Made some pizza for lunch and was very happy with it. Got a ways to go but Im getting there from all the posts on here. One thing Im finding is I don't like parchment paper. I think Im going to try to do pizza without it. Any thoughts?

    I use parchment for the ease of handling but yank it out after a minute

    Screw the parchment. If you're serious about making pizza get a super peel.

    Man, and I thought I was serious about making pizza this whole time.
    Parchment paper on a cookie sheet seems to be the best of MANY ways to do it for me. Good luck.

    I make pizza every Friday night and I have never used parchment paper.  I have a wooden peel and I put about a tablespoon of corn meal on it and take my hand and rub it all over the peel.

    I roll the dough out to my liking, then put it on the peel to assemble.  Shake it a couple of times to keep it loose as you put on the toppings.

    After a little practice you will be able to transfer it to the pizza stone with a little flick of the wrist.

    Might just be me, but I don't like cornmeal on my pizza.

    I find that the vast majority of the cornmeal stays on the peel and very little sticks to the bottom of the pizza.

    I found the corn meal added a bitter flavor.  I do paper, and remove it at around 5 minutes.
