50lb Flour Bags in the Bay Area


I was wondering if anyone knows where I can buy high gluten flour for the new york style pizza in the Bay Area.

I've been using General Mills All Trumps High Gluten Flour - Unbleached Unbromated, purchased from Amazon, but my friends and I are doing weekly pizza nights trying to improve our skills and this doesn't seem super cost effective.

Does Tony sell large bags at his location in SF?

Hey Shelby, We have over a dozen flours available on the Pizza Bible store including 6 high gluten flours. All Trumps is one of the more popular items.

If you buy in 20lb quantities, the shipping ends up being a lot more reasonable than some of the other sellers online including Amazon. The other benefit is that you can try out a lots of different brands/types of flours.

Here's the link: http://store.thepizzabible.com

Hope this helps.

I agree with Raj. The PB store has an abundance of extremely good flours and is definitely worth checking out.

However, if you really need a 50lb sack, I'd recommend calling Central Milling/Giusto's Bakery supply in Petaluma and ask for a sack of Tony's High-gluten 00 flour. I have used it with great success and I don't think there's anything his flour can't handle.

Very easy to work with and extremely versatile.

I agree with Mike, although All Trumps does a very good job with Sicilian pizzas (we tried the Pendleton, but it was not our favorite. Much better than retail flours like KA, but not in the same league. Another flour you might want to try, Shelby, is the High Mountain High Gluten flour available at central milling-I am not sure if I can tell much of a difference between it and Tony's Artisan, although I think there is a titch of perceived sweetness in Tony's that I like...

which Pendleton? The Power? That flour is great compared to most that are out on the market and used by many pizzerias today, especially here. Well, maybe with the exception of the AT bromated version.

I got really great results with the Power in the past. But everybody has different preferences :)

It was the Pendleton Power. I am not saying that we did not like it. I am just saying that we prefer Tony's Artisan, Central Milling High Mountain Hi Gluten, All Trumps, then Pendleton Power as our go-to flours in that order. We still have some Pendleton, but I notice that I tend to pass it by. I think that they all perform well, but when it comes to taste, we prefer the order stated...

Cash & Carry on Van Ness Avenue in San Fransisco sells 50 lbs bags of Pendelton (now Grain Craft) Power Flour for less than $18.00 per bag. Cash & Carry is also located in Oakland and San Jose. By the way, Cash and Carry is open to the public.
