Dough Calculator

Lehmann Pizza Dough Calculating Tool

This tool was developed by Mike (aka Boy Hits Car) and can be used to determine the ingredients and quantities needed to make any size and number of dough balls, up to 999, using the standard Lehmann dough formulation. There are two options for using the tool: the Thickness Factor option and the Dough Weight option. To use the Thickness Factor option, the user enters a thickness factor, a set of workable baker’s percents, the desired pizza size, and the desired number of pizzas. The user of this option can also select the shape of the pizza—either round or rectangular. To use the Dough Weight option, the user enters the known weight of a dough ball (in either grams or ounces), a set of workable baker’s percents, and the desired number of dough balls. With either option, the tool provides the ingredients and quantities corresponding to the data inputted into the tool. The tool also includes a “bowl residue” feature that allows users to compensate for minor dough losses that can occur during the dough preparation process.

Although this tool was specifically developed for the Lehmann dough formulation, it can also be used for any dough formulation using the same ingredients as the Lehmann formulation and for which there are known thickness factors, baker's percents and, in the case of the Dough Weight option, dough ball weights.
