LA PIRUETTA PIZZERIA PRESENTS: THE NEW PINSA ROMANA, NOW AVAILABLE FOR TAKE AWAY

Fun fact: do you know why this dish is called Pinsa and it it not to be confused with traditional pizza?

Pinsa is a name of ancient origins: it comes from latin, in which “Pinsere” meant to stretch, lengthen or make longer.

So why we decided to offer this special dish in our Pizzeria Restaurant in Celerina, near Sankt Moritz in the Engadina? That’s because we wanted to give the opportunity to both children and adults to discover a famous version of traditional pizza. Pinsa is in fact a revision of the classic recipe, born in the Roman era, in order to create a modern version of pizza.

In Ancient Roman Era, all people that lived outside the city walls were poor and usually farmers, that’s why ground cereals were so important. The production of bread and focacce started here, along with the creation of the Pinsa pizza: a simple yet delicious traditional dish.

Pinsa Romana is different from traditional pizza in many ways:

  • It has an unusual oval shape
  • It’s really friable. Pinsa has to be crispy on the edges but really soft in the middle
  • Thanks to the peculiar rising of the dough, Pinsa is easily digestible
  • It uses a unique mix of flours: wheat, rice, soy and e sourdough

Come try the new Pinsa Romana or order it with our new take away service.
