dish of choice.
