Best Pizza Peels

Preparing pizza at home is a fun activity, and a pizza peel can make the process easier. This tool transports pizza from the worktop to the oven and then helps you remove the pizza when it’s done. When buying a pizza peel, consider what size and shape will fit your oven, the length of the handle, and the type of material. Wooden pizza peels are more traditional, but they can be heavy, less durable, and may require specific care. A steel peel is stronger and more durable than a wooden peel, but you’ll need to be sure it’s not combined with other metals that may rust over time. Lastly, aluminum peels are exceptionally light and easy to handle, but be sure they’re food safe. If you’re planning to use the pizza peel with an indoor oven, look for a shorter handle for more control. Here’s our review of three different pizza peels, all of which are great options.

None

Oblong Wooden Pizza Peel. With its long handle, this wooden pizza peel makes it easy to stay back from your oven when sliding pizza in or out. 

What We Liked

This long-handled pizza peel is made from half-inch rubber wood. As a result, the surface is soft but may dent easily. The edges are smooth, and there is a hole in the handle for secure storage when not in use. The handle is about 22 inches long, and the carrying surface is about 14 inches. The peel is approximately one half-inch thick for durability. The front edge of the peel is tapered to make it easier to scoop up the pizza. The peel should be hand washed, but consider oiling it before first use. We liked that this wooden peel has a long handle that provides better maneuverability. Get Yours Today.
