Baker's percents and weighing ingredients come in most handy when it is necessary or desirable to make many different dough types. Also using Baker's percents are useful in scaling recipes up or down for different dough batch sizes and different numbers of dough balls and pizza sizes and crust thicknesses.
You can weigh small amounts of ingredients like yeast, salt, sugar, oil, etc. For those ingredients, you can also use the volume measurements for the above mentioned measurement. The flour and water are more important to get the right amount of ingredients for what level of hydration you might want to use in a pizza dough.

I will post more about using Baker's percents in the future. These posts are just to try and help to understand how Baker's percents are used.
There are so many variables that go into making a PIZZA. The hydration of the dough, flour, yeast and many more.. Amounts of any kind of yeast in a pizza can make a big difference. Most recipes posted on the web, use too much yeast in their recipes. What I have found out so far, is either bulk fermenting the dough or cold fermenting the dough will give a better flavor in the crust. I am still experimenting to find different flavors in the crust of pies. In my opinion pizza is all about the best flavor you can achieve in a crust. I still am on the journey about flavors in the crust. Even differences in temperatures in you home or times of the year can influence how much yeast to use. If you want a pizza to develop flavors in the crust, there are many ways to go about achieving this.
