Flour

I am still searching for a good source of whole milk mozzarella that I like.

I always pickup a few cans of the Ciao tomatoes when I go to the Phoenicia Downtown. They are very good tomatoes. Phoenicia also carries Rega and Primio Italian tomatoes, but I have not tried them.

Costco sells a kosher shredded mozz that is excellent. It's the highest fat mozz I've ever seen anywhere. I forget the name, but it's the only aged mozz I've seen there and it only comes in shredded. There is no reasonably priced whole milk mozz for sale at retain in Houston that I've seen. If you can get into Restaurant Depot, they have a couple OK WM mozz in 5# logs for ~$2/lb.

Also, if you're making Neapolitan, HEB AP flour is unmalted and works fairly well.
