Adapting for UK flour?
« on: September 03, 2016, 01:22:38 PM »
Evening All.

I'm in the UK and UK flour is ground not cut like US flour, I know this makes a big difference making cakes but does it make any difference to pizza crusts and if it does how do I adjust the recipes to allow to it?

I rather please with my self, my latest pie came out more or less round with a distinct  crust and a crunchy base, although to make it easy on myself put it together on a bit of foil so it didn't stick on the peel.

Thanks.   Aamcle

A good question to put on Tom's (The Dough Doctor) thread over here....http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?board=65.0  You'll want to provide your flour specs

Hello Aamcle,

It is if you can source and find it.I have come across Wessex Mill and have excellent results for style Neo Pizza. Also i rate as a all rounder, Allison's strong 00 for any gig and is found in any store.
Do your homework and you will find it.

Pab.
