No, it’s not a typo, you’ve read it right - Pinsa’s are a thing and are set to take the country by storm! Supermarket Aldi, has launched Stonebaked Pinsa’s (£1.99), as part of their summer seasonal frozen food range, available to buy in stores now.
So, what’s all the fuss about? The word Pinsa comes from the Latin word ‘Pinsere’, meaning ‘stretch-spread-out’, which refers to the composition of the Pinsa base. Made using an ancient recipe, the Pinsa is thought to be more digestible than a pizza because of the ultra-hydrated dough, which is 80% water compared to a pizza which is more often 50-60%. The increased volume of water helps to make Pinsa’s lighter, airier and crunchier - bellisimo!!
And, there’s more…Aldi’s Stonebaked Pinsa’s are made using water directly from the Sibillini mountain region in Italy. Fancy!
Aldi’s Stonebaked Pinsa’s have launched in three delicious flavours:
- Chicken Tikka - chicken breast pieces in a fragrant tikka sauce with peppers and onions, topped with creamy mozzarella
- Ham, Bacon & Mushroom - slices of tender ham, bacon and seasoned mushrooms with creamy mascarpone sauce
- Grilled Vegetables & Pesto – Tomatoes, red onion and grilled peppers topped with mozzarella and finished with a green pesto sauce
If you like Pizza, you will love Pinsa’s - what are you waiting for?
