Cheesey, saucy, covered in toppings, or perfectly plain, pizza is a culinary masterpiece and we won't be told otherwise. There are as many different ways to cook pizza as there are meats and vegetables to put on top of it, but one of our favorite methods is using a pizza stone in the oven (or even a special pizza oven). It's just too hard to beat the crust this technique yields.

The only catch with cooking on a pizza stone is the tricky bit of maneuvering it requires to get the uncooked—and highly malleable—pizza dough from the counter to the stone and then back off again when it's piping hot. Amazon shoppers point to a solution, however, in the form of the Heritage Products Wooden Pizza Peel, which has more than 1,400 five-star ratings.

This pizza peel is made from solid acacia wood and is polished for a smooth transition for your Margherita pie. The wood is thick enough that it resists warping over time, yet the edges are tapered to effortlessly slide underneath pizzas. It has an ergonomic handle that makes controlling the peel a breeze and it's large enough to easily fit 12-inch pies, too. It's "the perfect tool for the job," according to one five-star review. And right now, it's 20% off.

Pizza isn't this peel's only function. Its quality craftsmanship makes the peel a kitchen tool that's so attractive, shoppers say they get "the urge to hang it on the wall [as a] piece of art!" It's also meant to be used as a serving board, not only for white ricotta pies, but for cheese and charcuterie, too. Regardless of how it's used, those who own it agree that it's a great buy.

"Out of the box, this thing is beautiful," another shopper writes. "I briefly considered just adding it to my growing collection of beautiful and cool charcuterie platters, but then remembered, 'Oh yeah, I need to get pizzas out of my screaming hot custom built wood-fired pizza oven.' And that's what this does, very well. [It's] lightweight and easy to use, pretty as a prayer book, and functional."
