Why Choose Wood Pizza Peels
Pizza peels are necessary for any pizzeria or restaurant consistently serving pizza: the efficiency and durability of these tools are unmatched by other pizza-making equipment. But when choosing between metal and wood, things can get tricky.
Though metal pizza peels seem like the ideal choice, they act as conduits for heat and can be dangerous to handle after long periods of use with hot ovens—and damage pizza crust due to condensation forming.
The benefits of wood pizza peels include:
Better Insulator: dough sticks less to wood peels because they are less prone to condensation and retain heat better for sliding raw dough on and off.
Handy Cutting Board: when sliding fresh pizza from the oven to the counter, a wood peel can act as the cutting board, shortening the transfer process.
