This box contains:
Pizza Flour: Make pizza night a success every time with this pizza flour from the fourth-generation experts at Molino Pasini. It’s formulated especially for home pizza-making by a mill in the northern Lombardy region that supplies professional-grade flour to chefs and bakers across Italy. You’ll get restaurant-quality pizza with a soft, supple chew and satisfyingly crispy crust.
Organic Tomato Passata: When you’re desperate for the sweet, summery flavor of a ripe tomato but they’re just not in season, reach for this passata. Its highly prized, silky-smooth, luscious texture is an uncanny match for grated raw tomato. It’s more elegant than your typical canned tomato puree and will perk up even the darkest days of winter.
Lievito Active Dry Yeast Tin: For never-fail rises every time you bake, this dry yeast from Mulino Caputo is the answer. For nearly 100 years, Mulino Caputo has been a trusted flour source for Neapolitan pizza makers and bakers across Italy. The secret is their yeast, which is specially formulated to perform well under any conditions. For short rises or long, this dry yeast consistently delivers results. It’s gluten-free and made using only natural ingredients, making it easier on the stomach than chemically derived yeast.
Calabrian Chile Paste: The quintessential Italian pepper, Calabrian chiles are beloved around the country for the lively, flavorful heat they bring to any dish. This paste of fresh chiles crushed and preserved in olive oil is a must-have for any spice lover’s pantry.
Organic Ogliarola Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Graceful and golden, this organic Ogliarola olive oil from Bio Orto is a love letter to Gargano, a highland sub-region of Puglia where it is made. Mild and fruity, with a velvety softness and just a touch of spicy and bitter notes held in perfect harmony, it’s a mellow stunner that will make a welcome addition to your kitchen arsenal. This oil is made only using Ogliarola olives, a variety also known as Paesana, which is a Pugliese favorite. It is a bit of a chameleon and expresses the terroir of each region where it is grown, developing vastly different flavors depending on its surroundings.
