Traditional Roman Pinsa that won't break the bank

Viale dello Scalo S. Lorenzo, 15/17, 00185 Roma, Italy

Everybody knows what pizza is, but do you know what “pinsa” means? A pinsa is regarded as the ancestor of pizza, and it was cooked among poor Roman farmers, who ate this oval or rectangular dough made of flour and cereals. Pinsa’s dough needs lots of hours to rise and, compared to pizza, is easier to digest. If you want to taste a very good Roman pinsa, I suggest you try “Pinsa e Buoi”, in rione of S. Lorenzo.
