ALUMINUM PIZZA PEEL vs WOOD PIZZA PEEL

ALUMINUM PIZZA PEEL vs WOOD PIZZA PEEL
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We get asked this question a lot, which one should I get?! And the answer is BOTH! They each serve their own purpose.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wood pizza peels are the best for creating your pizza on and sliding it into the oven with. The dough sticks less to wood than to aluminum. The rougher surface allows more airflow under the pizza dough. Without this airflow, the dough will work as a plunger, creating a vacuum between the dough and the pizza peel.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The downside of a wood pizza peel, which is why it doesn't work the best for removing the pizza from the oven, is it's thickness. The thickness makes it hard to get under the pizza to slide it out.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Aluminum pizza peels are fantastic for turning and removing the pizza from the oven. The thin surface allows the pizza peel to easily slide under the pizza.

There are a couple tricks we use if we only have a wood peel or only an aluminum peel, let us know if you'd like to hear them!
