DURHAM, N.C. (Jan. 31, 2022) — The romance, the history, the pizza – there are many things Rome is known for. And now, Durham foodies can get a little taste of the City of Love right on Broad Street, no passport needed.
The Loop Restaurant Durham location is now serving specialty Pinsa Pizzas. Originating in Rome, Pinsa Pizza recipes are taking Europe by storm. The addition of this new offering comes just in time for the concept’s one-year anniversary happening this February.
Delicious Pinsa has a cloud-like, oval-shaped crust that's crunchy on the outside, but soft inside. Pinsa Pizza has half the calories of traditional pizza and contains no additives, preservatives, saturated fats, cholesterol, salt or sugar. It's made with a special blend of non-GMO flours (organic soy, rice and wheat) from Italy. Topped with favorite pizza toppings, it's a healthy and delicious alternative to traditional pizza.
“We’re constantly trying to add more innovative and inclusive new items to our menu. Pinsa Pizza is a tasty option the whole family will love, with zero guilt,” said Mike Schneider, The Loop’s co-founder and president. “The addition of Pinsa Pizzas to The Loop’s delicious lineup is the perfect way to celebrate the Durham concept’s first anniversary!”
The Loop currently offers six specialty Pinsa Pizzas:
•Sweet Max: Prosciutto, fontina and cracked black pepper and drizzled with honey
•Mushroom Fontina: Thyme, truffle balsamic glaze and cracked black pepper
•The Little Pigs: Fennel sausage, artisan pepperoni, prosciutto, mozzarella and mutti tomato sauce
