Choosing the Right Wheat for a Rustic Pizza: Farro, Wholemeal or Multigrain?

Choosing the Right Wheat for a Rustic Pizza: Farro, Wholemeal or Multigrain? Dear friends of good pizza,

Have you ever dreamed of preparing a rustic pizza that delights the palate and nourishes the body? Well, today we will talk about exactly this: how to choose the perfect type of wheat for a pizza with an authentic and genuine flavour.

When it comes to pizza flour, we are faced with a vast choice: Spelt, integral, multigrain and so on. But which one to use to get the best result?

Let's start with spelled. This ancient grain is known for its nutritious properties and slightly nutty flavor. Spelled flour is great for those looking for a rustic pizza with a slightly crunchier texture and distinctive flavor. Its processing takes a while’ pay more attention when preparing the dough, but the end result is definitely worth it.

Now let's move on to wholemeal flour. Rich in fiber and nutrients, wholemeal flour is the ideal choice for those who want a healthier and more nutritious pizza. Its slightly denser texture gives the pizza a solid base and robust flavor. Perfect for a rustic pizza that tastes of authenticity.

At Last, we have the multigrain flour. This blend of different types of grains adds depth of flavor and texture to the pizza. With multigrain flour, you can create a rustic pizza with a unique mix of flavors and an interesting texture. It is an excellent option for those who love to experiment and surprise their palate.

But which one to choose? The answer depends on your personal tastes and dietary needs. If you are undecided, why not try all three and find out which one you like best?
