The Spinata

Much more than a simple pizza, something deliciously different from a traditional “piadina”. The “Spinata” is made from a home-made light and crispy pasta created with a selected mix of different types of flour, one of them derived from spinato corn. Giacomo Zucca, owner of a bakery in the nearby village of Casnigo, worked on the “Spinata” project. This baker is also the inventor of “Garibalda”, the bread type which the House of Commerce of Bergamo choose in 2009 as the most typical bread of the Bergamo area. The “Spinata” can be tasted at Restaurant Locanda Ristorante Centrale, located in the heart of ancient Gandino.
