## Dough math

I have used the following recipe for pizza/strombolis/calzones etc...

4 cups bread flour, 1 3/4 cups water, 2 1/4 tsp yeast, 1 1/2 tsp salt and 2 tbl olive oil.

So I tried to convert those measurements into grams as best as I could and come up with a formula. Is this correct?

4 cups (520 grams), 1 3/4 cups water (432 grams), 2 1/4 tsp yeast (10 grams), salt (9 grams) So.....

Bread flour 100%, water 83%, yeast 2% and salt 1.7%

The math part (and making bread/pizza from scratch as a matter of fact) is all new to me and I am trying to grasp the concept. Would you suggest any changes based on the above information? Thanks in advance!
