Calling all Canadians - Caputo 00 Pizzeria
« on: May 21, 2019, 12:46:40 PM »
Has anyone in Canada found a source for Caputo 00 Pizzeria flour?  Every resource on this board has gone dry or is not in business

MVR Cash and Carry.  You can also call Eccolo foods & get it there.  Caputo has been absolute crap as of late.  You're better off with 5 Stagioni.

Eccolo will sell to you.  Not sure what's up with Caputo however the finished dough has been very lumpy; water absorption issues.

My last 12lb bag was from BrickOven Baker in the US and it has been working fine.  Maybe the batch you have is bad.  I would email Caputo.

I would consider Farina Le 5 Stagioni but I do not know what has to change to make it work (extra water, etc)

I've had a distributors here in Houston tell me that excess moisture in the flour/lumping have been a near constant problem for years. At least one stopped carrying it for a couple years because of this and the number of returned bags.

You can use 5 Stagioni just as you would Caputo. 58-62% Hyd works well.

That's not my experience & I have taught many classes using this flour.  Just try it & see for yourself.

https://www.costcobusinesscentre.ca/Ardent-Mills-Primo-Mulino-Neapolitan-Style-Pizza-Flour%2c-20-kg.product.100299011.html

Only at Costco Business Center in Scarborough (note limited hours), not regular Costco.  Accepts regular Costco membership.  In-store price about $14-$15 for 20 kg. It says Neapolitan-style although '00' is not mentioned anywhere.
