I live in Portland but travel to Seattle often on business.  I know I can get this flour from Forno Bravo but I'd prefer to skip the shipping costs.  Does anyone know where I can buy this flour locally?

rice22358,

I checked the Caputo distributors list and see Merlino Foods is a distributor in your area: http://fornobravo.com/brick_oven_cooking/pizza_ingredients/caputo_distributors.html. Not all distributors will sell to individuals on a cash-and-carry basis, but it is worth a call to Merlino. If they won't sell to you directly, you might ask them who in the area is a customer from whom you might be able to purchase the Caputo 00. It might be a pizza establishment or a reseller of some sort. When I call, I have found it useful--and successful in most cases--to tell them that I am a fanatic about pizza making and am desperate to find a source of flour at a reasonable price. They seem to respond favorably to that plea and try to be more helpful.

You didn't indicate which Caputo 00 flour you are looking for. You can double check on this but I believe that Forno Bravo sells only the Caputo Extra 00, which is a fairly recent Caputo product in the U.S. market. The Extra can be used to make pizza dough, but most of our members up to this point have been using the Pizzeria 00 flour.

Good luck. If you succeed in finding a source of the flour locally, please let us know since other members may benefit from your experience.

In Seattle, Big John's Pacific Food Importers has Caputo 00 Pizzeria flour for about $1/pound, as much or as little as you want.  They also have 55 lb. bags, but I didn't ask how much they are.  They also have the full line of Stanislaus tomato products, and several DOP San Marzano brands.

I bought a 55 lb. bag today, it was $38.50.  Seems like a pretty good deal to me.

Edit: remembered the price wrong

Just got the buyer at Pastaworks in Portland to order me a 55 lb bag of Caputo for $64.25. Way better deal than ordering from Forno Bravo at $55 plus shipping (an extra $34.75 to Portland)...

Bags were $38.50, works out to .69 per pound.

I'll be going back to Seattle at the end of September if anyone is interested in buying a 55lb bag.
