The Most Beautiful Pizza Peel I've Ever Seen

When you get super serious about making pizza at home — especially if you get really intense about it and build your own pizza oven — the next thing on the required-equipment list is a pizza peel. A peel is a long-handled board that lets you slip pizzas in and out of the oven easily, while still keeping your distance from the heat.

They are usually quite plain and functional — but not this one. It's one-of-a-kind, and practically an art piece.

This peel was created by artist Cecilia Galluccio, who owns Burned Furniture, a shop based in Massachusetts. Her work is done primarily with woodburning techniques, which she uses to create intricate, folk art-inspired designs on furniture and kitchen accessories like bowls, spoons, and chopsticks.

She found this pizza peel at a thrift shop and upcycled it through adding her beautiful ivy design, a long and time-consuming process.

While this is a perfectly good and functional piece, it would also look amazing on a wall in the kitchen between pizza sessions.

If this is a little out of your budget, but it's time to invest in a peel, check out these peels, in a range of prices.
