After some pizza making failures I finally got around to making the proper tool to solve my pizza problems. I had some old thin cherry that would work perfectly! (at least I was told it was cherry, I think it could be a close relative) The striping in one of them is just sapwood, not another species, there is also a nice secondary bevel on that one for a sharper, stronger edge.

I would highly recommend making some of these yourself, they are a BLAST to make. These only took me a day and a half start to finish, and I really got into the second (nicer) one. Pizza Peels (aka Pizza shovel/spatula) have a really unique scale to them that makes them a lot of fun.

I would recommend using quartersawn lumber to help reduce warping and increase strength. These are finished with Watco Butcher Block oil (has wax in it) Happy Making!
