Can I mix superfine 'doppio zero' (00) and general household flour to make fresh pasta?

Hi Matt - I need 500g of doppio zero flour to make fresh pasta, but I only have 400g.

Can I add normal household flour to make up the extra 100g?

Answer: Hi Sam.

The truth is, I'm not sure whether this will make a difference of not. But... if these flours are all you have, then I reckon just try it. The dough might behave a little differently, but I suspect it should work ok - and 'ok' still means much tastier than the packet stuff!
