It has a very fine texture and low gluten content, which makes it ideal for producing a thin, light, and crisp pizza crust. Advantages of using 00 Flour include its light and airy texture, its ability to absorb more sauce and oil, and its ability to hold its shape when baked. Additionally, the low gluten content makes it easier to digest and less likely to cause stomach upset than other flours.

00 flour, also known as double zero flour, is a type of Italian flour that was developed in the late 19th century. It is a finely ground white flour, made from durum wheat that is milled with a “00” grind. The 00 in the name refers to the fineness of the grind, which is the most finely ground flour available. This type of flour is used in Italian and Neapolitan-style pizza doughs and is prized for its ability to create a crisp, yet light dough. It is also used for breads, pastries, and pasta. The finely ground texture of 00 flour is what gives it its ability to create a lighter and crispier pizza crust.
