Italian bread flours lower gluten content

Actually, more often it's the other way round. For a foccacia you would want a stronger gluten structure, like 12% protein.

00 flour is more finely ground than our bread flour, with a protein (gluten) content of about 9%. I love what it does for pizza dough. Here is a post I wrote on flour and focaccia, which by the way, is one of my all-time favorite breads to make.

I will differ to Boulangere on anything that has to do with bread or gluten.

Pierino, I think you mean 'defer,' because if you differ with Cynthia on anything that has to do with bread or gluten, she'll kick your ass (nicely, of course)... ;)

Ha! Yes, that's exactly what I meant. I hate that you can't edit your responses and I don't want my ask kicked.

Great LOL moment! Not in much of a kicking mood today - it's just lovely outside and I'm saving my strength for a bike ride before thunderstorms move in. A lovely weekend to you all!
