- Pizza al Taglio (huge square slice) Roman Style cut with scissors

“Pizza al Taglio” (Roman Style Pizza) is set to revolutionize the U.S. pizza industry.

Pizza! Everyone knows it, everyone loves it! It’s hard to disagree that pizza is one of our favorite foods. New York Style, Chicago Style, Detroit Style, Sicilian Style, Neapolitan Style, it does not matter we like them all. However there is one particular style many have never heard of and it's set to be the next big trend in the U.S pizza industry. The style we speak of is Roman Style or more commonly known as Pizza al Taglio in Italy (pizza by the cut translated literally). One may ask…Why is this?  How do we know Pizza al Taglio is set to be next in line? Well…its quite simple, the “gourmet”/”artisan” trend we are seeing these days is here to stay. Our food culture in the U.S is growing, the customers are loving the better quality ingredients, the romantic story and quite frankly the pizzerias are quite happy with the profitability of better quality pizza.  Pizza al Taglio fits these molds but it also has some additional perks going for it . Its considerably healthier than most pizza, its much more appealing to the eye than all other pizza, and it follows the fast casual model of “you pick” what you want we are seeing more often these days. Another great aspect of Pizza al Taglio much different than that of the popular Neapolitan Pizza is the fact that everything is done in advance before the customer walks in the door. In today’s world these are all recipes for success.

Those in the know have seen the Pizza al Taglio movement coming for just about 1-2 years now.  When you see big names like Starbucks (operating under the Princi brand), Gabriele Bonci, and a few names we will keep confidential for the time being get involved in the USA market you start to believe a little more.  More proof is our course attendance is skyrocketing as of late and we are seeing more and more pizza professionals sign up for training. Many of whom want to be the first in their city and many of whom want to remain anonymous as they prefer to fly in under the radar.

Via ITALIA will be proud to be a pioneer in the Pizza al Taglio movement.

Whole wheat flour and Multigrain Pizza: Do you know the benefits?

You know, pizza is pizza.. and it's a dish that few can give up or say no. But above all, can it offer vitamins, fiber and minerals necessary for our well-being? You will have trouble believing it, but the answer is YES! We at Via Italia will use Ancient Grains the symbol of popular cuisine, extraordinary for its goodness and apparent simplicity: a disk of pasta prepared with sourdough and ancient Sicilian grain flours (Tumminia and Russello), stone-pressed. So a creation to be treated with love and passion, respecting the time of maturation and leavening of the dough, taking care to choose the best ingredients among the many gastronomic excellences that our beloved land of Sicily offers us.

FARRO and MULTICEREALS besides being very good, are also very healthy . Farro, the least caloric cereal ever, has, in fact, been used by different Mediterranean civilizations as a bargaining chip in wedding rituals. The sweet and aromatic taste gives the palate some hazelnut notes. The dough multigrain flour, also good and healthy, is obtained by combining different types of flour as well as oil seeds and flakes. It is a rich mixture of nutrients such as fiber, vitamins, proteins and mineral salts.
