This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Like many on here we make our own pizzas though we dont have one of the pizza ovens that appear on here frequently

Been looking at this flour on Amazon 5 packs for £8.39 and on searching found its in Aldi for a limited time. Went in today and they have it on offer for 99p down from £1.75. Reviews on Amazon and elsewere are excellent, supposed to make the best pizza dough.

1.5kg bags.

You cant beat a home made pizza.

Aldi also had other Matthews Flour for the same price.

Never tried it but got 4 bags going back after your review
Or you could get Molino Grassi Italian flour from Amazon delivered to your door for £10.53 for 10 ×1kg bags,129 reviews of which are 94% 5 stars.
Since I'm Italian I can say this is the equivalent of bread flour here.

Who cares when you have an extra 5kg of flour not everyone wants it delivered and there are Aldi in nearly every town plus this gets same reviews and at 99p it’s worth a try.

if you think it’s a good deal we will always welcome a first deal from a newbie why not give it a try deals are always welcome.

I always use this flour too, but agreed, they rarely ever stock it!

Why? It's a way of saying no need to go out of your way to buy this when regular bread flour does the same job . Since it costs more than regular supermarket bread flour when not on offer.

I made pizza and focaccia many times with bread flour and haven't noticed differences with making it in Italy with the flour there. It's a matter of technique mostly. Your bread flour and manitoba (which is how this here is called in Italy) are both strong flours suitable for bread etc.

From my research into making Neapolitan pizza there’s a lot of Italians who’d disagree with you!

I’m not saying you can’t make good pizza with bread flour but pretty much every recipe I’ve seen says to use ‘00’ for the best pizza dough, it’s more finely milled.
Italian 00 flour is a very fine flour and contains less gluten than 0 flour.
It is ideal for making cakes, crostata (google for recipe).
0 flour contains more gluten. It is better for pizza and some breads.
Manitoba flour (a "very strong" flour) has even more gluten, and is used for breads, panettone, etc.
Having said that, my Aldi does not have any 00 flour.
They rarely have it. :-(
ATM they have stacks of Spelt (great for pizza too, but with less gluten than normal wheat) and French flour, which I am not familiar with.

according to Facebook its in all store for a few weeks ours had loads of all types left, but could be they are clearing stock as they have reduced it as well.

Ok, so type 00 is the flour used for cakes, pasta etc. It's not rich in gluten, which is what makes the dough elastic. Type 0 is the one I was talking about that's suitable for breads and pizza. That's not what I have grown up using for pizza.
Also, all the Italian websites I checked over the years about bread-making (pizza is a bread after all) always say to use the type 0 and not the 00 for it. The 00 is very fine yes and it's good for cakes.

Don't buy this unless you have a pizza oven which reaches high temperatures over 450C+. The dough won't brown as good in a standard oven that only reaches 250/300C, your much better off using a good quality bread flour for pizza in a standard kitchen.
Leaving aside the suitability of this for pizza (I get very good results in a domestic oven with pizza stone), this isn't national, at least not currently in Tottenham Aldi where it's still full price. Stocked up on a bag of 00 and two of the French T55.

We had it yesterday cooked in a normal oven very light tasty dough and cooked normal colour and we all said we preferred it over normal dough. Would definitely buy it again even at Amazon price.
