so far I have only found it at dairyland usa (chef's warehouse) in NY.  There must be more sources, though.   Try calling Orlando foods to find out.

Thanks Scott. I e-mailed chefs warehouse but got no response so I was looking for alternates. ;)

iceman06,

You might check out Merlino Foods as listed on the stocking distributors list at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,2594.0.html. They appear to be the closest distributor to you. Merlino does not sell to the public but they may give you the name of one of their customers in Alaska from whom you may be able to buy or order the Rosso flour. Also, sometimes a distributor will break its own rules and sell to an individual if they know you are a serious pizza maker, even a home pizza maker. They might also sell to you if you tell them you are thinking about opening a pizzeria and want to try out the flour. Sometimes it works but sometimes it does not. The Rosso is not the most popular Caputo flour so it is possible that Merlino may not have it in inventory.

Peter
