For pizza bases I also use the Allied Mills Pizza flour, but have also been impressed with the Lighthouse brand pizza flour also available at Australian supermarkets.
For Australian readers, what do you call Woolworths if it burnt down?

The Superb Baker's flour is the clear winner - particularly when you consider that the cost is about 1/3 of the speciality ones.

Nice to try the Italian stuff though once in a while - and I intend to get to Caputo too when the price isn't so outrageous here in Oz.

I just posted this on another thread. I am a Canadian currently visiting Australia. I saw Molini Pizzuti Fine Italian "00" flour on the shelves at Woolies the other day. I have used it in Canada with good results... Sold in 1 kg bag's though

Yes the Mollino oo flour is good, also available in Australian supermarkets is Lighthouse Pizza and Bread flour which is even better.

The Molino flour has a low protein content and I have not found it suitable for pizza making. Lighthouse is OK but for a local product it's overpriced. Still the firm favourite is Superb Baker's Flour at $1 per kg. The Colavita has a high protein content and if you want a good (but pricey) Italian 00 then treat yourself to that...

Yay! This has finally made its way to my Coles....

Just knocked up a batch of dough and it is silky smoothy! I'll let you know what I think of it tomorrow night. I've been using the lighthouse stuff for all my pizza dough before, so hopefully I can compare the 2.

Hi Guys,
Just finshed using this flour for the first time last night....and I must say it made the best bases I have cooked! Even my wife who is hard to please with pizzas said it was the best she has had. Cheers Rossco for putting us onto it...will be using this flour from now on
