00 flour: necessary for pizza?

You're right. I see that he says 50/50 on his page.

And I understood that's why you were talking about it. I still think it made a big difference for me for the pizza I made this weekend. But like I said before: it is just me, just one opinion. That is all.

And now? Now I am done contributing to this.

00 flour: necessary for pizza?

Now THAT would be awesome. I live in an apartment and can only go to 550. It works. I am not complaining.

Like I said, I personally loved the 00 on its own. HOWEVER. I am always willing to improve and learn, especially when it comes to pizza, which I have been working on perfecting for two years now.

So I will give it a go next time using the 65/35 KA bread/00 ration you specify, with his measurements, and let you know how it comes out. Thanks. :)

00 flour: necessary for pizza?

I understand and I am not disputing this necessarily. All I know is what I experienced and that is that the 00 flour gave me a pizza closer to what *I* prefer. I typically use KA, and once used White Lily (someone gave me a bag, I should never have used it for pizza dough), and the fact remains that the 00 flour pizza I made on Saturday, with no other changes to my recipe or my technique, gave me something much more satisfying to make and eat. For me. And me alone. Just one opinion. ;)

00 Flour in OC

Well then it really seems to come and go. I'm at Claro's often for sausage and cheese, so I'll just check each time I go.

Still, if all else fails, you can get it at Cortina's, which I did on Saturday. And I disagree with Joe Blowe. It made the best pizza I have ever had and I made no adjustments to my usual recipe/method other than the 00 flour. As far as I'm concerned, it's the last perfect piece of the home pizza puzzle.

Ooo they have it at Cortina's? I've been meaning to go there anyway; now I have one more reason. Thank you!

00 Flour in OC

I found it at Claro's in Tustin about 6 months ago; I guess they no longer have it then. Have you tried the Claro's in La Habra as well?

Best recommendation is to order 00 flour off Amazon. If you're intent on making it this very weekend, then why not try with AP flour? It certainly works perfectly well and you can always get the 00 delivered for next time...
