doppio zero, tipo 00

What is it?

00 flour is a type of superfine Italian wheat flour used in pasta and pizza dough. In Italy, flour is classified as either 2, 1, 0, or 00, with the numbers referring to how finely the flour is ground. 00 flour is the most finely ground and powder-soft, but it also has high levels of protein and gluten, which give pizza dough a wonderful strength and elasticity.

Don’t have it?

Substitute all-purpose flour.

How to choose:

You can find 00 flour at Italian specialty markets or online.

How to store:

00 flour is a refined (not whole-grain) wheat flour and as such, can be stored as you would all-purpose flour: in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
