    1 ball of pizza dough

    Shalom. I live on my own but enjoy making good food for my friends. We don't have balls of dough where I live, or many other American standard weights and measures (e.g. 2 cans of xyz, or 1 package of abc) Please could you weigh one for your international readers and include the ounces or grammes in your recipes? I really want to bake this in memory of my late Bobba. I would brush the pastry with butter to make it richer. Many thanks. Aryeh. PS. Please could you list the names of your Chefs in alphabetical order for ease of searching. Thank you.

    This recipe looks REALLY YUMMY! Can the pecans be skipped (whether for those who may be allergic to nuts or who just don’t like nuts)?

    Standard pizza dough comes in a bag in the freezer. It's pretty much a set size.

    I want to make my own dough, so wondering how much or is there a recipe that equals the amounts I would need. Would this dough recipe do the trick? https://www.kosher.com/recipe/cinnamon-chocolate-buns-4442

    You would need the equivalent of the amount of dough to fit a 18 inch pizza pie.
