Perforate Your Pizza Peel To Avoid Sticking, Burning

We've featured DIY pizza ovens in more styles than we can count, but it isn't the only factor involved in high quality pizza. DIY website Instructables shows us how to perforate a pizza peel for easy extraction and minimum burning.

There aren't a lot of commercial perforated pizza peels out there, and a quick Google search reveals results that cost up to $US50 more than regular peels. They present numerous advantages over the traditional ones, though, namely reducing friction when taking your pizza in and out of the oven, so it doesn't stick. Furthermore, you're also not going to get as much flour under the dough when sliding it in — which can burn and cause a bitter taste (and we can't have that).

All you need to make your own is a regular aluminium pizza peel, which can cost as low as 10 or 15 dollars, and a drill or drill press. You'll want some cardboard and assorted office supplies too for creating a template beforehand, which the guide goes into detail on doing. Hit the link to check it out.
