Caputo 00 for Bread Flour

I ran out of bread flour. Can I substitute Caputo 00 pizza flour since it has more protein than All Purpose, or do I just use All Purpose? I am making ciabatta.

I usually use all purpose for ciabatta because it has less protein than bread flour.

Sorry but meant to add that 00 flour should also work fine if that's what you have.

Done. I just pulled the loaves out of the oven. They look really great. Hopefully they look just as good inside!

Thank you.

And of course 00 is also great for pasta making.

There is a great little Italian market in a residential neighbourhood in Vancouver that carries it. They do a lot of bulk foods for restaurants and sell some of the extras to the public. It's pretty amazing.

The bread turned out perfectly. It's so chewy and the crust is crisp without being tough or hard. It's the ciabatta recipe Boulangere posted on her site. It was super fun to make. It's a keeper.
