Pizza Peel Wood vs Metal? You asked. What’s the difference?

Which one should I get?

So many questions.

But don’t worry; we got you covered.

If you’re a pizza baker (or aspiring to be one), this article will help you understand the purpose of a pizza peel, and what features to look for so you can select the best pizza peel for your needs.

Let’s get started!

Key Takeaways

Wood vs. Metal Pizza Peel

Material Matters: While wood pizza peels are traditionally used and are excellent for launching pizzas into the oven, metal, specifically aluminum, perforated pizza peels offer an unmatched combination of durability, ease of maintenance, and functionality, leading to a superior pizza baking experience.

Perforation Advantage: A perforated pizza peel, typically made of metal, allows excess flour to fall through the holes, preventing it from burning on the pizza stone and affecting the taste of your pizza. This feature gives it an edge over traditional wood peels.

Heat Tolerance: Unlike wood peels that can potentially burn or warp under high temperatures, metal pizza peels, especially the perforated ones, demonstrate high heat resistance, making them a safer and more reliable option for frequent or commercial use.

Ease of Use and Cleaning: Metal-perforated pizza peels are generally thinner and lighter, allowing for more precise handling when transferring pizzas. They’re also easier to clean than wood peels, a significant advantage for regular pizza makers.

Before we dive in, let’s cover a few basics about these tools of the trade.

What Is A Pizza Peel?

A pizza peel is a shovel-like tool used by bakers to slide loaves of bread, pizzas, and other baked goods into and out of an oven. It is usually made of wood, metal, or composite material and has a flat carrying surface (like a shovel’s blade) for holding the baked good and a handle extending from one side of that surface.

Traditionally, the term “peel” is derived from the French word “pelle,” which describes a wide range of long-handled implements. In the world of baking and pizza making, the peel’s primary purpose is to keep the baker’s hands out of the hottest part of the oven or prevent them from getting burned by touching the food directly.

Pizza peels come in various sizes and shapes, and there are two primary types:

A “paddle” or “shovel” peel which has a broad flat surface and is used primarily for inserting pizzas into the oven, and

A “turning” peel is smaller, lighter, and more nimble and is used primarily for rotating and removing pizzas while they’re in the oven.

Perforated pizza peels are a variant of these tools, where the flat surface has a series of holes or perforations. This design allows excess flour to fall off the pizza dough before it’s put into the oven, preventing the flour from burning and impacting the pizza’s flavor.

Picture the ovens at your local pizza joint: do you see the pizza bakers pulling pies in and out of the oven using long tools that appear to be giant spatulas?

Those are pizza peels!

Peels with long handles look a bit like a snow shovel that got run over in the driveway!

For home cooks using a pizza stone or pizza steel, a pizza peel is a valuable accessory that will help you make excellent homemade pies in your oven.

Pro Tip

Make sure that no matter which pizza peel you are using, that is completely dry. Flour the surface and your pizza will never stick.

What Is A Pizza Peel Used For?

A pizza peel is an essential tool in baking, particularly for making pizzas. It has several uses:
Transferring Pizzas: The primary use of a pizza peel is to transfer pizzas in and out of a hot oven.

The flat surface of the peel allows you to slide it under the pizza and lift it out without risking burns.

  1. Launching Dough: Pizza peels are also used to slide raw, shaped pizza dough onto a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven. This can be especially useful when making thin-crust pizzas, which can be difficult to handle.
  2. Turning and Rotating: Pizzas may not cook evenly in the oven if left in one position. A pizza peel, especially a smaller, turning peel, rotates the pizza, ensuring it cooks evenly.
  3. Serving: A peel can also be used as a serving platter. It’s a convenient way to slice and serve pizza right out of the oven, adding an authentic pizzeria feel to your meal.
  4. Cooling Baked Goods: Besides pizza, peels are also handy for cooling other baked goods like bread, pastries, or pies, allowing air to circulate around the bottom and prevent fogginess.


Remember, before using a pizza peel, it’s usually dusted with flour or cornmeal to prevent the dough from sticking to its surface.

It has been known as a tool for bakers since at least the 13th century.  

Medieval Peel

The term peel has been used in the standard description of a baker’s job in the 1806 edition of the Book of Trades.

Pizza Peel in Oven

Peels have become must-have tools in commercial pizza ovens and brick or stone ovens because the baking area is large, and the pizzas usually get baked directly on the bottom surface of the oven like medieval free-form loaves of bread.

What should I look for when choosing a pizza peel?

