Product Of The Month
Every month we spotlight a bread or product that we sell in our cafés. We hope you enjoy learning a little about them. Stop by any of our locations to sample these treats and take something home to share.
Adorned with dimples, flakes of sea salt and just a hint of fresh rosemary, Pizza Bianca is the latest addition to our bread menu. With its chewy exterior and bubbles throughout the crumb, it’s perfect for soaking up sandwich spreads. Inspired by co-owner Matt Galvin’s favorite lunch when he lived in Italy, this bread is a new house favorite at Macrina.
"Our Pizza Bianca is closer to a thin, airy focaccia," says Leslie Mackie. "It is a very simple but habit-forming obsession. It’s so versatile and so good used as a sandwich bread - grilled or not - or eaten plain or dunked in our Tuscan White Bean Spread."
Pizza Bianca and Schiacciata are very similar and some may refer to each as the same. Leslie was looking for something lighter than Schiacciata for our sandwiches and played around with a Pizza Bianca recipe until it was just right. Now you can find it featured on our weekly lunch menu and pick some up to enjoy at home.
