I use King Arthur bread flour and have been happy with it, it suits my taste.  Some day I'll get some 00 semolina ...

I have some Bob's Red Mill semolina flour

is that the same as 00 semolina?

I also just noticed on the label that I should keeep that in the 'fridge.... OOOOPS

 

I usually use Gold Medal Bread flour, salt, water and olive oil

I might re-think that

00 means very very very fine.  It should be as fine as your bread flour.  But plenty of people use coarse semolina as well, it just gives a different texture.  There are no rules, anything goes.

 

Bread flour doesn't work for me, it works, but not for me.  I don't like the texture, it makes my pizza chewy and I'm not looking for that.  It's fun to experiment with other flours.  I wonder what it would be like with cake flour.

Any of you guys here grill pizza? I have been doing it for a little while, occasionally have to finish it in a very hot oven because the crust will char before the pizza and toppings are perfect. However i love that smokey char flavor you can get from a grill that you can't duplicate in an oven.

cake flour

Hmmm

That's an interesting idea KK

 

@ shaunmac, I have seen grilled pizza, but never tried it, we'll have to try that too!!

worth a shot like i said just be careful not to burn it. But that crispy char flavor really adds to it
