Minimum pitch for shingles

I live near Albany NY. I have to replace the roof on my heated back porch and was wondering what the minimum pitch for shingles is. The pitch is only 2" per foot. It had shigles on it before. Thanks Tim

Just look at the paper on them at Home Depot or Lowes. it will tell you. But I wont go under 3 1/2". like here code wants two layers of 30lb felt then the shingles on a 3 1/2".
Id use 90lb and mop it in

Thanks Chicago111 & Ed

Ed when you say 90 lb and mop it in you mean 90lb salvage edge roofing & roof coating?
