Focaccia Barese – A True Taste of Italy
For the last three years, Pizza Nova has been blazing new culinary trails by bringing Canadians a bona-fide, authentic flavour experience straight from Italy: the Focaccia Barese.
This is a unique, oven baked Italian bread like you’ve never had before: made with Pachino-style tomatoes, roasted black olives and finally luxuriously rubbed with extra virgin olive oil from Bari.
Pizza Nova was granted the trademark and rights to offer this exclusive product from the Consorzio Focaccia Barese — that’s gourmet speak for the fact that it’s a product with a protected geographical status. A what? Much like some of Europe’s best wines and cheeses are labelled DOP to denote authenticity, Pizza Nova’s focaccia is made by a traditional method using approved ingredients and served in the proper manner.
These time-honoured traditions are taken very seriously in Italy — and at Pizza Nova too! As long time devotees to the art of pizza, they recognize perfection when they see it!
While it is true that their pizza has put them on the map and into the hearts of Canadian fans, Pizza Nova is equally proud to offer you something completely different — and they bet you’ll love it just as much. Serve it warm (3–4 minutes in a 450 degree oven) as a side to your favourite mains, as an appetizer at your next dinner gathering or as the perfect go-to snack.
Drizzle with some good, Italian olive oil once warm, and you’ve got a taste of Italy, at home. For an experience far beyond bread, let Pizza Nova’s Focaccia Barese tempt your taste buds. Buon Appetito!
