Hi Everyone,

I promised to tell you how to get your hands on some of that great flour from Central Milling, as well as the “Super Sprout” sprouted whole wheat flour from Lindley Mills. So first, here’s the number for Keith and Nicky Giusto at Central Milling, in Petaluma, California: (707) 778-1073. Ask for Keith or Nicky and tell them you read it right here. Before you do, check out their website at www.centralmilling.com/  They have many types of organic flour but what you should be asking for, if you have a wood-fired oven, is the new Double Zero (-00-) “Normal.”  You can also ask them about their Double Zero “Reinforced,” which I think is more appropriate for a home oven. If you can talk them into selling some other types as well, go for it!

As for Lindley Mills, call them in Graham, NC at (336) 376-6190 and ask for Joe Lindley. You can tell him you read it here. OR, you can also order the flour via the King Arthur Baking Catalogue, which many of you probably already receive (if not, get on their mailing list–the catalogues are fun to read and they have all sorts of cool things for sale). It won’t indicate “Super Sprout” or Lindley Mills but will be sold as Sprouted Wheat Flour. Wherever you get it, you’ll have fun working with this flour. Next week I’ll post some recipes for making pizza dough with all three of these flours (Normal, Reinforced, and Sprouted Whole Wheat).

I don’t know the price of any of these, so you will have to work that out when you call them, but I have a feeling there are lots of great pizzas ahead for all of us. We’d love to post your photos and pizza ideas if you come up with anything fun and exciting. Just let us know.

One more note: we’re starting a new webisode series on Thursday from california’s Central Coast. We’ll be spending most of the time (there are a number of segments coming up) at The Cass House Inn, but we’re going to kick it off with a stop we made as we were headed there, at the wonderful Taco Temple in Morro Bay, CA (you saw a snippet of this on our very first webisode, still posted at the top of the Home Page). Now you’ll get to see more of what got us all excited when we made the detour. Be sure to check it out on Thursday. Till then,

May Your Pizzas All Be Perfect!

Peter

I think I have done both, straight out of the fridge and room temp. You just need to stay close and use your nose, then let it sit after you turn off the heat, I think that’s key. The bottom will crisp up and be ready before the top.
