Tommasinos

What is Pinsa?

Did you know that the name Pinsa comes from the Latin word “Pinsere”, which in Italian means stretch-spread out, which makes sense as it is shaped like an oval.

Pinsa is far more digestible than Pizza due to its different dough hydration and the water used in the doe is always cold. On top of that, the dough has less carbohydrates and fats…in other words you can leave the guilt at home! The main ingredients of the doe are wheat, soya and rice.

It was invented before Pizza thanks to an old Roman recipe. 

What we can properly call “Pinsa Romana moderna” is the revisitation of an ancient roman recipe, revised by new ingredients and modern working techniques.

The original idea of the recipe takes its shape from an ancient product that came from the paesant populations living right outside the walls of Rome. These populations used to cook “schiacciatine”(or “focacce”) by grinding cereal grains (millet, barley and spelt) and adding salt and aromatic herbs as well. The word Pinsa comes from the latin “Pinsere” that means: to lay, to stretch. The classic recipe has been revised, over the centuries, several times until today.

What are Strangozzi?

Strangozzi is a handmade pasta, typical from our hometown Spoleto, in the green heart of Italy, the Umbria region. the name Strangozzi comes from a particular cut of pasta dough that recalls the form of the ‘stringa’ , the laces of the romans sandals.
The traditional recipe; egg whites, water, flour, salt, extra virgin olive oil and white wine make it look like a linguine but a bit more twisted.
