Default Caputo Flour in Perth

Hi everyone,

Great website and forum!

Does anyone know if it is possible to buy Caputo flour in Perth, Western Australia and if so where?

Thanks in advance!
Piece (of pizza) be with you.

I have been on a quest to find it locally in Perth - no luck unfortunately. I tried Kakulas, Re Store, All about bread and a few others but no one had even heard of it - Sadly!!!

Looks like the only option is to order from Sydney @ $140 /bag if you really want it. I think for now I will just use the Defiance brand Bakers Flour. Have had good results with it and the price is right...

I went to Rising in the Yeast (Myaree) yesterday and they were very helpful. They did not know about Caputo but said that they would look into sourcing it if possible. If they can get it in i will post.

Cheers

I chatted to Rod who runs Variety Foods again recently and whilst he is a very big (if not the biggest) supplier of pizza flours in Perth, he reckoned that he can't get hold of it.

This seems to be your only hope in Oz: Flours and Breads | Mulino Caputo | Pizzeria Flour 25kg

I have done a lot of experimenting with local Superb Baker's Flour and I am quite happy using that. No way I will be paying $140 + shipping for Molino Caputo when I can get the same size bag of Superb for $25.

I am a Canuck currently visiting your fair country. I was in Woolworths the other day and saw some Molini Fine Italian "00" flour on the shelves there. I have used that brand in Canada and found it to be a good alternative. It is sold in the smaller 1 kg bags.

Just bringing back this thread from the depths, anyone in Perth (or Australia for that matter) have any luck sourcing this flour?

I tried to purchase from Lario's but have just been told the stock they have has expired

I bought a 25 kg bag of Caputo Blue (from over east) and may be able to spare some in you are interested in getting a few kgs. It is by far the best flour for pizzas. If it's good enough for Da Michele in Naples it's good enough for use in Perth ... :-). I'm away at the moment but should be back in Perth by the weekend...

My supplier had some expired stock as well and was not sure when they were getting any back in so I bought the expired Caputo flour... I thought if it was properly stored, there should be no problem. It was fine and used up just as the new stock finally came in.

very generous offer heliman appreciate it, looking to stock up on a decent quantity to tide me over for a few months so hopefully I can source some elsewhere!

I did consider it spunkoid, but I just can't justify paying $140 + postage for flour thats expired!

They did offer the smaller 1kg red bags, but from what I've read here the blue bags are superior?
