Another installment of “An X can be used to make a handy Y”April 8, 2009
Made pizza this evening. We have a pizza stone, but you need a peel to get the pizza on easily.
I don’t own a peel, and they cost quite a bit. I’ve been using breadboards etc but they’re somewhat unsatisfactory, because they’re too thick.
Suddenly I realised that peels need to be stiff, thin, food-safe, able to touch a 250C stone without melting, and matte finish, and that therefore a large piece of corrugated cardboard would make an excellent pizza peel. And it did.
