Picture this: you work at an esteemed Italian restaurant. It’s dinner rush. The kitchen is delightfully aromatic with hints of basil and garlic, but it’s bustling with people. The stress levels are high, and the expectations are even higher. Every chef around you believes that there’s nothing more important than delivering an authentic and delicious plate to every dinner table, because they all hold the same passion for bringing people together through good food.
Many chefs and food artisans pride themselves on preparing never-premade, always-handcrafted dishes from scratch. But there comes a time when it becomes unrealistic—and even impossible—to expect every single component to be made in-house.
The primary problem is time. You want to deliver the best pizza possible, but you simply don’t have the time to roll out, hand press, ferment, and bake a perfectly crispy-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside crust. How do you solve this problem? The answer is quite simple: par-baked pizza crusts.
Par-baked Pinsa Crusts: No Hesitation Required
The hesitation to use par-baked or frozen pizza crust is understandable, because serving high-quality food is paramount to restaurant owners. Not every premade crust is artisanal and able to elevate a dish. In fact, most aren’t. But pinsa, the authentic, divine upgrade to traditional pizza crust, is the perfect addition to every kitchen—big or small.
Join us as we dive into the wonders of par-baked pinsa crust, and why the ancient recipe has stood the test of time.
What is Pinsa?
In the days of ancient Rome, pinsa was deemed so heavenly, it was even offered to the gods. Today, it still graces dinner tables as the finest base to every pizza dish, no matter the choice of toppings. But what makes it so mesmerizing?
Inspired by a centuries-old Roman recipe, pinsa gets its name from “pinsere,” meaning “to press.” Each and every 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. Unlike traditional modern pizza crust, pinsa is made with a blend of non-GMO rice, soy, wheat, and sourdough flours, up to 80% hydration for easy digestibility, and no added fats or sugars. Its recipe is naturally vegan, gluten-friendly, and delicate in texture—allowing pizza-lovers the chance to indulge without regret! It’s simply healthier, tastier, and better than your average pizza crust. You can truly taste the difference!
