Baker’s percentage calculator with yeast quantity estimator
Pizza dough and bread dough contain the same basic ingredients; yeast, flour and water, with salt, oil and perhaps a little sugar in some recipes. The difference between different kinds of dough is the proportion of the ingredients you use.
In the calculator below, we explain how each one of these ingredients affects the outcome of your dough, especially the yeast which is estimated based on your preferred fermentation temperature and period.
By understanding what is happening, you will be able to alter dough recipes to suit your own taste and preference.
