how much sauce/cheese
« on: June 26, 2013, 07:42:37 PM »
What would be an ideal amount of cheese and sauce on say a 15 inch pie in ounces or grams?
Thanks
Shawn

Ideal for me or for you?  I use 6-8 ounces per pizza for cheese and  6-8 tsp of sauce.

Shawn,

I referenced the Burke's pizza guide for cheese and sauce ratio at Reply 4 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,14822.msg147190.html#msg147190

As much or as little as you like!  I mean that sincerly.  there are lots of variations in what people call NYC pies.  Develop a pie that you like and let your taste buds determine that through experimenting with no regard for "what is the right amount".  Others may like it or not but as long as you do it will always be a great pie.  Walter
