##### Dough weight
« on: May 30, 2022, 01:34:56 PM »
I want to make a not too thin, not too thick pizza dough.  Kind of like a dominos, papa johns or just any pizzeria pizza. I  just bought a 14” pizza screen.  How many grams should each dough ball weigh to get that 14” crust?  I’m using the pizza calculator but it wants me to input a dough weight but I have no idea what a 14” pizza dough should weigh.

catheide,

When I was playing around with clones of the Papa John's basic pizza, I tried using dough ball weights of 20, 21 and 22 ounces but finally settled on 20 ounces, or 567 grams. That was for a 14" pizza. An example of the recipe can be seen at Reply 585 at:

You can see typical photos of the clone pizzas at the front of the above cited thread.

Sounds about right. We use 22oz here at work for 16" and I would say we might be a HAIR thinner than a Papa John's pizza.
