Welcome! For that 15 oz bottle, I'd use about 3/4 teaspoon priming sugar. Each person and each type of beer may vary a bit, but that's a fair ballpark figure.

As Joe mentioned, 3/4 tsp would be a good amount to start with. Try using several different amounts in different bottles. Do a few bottles with 3/4 a few with 1 a few with 1-1/4, etc. That will help you understand how different amounts of sugar effect the carbonation levels. And you'll figure out which amount you like best. Just be sure to label which bottles got which amount of sugar.
