Tipo 00 Flour

Tipo 00 flour, also known as doppio zero flour, is a finely milled Italian flour. It is considered a high-quality, soft wheat flour with a very fine texture. The “00” refers to the grind size, and Tipo 00 flour is the finest grind available. It is often used in traditional Italian pizza and pasta recipes, as well as for making delicate pastries and cakes.

This flour is known for its low gluten content, which results in a smooth and elastic dough. It is particularly suitable for making thin-crust pizzas, fresh pasta, and certain types of bread where a delicate texture is desired. Keep in mind that while Tipo 00 flour is popular in Italian cuisine, you can also find similar finely milled flours in other regions with different names and characteristics.
