Semolina Flour

Semolina #1 Flour

Semolina flour is a type of flour that's derived from durum wheat. This flour is most often used to make pasta, but it has other, lesser-known uses.

  • Use semolina flour to make and roll out pasta dough. Semolina flour can be used in any pasta recipe, whether water- or egg-based. It produces a stretchy dough that can be cut into shapes and dried.
  • Substitute semolina flour for some or all of the all-purpose or whole-wheat flour in a bread recipe. This substitution will yield a baked good that is tender with a crisp crust.
  • Roll out pizza crust with semolina flour to give it a crunchy exterior. For chewy crust, use semolina flour instead of all-purpose or whole-wheat flour to make the dough.
  • Make hot cereal with semolina flour. Pour some flour into a saucepan, then thin it out with milk until it is the desired consistency. Add a handful of dried fruit and a drizzle of honey. Heat the cereal over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens slightly.

Simply add the flour to the simmering dish a pinch at a time, stirring constantly, until it is thickened.
