##### Conversion of grams to cups? Tsp?
« on: September 17, 2015, 10:41:16 AM »
Can someone convert this recipe for me?

My calculation( don't know if it's right)

Water- 1 litre.                       4 cups
Flour-1700 grams.                 5 cups
Fresh yeast- 3/5 gram.          ?
Salt-50 grams.                      1/3 cup

I ordered a scale but not here yet.

Thanks  Marsha

Look here:

http://foodsim.toastguard.com

This will allow you to convert almost anything back and forth between weight and volume.
No, you did not have it right.  For example, your flour estimate is way off.  Flour is roughly 125 grams per cup.  You need to almost triple the flour measurement.  Try the website.

That is a lot of dough - like 6 pounds.

BTW, your recipe looks like a pretty standard one for Neapolitan pizza.  If that is your plan, you will need a very hot oven (like over 800 degrees).

1L water = 4.23 cups.

The rest of the ingredients can't be converted because they are compressible.

Are you really planning on using fresh yeast?  Or Active Day or Instant?
What kind of flour are you using?
What kind of salt (Morton kosher, diamond crystal kosher, table salt?)

The amount of yeast depends on how long you plan on fermenting the dough.  You should go at least 6 or 8 hours, but overnight is better.

Is there a place where you are getting this recipe so we see the rest of your plan (the workflow, etc.)?