Choosing the right pizza peel depends on your specific needs, but here are some key aspects to consider:

  1. Material: Pizza peels are usually made of wood, metal, or composite materials. Wood peels are traditional and provide a good surface for launching dough into the oven, but they require more maintenance and can be bulkier. Metal peels, typically aluminum or stainless steel, are thinner, more durable, and easier to clean. Composite peels offer a middle-ground, balancing ease of use with durability.
  2. Size: Consider the size of your oven and the pizzas you plan to make. The peel should be large enough to hold your pizza but small enough to maneuver in your oven. Also, consider the size of the handle. It should be long enough to keep your hands safe from the heat but short enough that you can control it easily.
  3. Handle Design: Look for a peel with a sturdy handle that offers a secure grip. Some peels have foldable handles for easy storage, which could be a deciding factor if you have limited storage space.
  4. Shape: The shape of the peel’s blade (the flat part that holds the pizza) can impact how easy it is to slide under a pizza. Some people find rounded corners easier to use, while others prefer the precision of square corners.
  5. Thickness: Metal peels are typically thinner than wooden ones, making it easier to get under the pizza. However, if they are too thin, they can bend under the weight of a heavy pizza.
  6. Perforation: Some metal peels are perforated with small holes. These allow excess flour to fall away from the pizza as you place it in the oven, preventing the flour from burning on the pizza stone and affecting the taste.
  7. Ease of Cleaning: Consider how easy the peel is to clean. Metal and composite peels can often be washed in the dishwasher, while wood peels must be hand-washed and dried promptly to prevent warping or cracking.

Remember, the best pizza peel for you will largely depend on your personal preferences, how frequently you make pizza and the type of oven you use.

There are several styles of peels on the market; depending on your use and budget, you may choose one or two designs!

Pizza Peel Components

Wood vs Metal Pizza Peel

A pizza peel has two main parts: a paddle and a handle.

The paddle area is the surface upon which the pizza sits during transfer to and from the oven, whereas the handle is the part you hold it with. Let’s consider some factors when choosing the best pizza peel.

Paddle Material

Wood vs Metal Pizza Peel

Acacia Wood Peel
Heritage Acacia Wood Pizza Peel

Also known as a blade, the paddle is usually made of wood or metal; composite materials are also available. The material of the paddle generally classifies peels.

Wood

The original baking peels were made of all wood. Today, home cooks have several good choices of the type of wood for their pizza peel.

The best woods are relatively low density, so the utensil does not weigh too much; popular choices include basswood, acacia, and bamboo.

Peels made of wood have the benefit of being sturdy and relatively inexpensive.

metal pizza peel
Checkered Chef Pizza Paddle

Metal

Metal is another popular choice for the paddle end of the peel. Metal paddles are sometimes called ‘blades’ because they are quite thin.

Aluminum and stainless steel are the most common and preferred for durability, strength, and ease of care. The metal peel’s thinness benefits getting the pizza out of the oven.

Composite

Composite pizza peel
Epicurean Pizza Peel

Peels made of pressed paper and similar composite materials are also available but are not well-liked among experienced pizza bakers.

We will, therefore, only consider wood and metal peels from this point.

Paddle size

Yes, Size Matters! The paddle surface’s width or area determines the largest size pizza you can bake, so you’ll need something big enough to make the pies you want but not so big that it doesn’t fit into your oven!

pizza paddle sizes
American MeltalCraft Pizza Paddles

Most peels have a paddle in the 14″ range, allowing you to make a 13-14″ diameter pizza, which is plenty big for most of us. You could go bigger with a large oven (and strong arms).

Peels under 12″ will limit the size of your pies.

Paddle shape

Most paddles are squared off at the end even though pizza tends to be round; this medieval design has endured for centuries for its utility in reaching the farthest corners of the oven and tucking under a baked item.

A gently curved end is also a good choice.

Some commercial operations and wood-fired outdoor pizza oven owners use a small round peel to turn things inside the oven; this specialized utensil is unnecessary for home kitchens.

Pizza peel shapes
Pizza Peel Shapes

The shape of the blade edge is critical. Because wood peels have a paddle thickness of about one-half inch where they support the pizza, good wood will be beveled so that the edge is thin, 1/8th inch or less; this is essential for getting your cooked pizza out of the oven.

Metal peels are thin throughout the paddle area, making slipping the blade under the pie easy.

