Here's something to do while you wait for the oven to get hot. Take your pizza peel, a drill, and a bit and start making holes. Now, when the pizza slides off the peel so will a lot of the flour. There's nothing worse than biting into a slice and getting a nice flour patch on your tongue. If you want to lay out the paddle with grid-lines you can definitely make it look a lot nicer. My excuse was I had to use the peel shortly thereafter and didn't want any sharpie or lead on my peel. I just started making holes, and before I knew it was time to cook. Next time I'll finish it off. It was real nice seeing the flour fall right through. A perforated peel, one of the finer things in backyard pizza.
