Best supermarket flour in Germany
« on: December 30, 2021, 11:38:56 PM »
Hi,

does anybody here live in Germany and can give me advise which is the best supermarkt flour to make homemade Neapolitan style pizza? Unfortunately there isn´t any caputo flour in the supermarkets available.

If you can have access to a Metro, they stock both Caputo pizzeria and saccorosso in 25kg bags, otherwise it's also available from Amazon for a price that isn't too bad.  I used to get it from Metro through a friend, but I decided I'd rather pay a bit more from Amazon rather than hassle my friend.  I get Mutti pelati from the same Amazon vendor.

Thank you for your answer. No I don´t have a Metro nearby. I also thought about buying it online but I was affraid that I waste the flour because of poor pizza making. From time to time I still experimentalize with different recipes. Maybe I buy it in future. If somebody knows an alternative I would also be thankful. Happy new year btw.

If you buy online you can buy in 1, 5, or 25kg sacks. Considering how many pizza one can make from a 5kg sack (and the resulting cost per pizza), I don't think that the higher price and transport is really a problem.

The German Aldi Supermarket chain has had a store in my town here in Australia for a couple of years now.
The house brand flour makes a nice pizza in my WFO.
I doubt it would be the same four in Germany though. The label says it is Australian flour.

I would ask the owner/manager of a local bakery and see what they would recommend or maybe what they could get for you!

Sebastian901,

You can definitely try local flours from the supermarket as a start. I remember the Lidl flour I used sometimes (ok it was more than 10 years ago, but still) wasn't that bad. Try a refined flour (type 400~500 you know) with 12~% protein so you get enough gluten structure. I'm sure you can really get something decent out of it!
