The "00" flour has a beautiful white colour. The "00" indicates that it is the purest and whitest flour available on the market. Finely sifted, it has an aspect and texture that evokes lightness. This product will be your best asset in making a successful pizza dough. Once baked, the crust will be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Our "00" flour is perfect for making pizzas and focaccia. The dough requires only 90 minutes to rise, but can be prepared the day before.
The gluten contained in this flour gives the dough great elasticity, which is essential if the dough is to be rolled out correctly. When it comes out of the oven, you get a nice crust and a well-structured honeycomb.
The "00" flour gives a lot of flexibility to the dough. To obtain this high quality product, the best cereal grains are selected from a highly controlled supply chain. The selected grains are then cleaned in two steps: first, they are dry-cleaned to remove all impurities; second, the wheat is washed with water. The mill where Favuzzi "00" flour comes from is the last in Italy to use this traditional method of water washing, which allows all impurities to be removed and softens the grains to make them easier to grind.
The mill, specialized in the production of premium grade flours, has been grinding cereals since 1832 on the initiative of Mrs. Ernesta. Since 1930, the Renzo and Dellagiovanna families have maintained a precious balance between tradition and innovation.
Grains are selected with the greatest care before being subjected to a series of laboratory tests to assess their quality, strength and elasticity. Grains are then stored by type, in modern silos using cold technology that protects them from overheating.
The artisans behind this flour choose to take their time to produce a high-quality product: the different steps of processing, cleaning and grinding are interspersed with standing time so that moisture can penetrate into the grains and thus soften them.
