I want to make pizza but the problem is I am out of all purpose/self rising flour and I have a lot of cake flour in my kitchen, will it still be fine if I make my pizza dough with cake flour.

I won't be the same, but it should still be edible. Whether or not that's good enough for you is your call.

I wouldn't waste the time or effort. Flour used for pizza has a higher protein content than cake flour. The cake flour crust won't have a good texture. See http://slice.seriouseats... a good explanation.

The cake flour dough bakes through, but has a lot of shortcomings as a pizza dough. It would be edible but I wouldn't consider it enjoyable. But that's just me...

I'd have to say no as well. I used bread flour on the last pizza and it was chewy, delicious!

I'm not a baking expert but could you precook the dough, then top it and finish in the oven this way it doesn't get flattened out . If you make the dough thicker like a Sicilian pie you might be okay. Any thoughts guys?
