Caputo Rosso Pizza flour from La Cuisine
« on: August 29, 2006, 08:46:08 AM »
La Cuisine sells Caputo Rosso Pizza flour in 5 pond bags at $7,50 a bag but through August has a 15% discount coupon. The shipping charges are $6.50 for 1-3 bags and $9.50 for 4-6 bags. Flour is advertised as 13% protein and 00 tipo flour. La Cuisine is in Alexandria, Virginia and took 7 days to get an order  to Texas by ground shipping. I have never used Caputo Rosso Pizza flour and would be interested in comments about this flour.

Since joining this forum, I've begun using words like "autolyze" and have become anal about baker's percents.  My dough is forever changed.

Ciros's in Naples blends Rosso with Pizzeria about 50/50.  It is normally used for bread and adds a little weight to the pizza dough.  The pizza at Ciro's is excellent, but I don't think adding Rosso is necessary.  100 percent Pizzeria is just fine.
