I tried doing a pizza for the first time this evening, bought a stone, a peel and thought I was all set. I bought a pre-made pizza dough, spread it out, tossed it, put my ingredients on and thought I had the makings of a damn good pizza....until I tried to slide it off the peel, it simply wouldn't slide. Not sure if I didn't use enough corn meal on the peel or what; is putting corn meal on the peel the only thing make it slide off easier? Any other tips on this for a budding pizza maker?
Overall it didn't come out too bad, ended up sorta folding the pizza over and throwing a TON of corn meal on the peel and working around the pizza. It finally came off, but was a real mess.
Any advice greatly appreciated!
