adding semolina

Greetings


What difference does using semolina flour in the dough makes? does it add more gluten? does it improve the rise and/or the taste? And how much semolina in average is used in the dough, for example when making bread loafs or pizza crust?

Having just purchased a sack of semolina flour myself, I was also interested in how to use it. I found the following article on the San Francisco Baking Institute site.

It discusses "technical changes in formulation" when using semolina flour.