Pizza Peel Handle Material and Design

Material – Wood vs Metal Pizza Peel

Ironwood Pizza Peel

Wood peels are generally carved from a single piece of wood, so the handle and the paddle are the same.

Metal pizza peel with wood handle
Premium Aluminum Pizza Peel With Detachable Beech Handle

The handle may be made of wood or metal or a high-temperature-resistant plastic or silicone for metal peels.

In any case, make sure the peel is rated to 550°F – you don’t want plastic melting onto your food or oven door!

Some peels feature foldable or extendable handles to make storage easier; however, check product reviews to ensure the handle won’t collapse while carrying a topping-laden pizza to the oven.

Pizza Peel Handle’s Length

The handle’s length is essential – a handle that is too short will make your hand feel extremely uncomfortable from the oven’s heat, whereas too long of a handle can be difficult to manipulate and store in a small kitchen.

We recommend a minimum handle length of 7″ up to 12″ for a home kitchen peel– this will allow you to reach the back of your oven without singeing the little hairs on your fingers!

Pizza Peel Overall Weight

All these variations in material, handle length, and paddle size impact the peel’s weight. A well-made peel will deliver the desired features with a weight of fewer than two pounds.

Heavier woods like teak may add a bit of weight, but if you like the look of teak and want to hang the peel on your wall, it may be worth the extra few ounces.

Once the peel is loaded with a big uncooked pizza, it weighs upwards of five pounds, so your ability to carry and manipulate it will be important.

We recommend buying a pizza peel for under three pounds, preferably less than two. Unless, of course, you need bicep conditioning!

Price

Wooden peels are less expensive, whereas metal peels, with their multi-piece construction, tend to cost a bit more.

However, neither is terribly expensive, so dedicated pizza makers may choose to have one of each in their kitchens.

How to Use Pizza Peel

Although the general method for using all pizza peels is the same, there are some subtle differences in technique.

How to Use a Wood Pizza Peel Wood vs Metal

So to get started, you will just need to get a wood peel. Make sure is completely dry.

Acacia Wood Peel
Heritage Acacia Wood Pizza Peel


Total Time Needed: 5 minutes
Total Average Cost: $ 20 USD

Required Tools:

– A Wood Pizza Peel

Ingredients Needed?

– Flour
– Cornmeal

Steps to using a wood pizza peel

Step 1: Flour the Surface of the Pizza Peel


Spread a couple of teaspoons of flour and cornmeal on the pizza peel and spread it around to cover the area where you will place the dough.

Flour the wood peel


Step 2: Stretch the Dough


Place your lightly floured, rolled, or stretched-out dough on the peel and shake it horizontally.

If it does not move freely, add a bit more cornmeal under the sticky spots. Avoiding holes in the dough is important, as the sauce will drip below and cause the pie to stick to the peel.

Stretch the dough



Step 3: Add the Sauce to the Dough


Add your sauce and toppings; work quickly so as not to give the dough too much time on the peel, which increases the risk of sticking.

Sauce the dough



Step 4: Shake and Transfer the Pizza to the Oven


Pick up the peel and gently shake it horizontally again so the assembled pizza moves back and forth a bit.

Continuing the shaking motion, open the oven and shimmy the dough onto the preheated pizza surface.

Slide pizza into oven



Step 5: Remove the Pizza from the Oven


To remove the pizza, place the peel at the edge of the cooked pizza at a downward angle so that the beveled edge contacts the stone’s surface.

Give a strong shove to get the peel underneath the crust.

This step is a bit tricky; sometimes, the pizza will just move to the back of the oven, so you can use the back wall to hold the pizza while you slip the peel underneath.

Alternatively, use a large pair of tongs to grasp the crust and pull it onto the peel.

Step 6: Serve the Pizza


Return the peel to the counter and slide the pizza onto a cutting board or serving platter.

Best practices to use a Pizza peel

Here are some tips to improve the way you use a pizza peel.  These are not necessarily what is shown in the photos, but we decided to leave them as they are so you can get a better view of the best practices.

  • Make sure your peel is completely dry
  • Remove the top rack of the oven so you have more space to maneuver your peel.
  • Is best practice to use either a pizza stone or pizza steel as the cooking surface; this will give you a better crust.
  • Note the peel has to be at an angle with placing the pizza on the baking surface.
  • Pull out the rack when the pizza is cooked; this will dissipate the heat and give you more space to work with. However, you must be careful the pizza won’t slide off the cooking surface. To avoid sliding off, hold the pizza with tongs.

Step 6: Serve the Pizza

Regardless of your chosen peel, you will want to practice the techniques before hosting a pizza party!

