  • "00" Flour

    Is there a big difference between Caputo "00" Blue and Caputo "00" Pizzeria flours???

    Not a lot. The pizzaria flour has a slightly higher protein content. They are both heat tolerant for wood fired oven use. They both make a smooth and extensible skin.

    As an experiment I made a pizza skin from AP flour with a little whole wheat. The texture was quite different, but the big change was that the spots with char just had a burnt taste instead of that dark intense flavor you get with the Caputo flours.

      Dmun,

      Thanks for the info. Unfortunately the only oven I have is a conventional one which only goes to 550 degrees. I use a pizza stone on the very bottom floor.
