Right now Amazon does not report what flour it is. Well mine was the "Farina Molino Borgo San Dalmazzo", in original packages, not the repackaged versions that are common in the US.

Unfortunately I had the same experience as others here, in that this product was absolutely not what it is supposed to be.
The smell was clearly weird as I opened the packages, but I did not trust my own nose so I cooked pizzas with this anyway.
I had to throw the whole thing away because nobody was able to eat the pizzas, given the moldy taste and smell of the dough.
The strange thing is that mine was way before the expiration date (I got it in July 2012 and the expiration was October 2013). My guess is that it was at some point stored in a very humid or hot place. It was in fact in big, hard to break chunks, which happens when the flour has been exposed to humidity.

Too bad because it is rare to find 00 type flours anywhere in the US, and they are an absolute must, to make italian-style pizza.

Amazon gave me a refund when I explained the problem. In place of this, I bought the flour "Caputo Pizzeria" in a local store, which I am still using. It works great, the batch I got was fresh, but costs twice as much as this.

Anyway if you get a working package that is not moldy, the Borgo San Dalmazzo flour is "stronger" than the Caputo Pizzeria (strength of a flour is its capability to resist over time to the breadmaking process). This is a W280 while the Caputo Pizzeria is a W260. What this means is that in general you have to wait for longer for this to rise, compared to the Caputo Pizzeria, which is a medium strength flour.

I give 3 stars because this product as it is sold by amazon is just awful and unusable.

I was hesitant to try this based on the other reviews but decided to order anyway. Upon receipt, the first thing I did was check the expiration date and found it to be only eight days from when it was delivered to my door. I opened one package and the flour smelled fine, but there is no way I can use all five before the product expires. It may be okay to use, and I'll probably try and make pizza crust with it, but I'm certain it is not as fresh as it should be.

Amazon customer service was excellent, and they immediately refunded the purchase price. Amazon should do better in ensuring perishable products have a reasonable shelf life upon delivery.

*** IMPORTANT UPDATE: After placing my original review I realized that because this flour is from Italy, the expiration date on the packaging ("010813") is in DD/MM/YY format (vs. MM/DD/YY in the U.S.), therefore the expiration date on the flour is actually August 1st vs. January 8th, 2013. I quickly called Amazon and requested that they cancel the refund.

I have not tried the flour yet - and will add to this review when I do.

However, I was very impressed with the packaging. The flour comes in the typical paper packaging that most flour comes in (but this was especially interesting because it was all in Italian. Pretty nice and obviously authentic Italian flour). But surrounding each bag of flour was bubble wrap individually fitted around each one. Not that flour needs to be protected that much, but I thought the extra effort involved in this packaging was very impressive.

Have used this flour several times now, in making pizza. It's probably just as good as the Antimo Caputo 00 flour, which costs quite a bit more on Amazon. It's ground just as fine, which is what the 00 distinction means. It's a higher protein flour than our pastry flour, so using either pastry flour (too little gluten) or all purpose flour (not ground fine enough) doesn't work nearly as well as this flour in making authentic Italian pizzas.

The flour is perfect for pizza dough. At our last pizza party we got only compliments on how great the crust was. Yes, the packaging was different, no different then buying in a store, though, and definetely not expired! Great product, will buy again!

I live in a rural area that has no pizza restaurant nearby, much less delivery; therefore, I have had to learn how to make my own pizza. Thus far I have done pretty well, I think, making pizzas for my family. Flour in the US cannot replicate very well the thin-crust pizza that I've been craving and as I've been wanting to try the Italian 00 flour for a while, I decided to splurge and see if I could get that crispy thin, yet chewy crust I love so well. Mama mia! My first two pizzas are just out of the oven and is this a wonderful thin yet supple crust. The dough was silky smooth and easy to roll -- a wonderful experience all the way around. I like it so well, I signed up for auto-ship of this wonderful flour.

I had reservations when the photo showed only the flour and not the package, but the price was too good to pass up. It turned out to be Molino di Borgo San Dalmazzo "Napoli" style 00 flour, which has been excellent in my hands for making pasta. It stores well, works well and tastes great. I bought it just to make pasta but now I'm looking forward to trying it in pizza dough. My only wish was that the Italian packaging had US nutritional content information. I will definitely come back for more of this.
