A peel is a long-handled tool, typically made of wood or metal, used to place and remove pizzas in and out of a pizza oven. It is used to slide the pizza onto the hot baking surface and retrieve it once it is cooked.


  • “After shaping the pizza dough, gently transfer it onto a floured peel before placing it in the hot pizza oven.”
  • “Using a long-handled peel, carefully remove the cooked pizza from the oven without burning yourself.”
