Advice needed - Colavita 00
« on: February 25, 2006, 12:35:30 PM »
The last time I made pizza I had a friend over.  As an appetizer he brought this great proscuitto that he gets from Bella Napoli, his favorite Italian grocer.  At his advice, I went there.  I usually go to Caroli's but I decided to try his.  The new place didn't have near the selection of Caroli's but I did find some Colavita Farina di Grando Tenero Tipo '00'.  Has anyone ever made pizza using that flour?

I am making some pizzas tomorrow and I just found out about another guest so I am planning on adding another pizza with the new flour.  I'll have to do a room temp rise for logistical reasons.  Any suggestions?

I decided that the best pie to make would be the room temperature dough from the A16 experiment.  I used the recipe/instructions located here:

I'll post my results in that thread.
