perhaps a stupid question but.....

what would happen if you used sugar instead of flour on the peel, so the dough won't stick?

Not a pizza pro, but assuming you mean granulated sugar and just going by how sugar reacts to heat, whatever ends up in there with the pizza from the peel will probably caramelize on the stone or pan under the crust. Would probably go beyond that and burn actually.

Nothing good.......it would burn instantly. Salt would make more sense if you were to stay along that thinking. I assume for the ball bearing effect is why you're asking??

Semolina is my favorite, having tried flour, rice flour, and in my first pies, corn meal...but that would always burn and not smell great
