Putting flour on my peel
« on: June 27, 2009, 10:44:40 AM »
I came up with something clever last night when I was making my friday night pizza:

I tilted my pizza peel to about 45 degrees over top of the sink.  Then I took some flour in my hand and just let it slide down the peel and into the sink.  It seemed to completely coat the peel.  Then I just tossed some fine corn meal on top before tossing my dough and laying it down on the peel.  It worked great.

I have always had problems with at least one small portion of my pizza sticking to the peel but this time it didn't at all.

Just thought I'd share my random thought!   :pizza:

I've found the best method is to put a small amount on the peel hold it at an angle as you suggest, but lightly rub it into the peel. I have found this works well for me. Holding it over the sink is also a good idea.
