Good Morning my favorite AR Buzzers!!!! Silly question, but....I have a bag of whole wheat pastry flour, wondering if I can use it to make pizza crust in my bread machine? I typically use regular whole wheat flour and have had no problems. I need to get this pastry flour used up. Thanks for the input!

I thinks the answer is no due to the texture of the flour. I will double check my manual which is on the main computer but DH is working from home and as a result he is on it.

As an alternative....you could use it up in a coffee cake or muffin. I made a banana crunch coffee cake and used only WW pastry flour and it was excellent. The bananas kept it from being dry.

The pastry flour has less gluten in it - do you have any Vital Wheat Gluten to add to it?

Might not be so good! WW pastry flour typically has less than half the gluten of regular ww flour. Thus, you won't have the tough, stretchy dough you need for a good hand-tossed {grinning}pie. You can ad 1& 1/2 t. Vital wheat gluten per cup of pastry flour to approximate the regular flour. Or, do as I do and try it as it is to see if you like it better! [The difference is in the variety of wheat used. Hard wheat has the most gluten. Soft wheat varieties, much less.]
