Type 00 Pizza Flour [Moved from Home Cooking board]

Can anyone recommend a good source for consumer size packages of type 00 pizza flour? Online or NYC stores. Thanks.

    1. King Arthur Flour sells it on their website, though it's called something else.

        K-A sells 00 flour as "Italian-Style Flour" Item number 3338. $4.95 per 3 lb bag.

          Thanks--I checked K-A first. They sell "Italian" flour, which they describe as a "counsin to type 00". I was hoping to find reliable source for real type 00 flour from Italy, if possible.

      2. I did a quick google and found this. I assume you did the same.

        Is it too much flour?

          Yup and Yup. Odd how this isn't readily available in local gourmet markets...Flour is a hard sell online for a consumer as it is heavy and expensive to ship therefore...

          1. re: Ora

            I agree. I recall a place on Arthur Ave shipping it but haven't found any 411 on that in my google searches.

            Maybe an excuse to go to Italy?


          I buy nearly all my pizza-making ingredients from them--including 6 in 1 ground tomatoes, low-moisture Grande mozzarella, and the best pepperoni you'll find anywhere.
