Cup4Cup Flour
« on: September 13, 2014, 09:47:57 PM »
After reading through and searching the forums I was unable to find any reference for using Cup4Cup flour in a GF pizza dough recipe.  I'm currently building a sourdough starter using this flour with great results and will post some pictures when I get some time.  I will then try to make a near perfect pizza dough recipe.  If for any reason I have missed someone already using the Cup4Cup flour with success please let me know.  I have had great success making GF pasta and many GF desserts using this flour, where you can not tell the difference between actual flour and GF flour.  I will report back (with pictures) once I have made some test runs.

Cheers,
Zorin

I've heard great things anecdotally about Cup4Cup.  Really looking forward to seeing your results!

I made dough for the first time today with cup4cup flour. I've been frying with it and making waffles with it for a few months and so far have been really impressed. I'm considering using it in place of AP flour for everything at my new restaurant.
Here's my formula:
100% cup4cup
62% hydration
.3% IDY
1% salt
1% evoo
It was way too goey coming out of the mixer so I added quite a bit extra bench flour so realistically the final hydration was quite a bit lower.
I'm going to let if cf for 36 hours or so then press it into an oiled pan to bake. I'll post pictures of the final product when I get there.

Thanks for posting. Can't wait to see the pizza.

We have been using cup4cup also for biscuits and pancakes, it's a great product.

Here are a couple of the pies I made with the cup4cup flour. There is defintely some room for improvement but it turned out better than I expected.

I see you're outside. What oven did you cook your pie in? 
My friends say I am the best pizza maker there is.  But I know better.

Wild.  OK thanks.  I'm going to try it on my WFO this weekend.  Did you by any chance try the 3 day CF and a 0 day ferment by any chance?  I'm just curious as to what effect the 3 day CF has on non-gluten flours.

used this AP flour instead of pizza flour, not bad basil pesto(house made), spinach with smoked mozz. quadrillo cheese, caramelized onions and roasted pecans.
