    Will this flour perform in a home oven at its highest temperature.

      Don’t know about their exact recipe, but this is our favorite. I use 3-1/2 cups caputo 00, 1 tsp caputo (or fleischman’s) dry yeast, 1 slightly-high tsp. sugar, 1-1/2 tsp kosher salt, 1-1/2 TBSP EV olive oil, and 1-1/3 cups of warm water. Mix then divide in two. Freeze one. Let the other rise anything from a couple of hours. Bake at 475-500 for 12 min or whatever you like. Dough can go in fridge and rise overnite, or more. But the fresh dough with a two hour rise turns out a tasty crust. The little bit of sugar, according to some chef or another, aids browning in the low temperatures of a home oven – 475-500. The Caputo 00 flour is available broken down in small packages on amazon. I wish their tomatoes were available to the home buyer.
