I'm looking to make a deep dish pizza and was curious if anyone was around this area that maybe knew of a place that's good for some of the specialty flours and what not? I'm hoping to make something similar to a gino's pie as far as crust so I'm not entirely sure what I should even use but this will be my first deep dish. I'm just going to use my cheesecake pan for now, it's like 2" deep although its not a dark colored pan it should be ok for now I think. Any help is greatly appreciated thanks.

By the way I'm near Youngstown and Hubbard. For now I'd just prefer if I could get some flour locally.

A quick trip to your local supermarket, and a stroll down the baking goods isle should put you in front of Pillsbury Bread Flour. This flour comes in at around 12% protein content, and should work quite well for a deep-dish pizza. While you're there, pick up a dark colored cake pan, it will work better than your silver colored cheese cake pan.

Well I found KAAP locally was just kind of hoping I could find some of the less common stuff locally maybe like Semolina and what not. Maybe there is an Italian market around here, I haven't seen those 6in1 tomatoes anywhere yet either.

 rulli brothers ausintown and boardman. if you need anything in particular i can get it for you in cleveland. i visit youngstown monthly. pm me. if you want ginos you have to use a low gluten a/p flour lots of oil and no salt.the chicago section has amazing dd recipes.

Yeah that's the section I was looking at. I know Rullibros will definitely check it out thanks! I just liked the way I've seen the gino's pies in video's where they cut it with the spatula you can tell it has a nice crispy and tender crust as the spatula just goes right through it.

Well Rulli Bros in Boardman was a goldmine for Italian ingredients! I was shocked by the isle of freshly ground spices! Freshly ground fennel, basil, oregano, pretty much anything you want. They also had a few different types of Semolina (which I didn't expect) one was their own packaged variety which was only .99 cents a lb and then they had 2 different brands of Italian imported stuff. I also found the 6 in 1 ground tomatoes there! At first I didn't see the smaller cans so I thought I had to buy the huge cans but upon another pass of the isle I found the small ones. Cheaper to buy the big cans as they were only like 5.54 a can but don't think I'd be able to use a big can before I'd have to throw it out. They also had a ton of imported Italian canned tomatoes and puree's. Here are some pics from the trip. They truly have a ton of imported Italian products which is nice to find where I live. Even a bunch of pasta machines and what not. I just wish it was a bit closer to my house now lol.

One thing to note, is I've been to the Austintown store a couple times and I don't remember it having as much of a selection, of course I wasn't looking for this type of stuff when I went before either.
