The Trick To Getting Your Pizza Off The Peel And Into The Oven
To seamlessly slide a stubbornly sticky homemade pizza into the oven, loosen its annoyingly clingy grip on your peel by gently running an offset spatula under it.
An offset spatula has an angled blade that bends down and away from the handle before it juts out into a straight line, effortlessly moving the pizza in one seamless movement.
Available in several sizes, offset spatulas have rounded tips and blunt edges, which won't disturb the delicate texture of pizza dough or pierce through it and upset the toppings.
The angled feature is especially helpful if your pizza gets stuck onto the oven's base. It allows you to get under the stuck portion while keeping your hand safe from the heat.
