Sherry put in a request for a pizza peel. She makes our bread and tried several different ways to slide it off the rising surface onto the hot pizza stone in the oven. Even with the rising surface covered with a generous layer of corn meal, the dough still managed to stick to every surface she tried. The she thought about a pizza peel. First she pulled out her wood cutting board, covered the surface with corn meal, and placed the bread dough in the center to rise. A couple of hours later, it slid just perfectly onto the hot pizza stone.
Eureka! After a bit of web surfing, she sent a link to Sam and said, "I want one of these...
...with a tapered end."
Ta-da! Sister-in-law, Carol, asked where hers was. ;o)
