Are there different type of peels for rotating?
« on: February 19, 2013, 04:24:24 PM »
I read somewhere that some people use a different kind of peel to rotate and remove then the peel they use to launch the pizza onto the stone.  Is that right? Is there a name for rotator peels?

Yes, they are two different peels. A turning peel typically has a 7-9" diameter round head. It gives you much greater dexterity with the pie but is way too small to launch a pie.  On the other hand, the peel used for launching which can be awkward and cumbersome for turning. I don't know if there is a specific name. Lots of folks call them turning peels. GI Metal calls them "small peels."
Pizza is not bread.
