Caputo 00 Flour & Pliny the Elder
A good friend gave me some Caputo 00 Flour from Italy. I had a bottle of Pliny the Elder sitting around in my fridge, so I decided to put the two together to make some pizza dough tonight. This dough is very light and the Pliny the Elder beer is lighter in color. I think it was a perfect match since both are special in their own way. I have not used this flour before. Normally, I just use Pendleton Power Flour.
I did notice when using Caputo 00 Flour that I could have used less than 9 ounces of beer for the 4 cups of flour (which is my normal amount with Power Flour). I had to add more flour in my dough kneading process, as it was too sticky to work with before adding more 00 flour. Perhaps someone has a comment as to why this happened??? I am not familiar with Caputo 00 Flour.
After the kneading process, I did my usual coating the dough ball with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, before putting the dough ball into a freezer bag to cold rise for 24 hours.
I am really looking forward to this dough and will let you know the results soon.
