Learning to use a round pizza peel and developing your turning skills in the oven is most beneficial and recommended.
It will take a bit of practice to use the round turning peel but with some time it will be worth it.
Round turning pizza peels are made of metal and they can be both perforated and solid.
The perforated pizza peels have the benefit of allowing the heat from the pizza stone to cook your pizza as it turns and also allows excess flour to be dislodged from the pizza base.

The turning peel can also be used as a handy tool to prevent the top of your pizza from overcooking when needed. You can do this by using the peel to shield the top of your pizza from the flame.
The peel can also be used to lift the pizza toward the flame when you need to cook your crust or when your base has cooked but your crusts have not. This procedure allows you to manage the cook of your pizza with more precision.
With some practice, learning to use a turning peel for your pizza cook will give you the opportunity to cook your pizza with more precision against the heat. It will also allow you to turn your pizza without burning your fingers and misshaping your round pizza.
Plus, don't forget the handle length of your peel. If you are using a pizza oven with a flame close to the front of the oven you will need to use a long-handled peel to protect your hands.
The size of your pizza oven and the pizza size will also determine the size of your peel. The peels are sold in various sizes and the portable pizza ovens normally use size 7" to 8" pizza peels. Larger pizza ovens use 9" to 10" pizza peels.
