Pizza peels are an essential tool for cooking pizzas because they allow for the safe and efficient transfer of pizzas into and out of the oven. These flat, paddle-like instruments are typically made of wood or metal and feature long handles that keep the user's hands a safe distance from the hot oven.

The peel's flat surface enables the pizza to be easily slid onto and off of the oven's baking stone or steel, ensuring that the crust stays intact and the toppings do not shift during the transfer. Without a pizza peel, it would be difficult to safely and effectively cook pizzas, resulting in potentially ruined pizzas.