Caring for your pizza peel Wood vs Metal

How to Take Care of a Wood Pizza Peel

Wooden pizza peels should not be soaked in water or placed in the dishwasher. If you have managed to avoid getting food on the paddle, simply brush off the cornmeal.

If you get sauce or cheese stuck on it (often at the front edge), run it under a light stream of water and use a spatula, bench scraper, or plastic scrub brush to remove the food.

How to Take Care of a Metal Pizza Peel

Metal peels are generally easier to care for; like an aluminum or steel sheet pan, they can be washed in warm soapy water, and some are dishwasher safe.

Check the manufacturer’s use and care information for the specific model you are considering.

How to Choose a Pizza Peel

Let’s discuss the pros and cons of pizza peel wood vs metal pizza peel.

Pizza Peel Wood vs Metal Pros and Cons

Here’s a comparison table outlining the pros and cons of wood versus metal pizza peels:

Wood Pizza PeelMetal Pizza Peel
Pros– Natural, traditional look
– Absorbs excess moisture from the dough
– Dough is less likely to stick
– Ideal for launching pizza into the oven
– Durable and long-lasting
– Easy to clean (some are dishwasher-safe)
– Thinner edge for easy sliding undercooked pizza
– Heat-resistant; won’t warp or burn
Cons– Requires more maintenance (hand wash and dry)
– Bulkier and may be harder to store
– Can warp or crack over time
– Thicker edge can make it harder to retrieve pizza
– Can be too hot to touch when removed from the oven
– Dough may stick if not adequately floured
– May not be as aesthetically pleasing as wood

Wood peels make it easy to get a pizza into the oven but not so easy to get it out.

The unpolished “fuzzy” surface of a wood peel absorbs some moisture and reduces the amount of contact between the uncooked dough and the paddle.

This feature reduces the risk of the dough sticking to the peel and causing your pizza to deform or spill, which is clearly something you want to avoid!

Once the pizza is cooked, getting it back onto a wooden peel and out of the oven can be a challenge.

Due to the thickness of the wood, it is not easy to slip the paddle under the pizza; this can cause a bit of stress while you are crouched in front of an open 550°F oven, and your pizza is moving farther back into the intense heat!

Although there is some risk of a wooden peel catching fire when using it in a wood-fired oven, this is not a concern for home ranges.

Metal Pizza Peels

Due to the slick, non-absorbent surface of the paddle, metal peels require lots of flour while handling the uncooked pizza to avoid sticking.

When the flour under the pizza dough hits the pizza stone, it can burn and create an unpleasant flavor on the crust – which is a real bummer since you have invested in making better crusts!

Some bakers use semolina flour for this purpose because it burns at a higher temperature.

Other folks use parchment paper and keep the pizza on it the whole time; however, there is a risk of the paper catching on fire, which may produce a strange flavor – or cause great alarm to those around you.

Master Your Pizza Game with Two (2) Pizza Peels

So now you may be thinking, “I still don’t know which is the best pizza peel for me.”

There is no single answer for everyone and every task. For this reason, many pizza chefs have two pizza peels – a wooden one for getting the pizza into the oven and a metal one for getting it out.

This is a great solution if you have the budget to buy both and the room to store them.

However, most of us aren’t going to make pizza every day and may wish to use that space and money for things besides pizza peels!

Don’t Want to Buy Two Different Pizza Peels? Here is the Solution

A new alternative

Perforated Pizza Peel vs Solid

Perforated Pizza Peel
Perforated Pizza Peel

Perforated Pizza Peel

A perforated pizza peel may be your best design if you prefer to buy only one peel. This newer style has perforations, or small holes, throughout the paddle.

The perforated design reduces the surface area in contact with the dough and allows air to reach the underside, thus reducing the amount of flour needed.

Such a hybrid pizza peel combines the thin blade of a metal peel with the lower stickiness of a wood peel; a result is a tool that is good at both getting the pizza into and out of the oven.

Why Use Perforated Pizza Peel

An additional benefit of the perforations is that by shaking the peel’s uncooked pizza, some of the excess flour under the dough can be removed via the holes before placement on the baking stone.

The method for using a perforated pizza peel is mostly the same as that for a metal peel, do a little more (but gentle) shaking of the raw pizza on the peel to allow the extra flour to escape.

You must still work quickly and keep the peel moving to avoid dough dripping through the holes. To minimize this problem, choose a perforated pizza peel with smaller holes.
