Sadly, no!

The closest would be pastry flour, however even though it has about the exact same protein content as Italian 00 (8-9%), the isn"t fairly the same. AP has 10-12% protein, and some brands, choose King Arthur or Hodgson Mills also can be exchanged because that bread flour.

I to be lucky, i can get Italian 00 (Caputo) in mass from one Italian grocery store, but if i were you, I would certainly mail order it.

Here is my European/American flour "translation".

Happy Easter!

pizza flour

The "00" in italian flour refers to the grind and I think ash content (how white the flour is basically). Many civilization regard Caputo "00" flour to it is in the gold conventional for pizza, which has a protein contents of 12.5%, slightly higher than King Arthur all-purpose flour. If pressed I"d to speak the 00 provides a far better crust, yet the KA all purpose flour makes a perfectly good crust together well, still better than i can gain in any type of pizza joint close to me at least.Now, unfortunately, the KA "00" layout flour they put out inexplicably has a protein contents of 8.5%. I haven"t make the efforts it, but the major Eats Pizza lab reports it to it is in a bad pizza flour.

You will certainly not it is in disappointed!

Home do pizza is around as good as the gets, odd one person said the 00 is 8-9 % and also pastry flour would certainly be close and one claimed its 12 5 % protein and also KA AP would certainly be close. My recollection is the 12 5 % is the real deal. I just include enough VWG to AP to obtain to 12% and call that close enough. The dough when rested in the fridge for 24 hours is silky, smooth and extensible yet strong It doesn"t know that no Caputo 00 was used? I"ve likewise used 105 come 11 5% protein flour and also they functioned well too .

I will have to shot baguette flour at a short protein and also see if we choose it far better Canlt make a poor pizza at house anyway!

Pizza making may not acquire the Thaichef to offer up to teach Thai Food yet it definitely is a great thing anyway:-) 

Happy Pizza baking
