What is the difference between a pinsa and a pizza?

At first glance, pinsa and pizza differ only in their shape – a pinsa is oval like a focaccia. Another difference lies in the ingredients of the dough. The pinsa dough consists of different types of flour, e.g. B. Wheat, spelled, soy and rice flour. Add yeast, salt, oil and water.

However, the biggest difference between pinsa and pizza is the resting time: the dough stays in the fridge for up to 120 hours, but at least 24 hours. It should rise completely and make the pinsa particularly digestible.

How do you make a pinsa without yeast?

If you want to be quick and don’t have time for the pinsa dough to rest for a long time, you can alternatively prepare a classic curd-oil dough. Flour, salt and baking powder are mixed in a large bowl with cottage cheese, egg and olive oil and kneaded into a smooth dough. The dough does not need to rest and can be rolled out and covered immediately.

What’s up with Pinsa Romana?
