I'm in the area and have not seen Caputo Flour in any of the "major" supermarkets (Giant, Safeway, etc.).

I'm about half-way through my second order of Caputo; I've bought from both the Forno Bravo and Sur la Table sites.  A quick Google of either of these two will get you there.

Hope this helps.

I've also never seen it sold around here. You can order repacked bags from Penn Mac, http://www.pennmac.com/, in Pittsburgh.

There is an Italian/Gourmet market in Bethesda called, I believe, "Cornucopia". It has a nice selection of Italian foods, although the prices are a bit on the high side.

The proprietor does stock small bags of Caputo flour (approx 5 pounds, I think). I don't believe it is the Pizza flour, but the proprietor indicated that it makes a great pizza. I have not yet tried it. The store is located on Norfalk avenue.

Good luck and please let us know if you try it and how it works out.

Stumbled upon a source of Caputo Pizzeria Flour in the DC area. There is an Italian style market called "Vace", which has two locations, one in Bethesda and one on upper Connecticut Avenue in DC. Yesterday I visited the Bethesda location to pick up some Mozzarella and was surprised to see small bags of Cuputo flour on the shelf. The bags were red and labeled "The Chef's Flour". There is a picture of a pizza on the label, and I believe I read that this flour from Caputo is, in fact, the same as the Pizza flour. The bag was about 2.5 pounds and cost $2.50. They had about 6 bags on the shelf (now 3).

I realize this is an old thread, but in case anyone is still looking, I can confirm the Vace's is still stocking the little 1kg bags of Caputo flour. Just picked some up this week and can't wait to use it!
