Where to find Caputo flour?

Erin Bennett Apr 17, 2008 11:44 AM

I'm looking for type 00 Caputo flour for pizza dough. Has anyone seen it in San Francisco? I was thinking of looking for it at local Italian markets, but thought I would check to see if anyone knows off hand. Thanks!

    If you can't find it locally, here's a great source for mail order.

      I think that I saw some at Lucca Ravioli on Valencia. If they don't have it, then you can mail order to King Arthur Flour. Their "Italian-Style Flour" is an American clone of 00 flour. http://www.kingarthurflour.com

        Thanks! I went to Lucca, and they do have it.

          There are various kinds of 00 flour. The number specifies the grind and whiteness, but protein and gluten levels vary. Some of the 00 flours intended for pasta might not give as good results as the Caputo "ideale per pizza" flour.
