How To Use A Metal Pizza Peel

by Blaise Wynn

If you've read through my guide about working with a wooden pizza peel, you understand how effortless that is to do. You may not know this, but making use of a metal (usually aluminum) pizza peel is even simpler. It's so easy you will never look back on your previous days of wooden peels.

The reason I say this is because you get to skip the step where you add flour or cornmeal to the pizza peel. Your dough will not stick to the aluminum pizza peel. It just won't happen with the metal.

You can get beneath the pizza a lot easier with a metal pizza peel so you'll be able to build your pizza on your kitchen counter. Once the pizza is made all you should do when making use of a metal pizza peel is to lift up one end of your pizza and merely push the peel beneath the dough.

Then fix your pizza a little bit to be sure it is always the optimal shape you would like. I'm assuming you'll want a nice perfectly round shape like all the experts in Italy, NY and all around the world.

And Finally, you move your pizza off from the metal pizza peel and directly into the oven. It will then cook really nicely at a really hot temperature. The crust will be thin in the middle and nice and puffy around the edges.

That's all there is to it. Working With a wooden pizza peel is easy, but having an aluminum peel is even easier.

Now your pizza is baking and you're just a couple of minutes away from heaven.

I hope this article helped you on your pizza making journey. Now all you need is a little practice, which is the fun part and you'll be an expert in no time.
