Why is my pizza sticking to the Stone Baking Board?

Pizzas sticking to the Stone Baking Board or peel can be the result of a few variables:

  • The dough is too wet. We would recommend following our own pizza dough recipe that has yet to fail us at Ooni HQ. You can find it here.
  • Your dough has a hole in it. If your dough has a hole in it, the toppings will fall into the oven and can cause the pizza to stick. Be careful to check this while your pizza is still on the peel.
  • You are trying to lift the pizza too soon. If you try to rotate the pizza too quickly, the bottom will still be moist and will stick. Give your pizza a few extra seconds to begin to crisp on the bottom.

Giving a gentle blow of air under the base can help to ease the pizza in to the oven. You can see how Kristian does this here
