Anyone heard of this flour?

Locally available in Perth, Australia.

Am trying out the pizza variety right now (but n reading the label it says it is ""0" not "00". The blue in the pic is ""00" but doesn't mention suitability for pizzas so I assume that it is for stuff like pasta. See the label on the "pizza" type in the pic for additional info.

Anyone tried this brand out? I recall using the "00" one a few years ago but don't recall that it produced particularly good results.

It may be worth trying to blend the "00" with other flour like the Baker's flour I have been using to see what sort of results that produces.

Back to the job at hand ...

Hi Rossco!

Try this site. Looks like it has good info. Molini is a respectable manufacturer.
Italian Flours

Interesting - Thanks Jay.

Verdict from tonight's bakeoff using the new Molini pizza flour = prety good. Nice and pliable dough. The big test will happen this weekend in the WFO though..

I have used both.
The blue bag 00 is my preference.
Very soft and easy to work with.

Thanks Antonio ...

Since this post I found a really great product which I will be using for all of my future pizzas: Weston Milling - Milano Pizza Flour. This is a fantastic product but only available in Australia I believe (where Milano Caputo isn't freely available).
