I know the brand but I never tried it .. the DOP marking is a good sign it's a certification but from the label description looks like they mix plain plum tomatoes with some s. marzano.. It's a small area near naples so they don't produce too many tomatoes sometimes they cheat using tomatoes from the same seed but not grown in the s. marzano region which makes a big difference in the taste and texture .. I will try the cento tomatoes my local supermarket does carry it

If I recall correctly the Type 00 flour is actually lower gluten than the bread flour we get here in the states , believe it or not what makes the napolitan pizza so superior is the crappy city water they have coming down the pipes which is also what makes their espresso taste so good
it's kind of like water going through a water softener

In that case it should work well for me. We have some of the hardest water in the world. So bad in fact, that it took me 2 years before I couldn't taste it anymore. (yes it has it's own flavor, and floaties too.)

But it doesn't bother me anymore. Most people never drink it and we have water stores everywhere around town.

Actually I like to simmer mine first with some black pepper, garlic, and fresh oregano.

Bad I know, but I love it that way.
