Here is a quick shout out to Dawn Foods who hooked me up with a 50Lb bag of King Arthur Flour, Sir Lancelot Brand high gluten (high protein) flour for my upcoming pizza class at Hollander’s on Sept 30.
It is really, really hard to get high gluten flour for home bakers. I usually have to order it directly from King Arthur, and it can be pricy when shipping is factored in. The closest thing that is available in grocery stores is bread flour, which is good but the pizza may be lacking the quality of your favorite pizza shop.
To be honest, I have no idea what I am going to do with 50 Lbs of flour. It is great for pizza and bagels, but is not a multi purpose flour.
Even so, 50 Lbs was the small amount I could buy. I figure that I can make 80 portions of pizza dough with this one bag. That enough for Pizza Night at my house for 40 weeks in a row.
I was thinking that I could start a pizza dough company.
