Read an Excerpt

Pizza Turning Technique

The metal peel is used to move and turn a pizza. The tendency is to try to steer the pizza with the peel. In actuality it is a two-step process. First, place half the peel under one side of the pizza. Next, lift 2-3 inches and pull straight back and watch the pizza spin. Now let the pizza down and come underneath the middle of the pizza with the whole peel. Lift up, move, and pull back swiftly, leaving the pizza in position.
