The secret of Pinsa
What is special about Pinsa?
The secret of Pinsa lies in the combination of ingredients and the way the dough is made. Unlike traditional pizza, the dough for Pinsa is made from a mixture of wheat flour, rice flour and water. Rice flour makes the dough lighter and crispier, while the wheat flour gives it a pleasant texture and mild flavour. The optimal method is to knead the dough evenly over a few minutes, such as a Bernardi dough kneader does.
Rest brings flavour
Another important factor is the long resting time of the dough. By letting the dough rise for a longer time at room temperature or even in the refrigerator, it develops a special flavour and an airy structure. The way Pinsa is baked also contributes to its unique texture. Unlike traditional pizza, pinsa is usually baked in a wood-fired oven at a high temperature, resulting in a crispy crust. Baking in a wood-fired oven has many advantages. One of them is the high and very consistent temperature, which is achieved mainly with traditionally made wood-fired ovens from Italy. The result is a pinsa with a crispy, airy crust and a soft, fluffy interior.
In summary, the secret of Pinsa lies in the careful selection of ingredients, the long resting time of the dough and the special way it is baked. All these factors contribute to the unique texture and delicious taste of Pinsa, making it a popular dish in Italian cuisine.

Valoriani Baby 60cm Holz
4.6 of 5 stars
The Baby is a classic The Baby from the traditional Italian company Valoriani is a professional wood or gas oven and combines the excellent quality of Valoriani with an extremely attractive design. The traditional Tuscan materials like the refractory firebrick in combination with a visually appealing metal dome in red, ivory, black or with mosaic give the oven Italian flair in no time. Optionally, the Baby can be ordered with an undercarriage. Originally, the Baby was designed by Valoriani for catering businesses as an oven for preparing gluten-free dishes. But the Baby quickly developed into a very popular oven for food trucks at festivals and events as well as for small catering businesses. The Baby 60 also enjoys great popularity among private individuals with ambitious cooking skills. As it is mobile on the undercarriage and can be used both indoors and outdoors, it is a real all-rounder and a great eye-catcher. Whether in ivory, red or black, the Baby attracts attention and convinces with its inner values: fireproof firebricks for even heat and optimal insulation for economical wood consumption. The Baby also cuts a fine figure in the outdoor kitchen, whether as a tabletop or on the trolley. The special thing about the Baby 60cm: The 60cm version of the Valoriani Baby is available with a stainless steel arch. Especially the floor insulation and the dome insulation distinguish this very high-quality wood stove from imitation products. The Valoriani Baby is made of dome materials from the professional sector, i.e. with a high proportion of fireclay. The floor is also made of 100% full fireclay. This is food-safe and suitable for cooking and baking food. The dome is insulated with special ceramic fibre and powder-coated with the best metal and painted, so these ovens can be used outdoors all year round in wind and weather even without a cover. The front arch is also decoupled from the dome to compensate for thermal stresses. The substructures are galvanised and painted, which ensures the highest possible durability with additional sealing. Valoriani has stood for quality and durability for over 100 years.
