substituting king Arthur for caputo
 
can you bake at high temperatures using king Arthur sir lancelot. i was under the impression that it will burn in a wfo over 750 degrees

I have used KA Sir Lancelot with no problems. I can't imagine a real world basis for it being any different (burning wise) than any other flour at proper hydration.

i thought the malted barley helped browning and it is not present in caputo. this is why caputo only works at the high temperatures of a wood oven

I have learned that OO is only for high temp...but you know..it is not that forgiving...I find that if the oven is not hot enough it wont brown...obviously...but at the higher temp you have to be more accurate with oven control.. I have tried a few round at about 600 with a combination of bread flour and all purpose... even tried some high gluten...they seem a lot more forgiving and easier to work with. I know that the 00 is the real way..but you know...we really like the other way. too

yes, i know 00 only works at hi temp. i wonder if it is necessary to over proof king Arthur to make it work at 750 degrees

Not necessary. Give it 2 days rise in the refig.,,, take it out at least 3hrs before you want to eat. Do not re-shape the balls if they have a lot of small air bubbles in them.

The other Way is The Way!
You do not need 00...

You need More heat!

I use KA exclusively, the bread flour. I have not tried Sir Lancelot. I found that I actually preferred KA to Caputo.
IMO, hydration and handling are much bigger pieces of the puzzle than flour.
Until I went sourdough, I used the "standard" IDY dough recipe found on this site with excellent results. I like my oven/hearth AT LEAST 750F for pizzas. That is on the cooler end of where I like things, actually.
I outlined my sourdough procedure here: http://www.fornobravo.com/forum/f10/...ust-12653.html
There are several other great threads on the subject in the pizzas category as well.

Here's one from my last firing...carmelized onion, chevre, rosemary, yum. With my sourdough crust as described in the link above.

Keep cooking and experimenting and be the keenest observer you can at all stages of dough and pizza making. I still learn something every time I do dough and fire my oven.
