All-purpose flour vs. Bread flour
« on: Today at 10:14:26 AM »
Can the experienced members explain which type of flour is better to use?

For example, I heard for Sicilian pies (esp. if you want a crispy bottom crust), one should use bread flour.


Eagerly awaiting the informative responses.

9slicePie,

The type of flour to use is often dictated by the type of pizza one wants to make, although even then there are many types of pizzas that can be made using different flours. You might get some insights in this recent post where I tried to address the subject:
