##### How much dough for different pizza sizes?
« on: November 24, 2021, 09:32:32 AM »
I was wondering if there was a formula or a good benchmark for how much dough to use for different pizza sizes?

A quick look around, I can find recommended amounts of dough for typical pizza sizes, but I'm also interested in how much dough would be recommended for smaller pizza sizes like 5 inch pizzas and such. I could probably eyeball it, but if there was already some information on this then that would be great.

thanks,

It really depends on how thin you want your pizzas to be. There is no one perfect dough ball weight; it's a matter of preference. Here is a link to a pizza dough thickness worksheet to help determine for yourself what weight you want, depending on the size and desired thickness. https://mypizzamaster.com/worksheets/dtf20180915.pdf

Thank you for the link, I should be able to figure out what I need from here.

Here's another useful page. It lets you punch in the desired parameters, and it spits out the required quantities for measuring. https://pizza-dough-calculator.herokuapp.com/calculator
