Pinza, Jumeirah Village Circle

by Shekhar & Pawan Manghnani on November 24th, 2016

About

Not a pizza, not a flatbread, PINZA is in a class all of its own. Pinza is the modern foodie’s answer to a wholesome – and ridiculously delicious – hand-kneaded crust. Nourishing, wholesome and completely irresistible, Pinza is on a mission to introduce their uniquely healthful menu to Dubai’s community of thinkers, do-ers and lovers of life.

Review

​With the overabundance of pizza joints in Dubai, it’s difficult for newer establishments to stand out from the already flourished market. While a lot of these new joints have tried to become a carbon copy of their successors thus failing to make their own mark, Pinza, refreshingly, is not among them and is of its own breed. Adapting a healthier concept already distinguishes itself from the likes of Pizza Hut, Pizza Inn or Domino’s, all the while taking nothing away in terms of taste.

The menu is diverse and unique with a wide range of selection for both the vegetarians and non-vegetarians that makes it ideal for just about anyone. Their distinctive ingredients make strong impressions in their lineup that is sure to be replicated by upcoming joints like the burrata and truffle. Overall, it’s just refreshing to witness and enjoy the perspective of someone that has a different viewpoint of what defines pizza for them, and then you feel the same way. 

Ambiance

​The place itself is nothing remarkable but that’s not something anyone should be concerned for. Pinza is idealistic for home/office deliveries and takeaways, not dine-in. Although, they do have benches for diners and its fairly spacious too. The lighting could use some work, the white lights give a very dull feel overall & should be replaced with something more warmer and inviting. Even the lights in the balloon shaped ornaments could replace for something dimmer to generate a cozier atmosphere. 

Food

Since we wanted to try a lot of items from the menu with a limited eating capacity, we went in for half and half pinza's. Please note these are not available to order as its practically impossible to do this especially during peak hours. This was made specially for our tasting session. But you can definitely go in for the full Pinza's. Following is our order:

Burrata Salad:

Not much to say here except that they made it healthy AND fun. Also, the burrata cheese was light and tasty.
​URTHIE:
Tomato Sause, Mozzarella, Caramelized Onions with Balsamic Vinegar, Potatoes and Rosemary.

If you’re a vegetarian and have complaints with pizza joints not having a good variety of vegetarian options, this is what you’re looking for. With just enough experimentation going on here, this is superior to your traditional run of the mill veggie pizza.
​PINZAFIED MARGHERITA:
Tomato Sauce, Cherry Tomato, Burrata, Basil.

Burrata, Burrata, Burrata! This Italian cheese is unlike any and completely stole the show for us. The soft texture of the cheese was absolute bliss. You don’t find this quality at any of your big brands. 
​TRUFFLE GOODNESS:
Mozzarella, Truffle, Parsley, Portobello Mushrooms

Truffles are some of the most expensive forms of food there is and world famous chefs claim it to be the “diamond of the kitchen”. The Truffle and Mushrooms mesh so well together here to form a unique and strong taste, delectable yet the same. 
​VEGGIELICIOUS:
Tomato Sauce, Olives, Mozzarella, Portobello Mushrooms, Green, Red & Yellow Peppers

Nothing exquisite about the Veggielicious Pinza here, it's kind of generic and expected but it's most definitely a safe bet and go to option for vegetarians who are all too familiar with these ingredients at this point. 
PEPPERONI:
Tomato Sauce, Mozzarella, Pepperoni Salami

I love Pepperoni and it was nice to see a unique version of the same. Sure, they haven;t re-invented the wheel here but the Pepperoni tasted crisp and heavenly without the excessive oil that the other joints across Dubai love to add.
​SPIZY:
Mozzarella, Wagyu Sausage, Portobello Mushrooms, Caramelized Onion Chili Flakes, Fennel Seeds

This was a surprise combination too. Love what they have tried here with the wagyu beef ,although we were too full by this point, the pizza thankfully wasn't all that heavy. Now that is saying something.
Chicken Tikka:

Chicken Tikka, Omani Jalapenos, Onions.

Not on their regular menu. This was by far the spiciest pizzas's I have ever eaten. And I am used to spice. The Omani Jalapenos were a real surprise and left my tongue and even lips burning for a few minutes. If you can take some spice definitely go for this one. But we very careful of them Jalapenos.
​NUTELLA W/BANANA & SOLO:

This was simply bound to happen and it is every bit as good as you’d think. Nutella and Banana is a match made in heaven and boy did we get a taste of heaven! Just wish this was served in cinema houses across the country!

Verdict

​We live in a world where being good is just not enough, we need to characterize everything and then standout from the masses and that’s exactly what Pinza is. From their unconventional menu, freshness of newer & healthier ingredients, well balanced pizzas and downright quality of the product you pay for, Pinza is a winner all around.
