peel pizza on peelafter 12 years of using the back of a cookie sheet to transfer pizzas to and from my pizza stone, i finally bought a peel.

you asked me about the origin of the word. the fearless naomi said:
if i had to guess, it's from the french "pelle", which is a shovel

merriam-webster backs her up.
Etymology: Middle English pele, from Anglo-French, from Latin pala
Date: 14th century

regardless, the pizza last night was tasty :)
