Dough ball sizes for pizza question

Ok pizza experts: I've had a lot of great success with pizza on the egg, but am looking for some advice to improve my consistency. I've been just dividing the dough into roughly equal size balls, but then seem to be stretching them to thin for a decent size pie. For those of you who weigh you dough, what size do you use for different size pizzas?

    It is true, you really have to weigh each ingredient in baking to be accurate!  Thats why i bought a scale --- but i never used it yet!! :((   And every time i make my dough recipe, i look at the dough ball and think it isn't enough.  But i follow the directions and it say's it will ake two pies and it has never failed me.  This is a thin crust recipe and it is so good i think it would taste good without a topping on it!! >:D<

    About 260 grams for a 13-inch pie.

    I know what you mean, often we bake one blank and use it for the bread part of bruschetta and it is always a hit as an appetizer.

    I usually go about 310g, but mine may be a little thicker or pulling back when thrown onto the stone :)

    I suggest checking out the dough calculators at - will give you the dough ball weight based on desired thickness and diameter.
