The only thing that beats watching your favorite sports team, is watching your favorite sports team while eating delicious food.
Unfortunately for people who avoid gluten, it can feel restricting—and oftentimes frustrating—to find gluten-friendly food while out and about. Sporting events aren’t necessarily known for their healthy, diet-inclusive menu options. But, Pinsa Romana America believes that going to a ball game shouldn’t dismiss the possibility of enjoying fresh, guilt-free food.
Baseball-loving foodies rejoice with pinsa: the Roman-style pizza crust that’s healthy, gluten-friendly, and simply irresistible.
What is Pinsa?
Pinsa is a centuries-old Roman recipe that gets its name from the word “pinsere,” meaning “to press.” The careful practice of hand-pressing the dough enriches its flavor profile and ensures that the gases created during fermentation are preserved.
Pinsa’s unique recipe is made with a revolutionary blend of non-GMO rice, wheat, soy, and sourdough flours, up to 80% water, and no added sugars or fats. The significant water content eases digestibility, proving that delicious pizza crust can be as gluten-friendly as it is gut-friendly.
The result? A supple, cloud-like structure—crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, and packed with flavor.
How is Pinsa Gluten-Friendly?
Pinsa Romana America pinsa crusts endure a 48-72 hour cold fermentation process, creating a lift that adds volume to its airy pockets. Not only does this allow the pinsa dough to be hand-pressed with artisanal flair, but it also results in the acids and enzymes from the yeast having sufficient time to mellow, softening the gluten-forming proteins.
By incorporating sourdough into the pinsa recipe, the crust develops more flavor and more nutrients. Sourdough relies on a mixture of water and flour to develop into wild yeast. This wild yeast turns into lactic acid, which gives sourdough that distinctive tang to its taste. The bacteria from the lactic acid interacts with the dough to form more nutrients (folate, magnesium, and potassium). These nutrients being present in the pinsa crust makes it easier for your body to absorb. Acting as a prebiotic, the acid in sourdough degrades gluten, and helps to feed healthy bacteria into your body.
