Biga is a type of pre-fermentation that has been used in Italian baking since the 19th century and BigA is now introducing this light pizza to NYC, stating that "pizza has reached its ultimate healthfulness." The flavorful, easy-to-digest pizza boasts a particularly unique crust that is remarkable crunchy on the outside and light and airy on the inside. At BigA, the light, healthy and crispy slices are topped off with seasonal ingredients. While the star ingredients of a pizza are typically the toppings, BigA sets itself apart by spotlighting the pizza bread base.
As biga was originally created as an alternative to sourdough, it is emerging as a satisfying option for pizza lovers who are looking for a product that's minimally refined and nutrient-dense.
