      Special Italian Flour. High protien... supposedly the secret of great pizza dough...


    2. My first thought would be Claros

      But call to make sure...


      1. 00 flour or doppio zero flour is typically used by italians for pizza, foccacia, sometimes pasta. the "00" refers to the grind or the fineness of the flour.

        the caputo brand can be bought at surfas in culver city or nicole's gourmet foods in south pas. make sure you call first as they don't always have it in stock. 626.403.5751.

        you can also buy the american clone by king arthur online - look for "italian-style flour". if you're baking pane rustica or making pizza dough, the caputo is good, but i really like the king arthur 65.

        1. Try Roma Market on Lake and Mountain or Eddy's Market on Michigan and Blanche (near Caltech).

          1. you can find that flour at bristol farms in pasadena, its sold in 5# sacks. they are about $5. good luck. also if you want caputo there is italgourmet in vernon which you could buy mass amounts.
