Tipo 1 Neapolitan Pizza

Neapolitan pizza is a Traditional Speciality Guaranteed (TSG) product in Europe, and the art of its making is included on UNESCO‘s list of intangible cultural heritage. This style pizza gave rise to the New York-style pizza that was first made by Italian immigrants to the United States in the early 20th century.

Why Tipo 1
Tipo 1 is an homage to the age old method of stone ground flours. Employing modern milling technique with the tradition of creating a flour that has added wheat germ and bran, TIPO 1 is a soft wheat flour with a distinctive color, rich wheat flavor and wonderful aroma. Great for use in rustic breads and pizza dough.

  1. When the market shelves went bare of flour in March, I ordered a 22# and a 55# bag of Caputo “00” online to stock up!
    Has there been a taste test of Tipo 1 and Caputo 00 done?
