Master Class dough with 00 flour - any adjustments to amounts?


I want to make the master class dough. But can I use 00 flour as that is all I have!

Hi Kiran, you'll end up with a very different end result. 00 flours are typically low protein (~11%) and the high gluten flours are in ~14% range. It doesn't sound like a big difference, but it's quite noticeable when handling the dough.

Typically, 00 flours are cooked in higher temperature ovens and the dough formulations tend be simple- no oil or malt.

If it's your first time making pizza, then I'd try to find high gluten flour. If you're in the mood for experimenting, then go for it!

The water absorption is also different BUT I have made a somewhat successful cross between neapolitan style and NY style by creating this dough :

500 g 00 caputo red
605 g water
5 g of olive oil
12 g of sea salt
.5 g of instant yeast.

Bulk 18 hours room temp, balled 6 hours at room temp in individual containers.
Broiler method. See my most recent pizza with this recipe at my instagram page @mancinifood I made it with fresh tomatoes.

Or, maybe, 305 g water . . .

Ditto on what Raj already said.

Do you have a supermarket that sells bread flour? That type flour tends to have a higher amount of protein as the 00 but not as high as a High-gluten flour such as All Trumps, for example.

But bread flour is a good alternative in combination with a longer fermentation. King Arthur bread flour would be my first choice.
