Pizza Flour with dough enhancers
« on: September 24, 2008, 10:28:09 AM »
Is there a professional level pizza flour on the market that comes with a full blown array of dough enhancers such as relaxers, sophisticated enzymes and such?

Randy,

There are some millers who make pizza flour mixes for the foodservice industry and for many of the chains. An example of such a miller is Pendleton's, as noted at http://www.pfmills.com/pfmweb.nsf/premiumpizzamixes.htm. Some foodservice companies also sell pizza flour mixes, such as Roma Foods (see http://www.romafood.com/atlanta/products.cfm?keyword=pizza+mix&ptype=search&dist_id=3).

I have not seen pizza flour mixes with a wide array of additives beyond the standard vitamin package and possibly ascorbic acid and enzymes like amylase, although it is possible that millers will add them under certain conditions if requested by a customer. These days, most flours used by the big chains are proprietary pre-mixes/blends that are made for them on a custom basis. An example of a miller who does this sort of thing is Bay State Milling, as noted at http://www.bsm.com/Services/CustomBlends.aspx.
