Pete-zza, Yes I get the Caputo pizza flour from them. They also carry a selection of other flours for the pizzeria market.

Our members are always on the lookout for sources of the Caputo flours. So they may be interested in knowing that one of our members, Frankie G, now offers The Chef's Flour from Caputo at his website at http://fgpizza.com/. I believe Frankie G is in California, which might be convenient for many of our members who live in the western part of the country.

I had a problem with Forno Bravo too. Took my order, then told me it was out of stock. I found Penn. Macaroni Co. and have had good luck with them. Seems to be about the best pricing for internet ordering. They sell a 10 pack of 2.2 lbs. bags for about $29 plus shipping.

My work finally took me near West Deptford  NJ just over the Ben Franklin Bridge.  I stopped in at Savona-Stavola food distributors and picked up a 55lb bag of Caputo for $31.  They also had All Trumps, but it was bromated.

For the record, I've never had any problem with Forno Bravo's service.
I bought my oven and other items throughout the last few years and they were always prompt and professional
I placed a small order on Monday..and it arrived today.
PennMac carries a lot of different items and are closer to me..

I have been getting my Caputo Pizzeria flour from Penn Mac and have been very happy with the shipping, packaging and promptness of service (not to mention the ability to get 5lb bags).

In the Baltimore, Maryland area, I have just confirmed that Saval Foods will indeed allow individuals to purchase 25kg (55lb) bags of Caputo Pizzeria:

You need to call in advance and ask to speak to a customer service rep, who will process the order under a Miscellaneous COD account. Give them one hour advance notice and you can go to Saval's location and pick up the bag. Orders must be paid for IN CASH. A 55lb bag runs $31.

Thanks to Pete-zza and the members of this forum, after 8-weeks of me chasing down leads on where I might be able to get Caputo flour and a few other "hard to get in northern Wisconsin" imported items, I was able to contact Greco & Sons distributing (commercial source) servicing northern IL & southern WI. They sent me a product list and a credit application, and they are setting me up with a sales rep. But I need to hit the will-call dock to get these items back up here. (300 miles each way)

Although they do not deliver to my area, I can make a monthly trip down there to get a pallet or two of those hard to get items, or work out a deal with an independent shipping company.
I do have a distributor that I use who comes up here from Milwaukee weekly, so maybe I can work out a deal between the two companies just so I do not need to do the drive, Time is money, and I can't afford my time being on the road for 8-12 hours doing this stuff on my one off-day per week.

 
Once I get our proposed business up & running, (approx. 60 days & counting down)and I am showing cash-flow positive, I may be able to help get some items out to people in other parts of the country by busting into my commercial stock, then repackaging non-perishable items into a shipping box, and getting them out to others. I have access to stanislaus, escalon, Caputo, and maybe even what is currently being called San Marzano tomatoes.

There has been some brainstorming of doing some imported deli items at the shop for retail, and finding this distributor may turn that thought into something. We have a tight selection up here, and a growing call for these items, So maybe I can fill that niche too?

tzoavva, I am going to Saval soon and trying to arrange a quick meeting to see what exactly can be purchased cash and carry.

I will inquire about the cheese and get back to you. The 2.2lb "Chefs" flour from Caputo is the same flour at the "Pizzeria" sold in the 55# blue bags. Take care -K

Anyone living in the northeast can buy Caputo Pizza flour in Boston at Accardi and Sons. Their website is not very good but if you call them they are very helpful. I buy 55 lb. bags for about $32. They also have other hard to find Italian products like speck ham.

I've been looking around Indianapolis trying to find a place that carries it. Delco's on 78th street carries it. $35 for a 55lb bag. I'd be happy to split it with some people if anyone is interested. I'm trying to find some smaller bags that don't cost an arm and a leg. I found FG Pizza in California. They sell a three pack (6.6lbs total) for $11.99. Shipping to Indy is $10.70

If you live in the Austin, TX area, Central Market on North Lamar near 38th St has Caputo 00. It's about $3.50 for a 1kg bag. It's right next to the King Arthur flours in the baking aisle.

Can anyone tell me the difference between "Caputo pizzeria 00 " and "Caputo red label 00"?
I saw Peter's comment about longer fermentation time but don't know what that means on a relative basis.

Just now getting into this....

Thanks in Advance!!!

At one time, there was clear answer to this question. Caputo has mixed up their packaging to the point that I'm no longer sure. According to the U.S. distributor, different colored bags contain the same flour.  ??? "Chef's" flour may (or may not) be the same as "Pizzeria" flour.  If you look at their web site:

http://www.molinocaputo.it/

the 25 kg "00 Pizzeria" now comes in a red bag. The most recent bag I received was blue.  ???

Bill,
It is a little confusing.  I have seen postings on the Italian sites that refer to the one color being stronger than the other color.  I guess Marco might have an answer.  Who knows, maybe they try to use what ever their surplus is in the States.

Maybe they're working through their inventory of English bags. Interesting note: the Japanese pizza maker on YouTube is using Caputo from a red bag. Whether this is the Pizzeria flour in the red bag or what we have known as "Rosso" isn't clear. I suspect it is the Pizzeria flour.

"Red" vs. Rosso, "Blu" vs. Blue, "Pizzeria" vs. Chef's - I'm just glad their forte is flour milling and not marketing/branding.

Bill,  Marcos response to the Japan videos thread:

"Very good videos.

However, that was clearly not an high hydration dough and he is using the red caputo (quite stronger then the pizzeria) which is comparable to am american high gluten minus additives.

I believe he over manipolate the dough ball when forming to show the technique, however the pizzamaker should be in control on how tight the ball forming is. I usually make it tighter if  I need to rest the ball for a long time and less tighter if I need them  sooner"

The red is slightly stronger and the blue pizzeria is milled slightly finer with granules that are more uniform in size.  In Naples, I saw some places use exclusively the red, some exclusively the blue, and some that mixed the two.

Heading home(southern Connecticut along I-91 South from the top of Vermont.  Wondering if anyone can give me a heads up on a Caputo source pretty close from an exit.  I called all my usual sources around home, but none have any on hand.  I have really been wanting to make some pizze when I get home, so please help!
