Pizza peels are one of the essential pizza accessories that you need to make great pizza. We have covered pizza peels before, from material to length to thickness, but now we want to look at another cool thing you can do with a pizza peel: engrave it.

You are probably thinking, “why engrave it?” Well, we will tell you why, because it looks cool and an engraved pizza peel makes an excellent gift for your favorite pizzaiolo.

When my wife and I got together, we bonded over our mutual love of pizza. Of course, we have other things in common, but that connection to a piping hot cheesy pizza really did it for us. So in honor of our love of each other and all things pizza, we had a pizza peel engraved for our new shared home.

Our engraved pizza peel was symbolic of our new life together and our shared name. And it’s not just decorative whether we actually use it to make pizza. 

We thought we would share some of our favorite pizza peels that you can get engraved. They make great gifts and serve as a functional piece of art for your kitchen. We have a  special spot on the wall for ours, and just take it down when we need it.

So if you are looking for a great wedding gift, an engraved pizza peel should make your list. Of course, you don’t have to get married to get an engraved pizza peel; they make great gifts for anyone who loves making homemade pizza. Or you might be wondering how to use a pizza peel with your pizza oven.

We have gathered three of our favorite pizza peels. All of these options would be perfect alone, but when you engrave them, they become even more special.

Personalized Pizza Peel


This large wooden pizza peel is made with American walnut hardwood. It’s quite large and measures 22″ x 16″. We love the dark rich colors of the pizza peel.

It would look great on any wall. This peel comes seasoned with oil, and you will want to season it each time you use it. If properly cared for, this pizza peel will last a lifetime.

Acacia Wood Pizza Peel

This board is a genuine Acacia Wooden Pizza Board and measures 14″ x 14″. It has a tapered edge making it easy to get your pizza in and out of the oven.

There are six styles to choose from, so you have some engraving options and can choose the best for you. After the $70 bas price, the engraving is free and has fast shipping; what more could you ask for?

Paisley Box Wood Pizza Peel

The Paisley Box pizza peel is lightweight and measures approximately 14″ x 12″ with an 8″. You can customize this board with four different engraving options. They offer two-sided engraving, so you can design the engraved pizza peel exactly as you want.

How to Care For Your Pizza Peel

Properly caring for your wood pizza peel will ensure it doesn’t warp or crack. Luckily, taking care of it is easy peasy. The best way to care for a wood pizza peel is to season it after each use.

You will need to use a food-safe oil like mineral oil and cover the peel with it so it can soak in, and then gently wipe it off. You will want to avoid using olive oil or vegetable oil because they can become rancid and destroy the pizza peel.

Another way to keep your peel in good condition is to always avoid cutting your pizza on the pizza peel. Instead, transfer it to a large cutting board and let it sit for a minute or two and then cut slice up your pizza pie.

Another important tip is to keep your peel moisture-free at all times. Moisture can destroy the wood. After each use, make sure to wipe it clean and completely dry it before storing it.

Other Ideas to Customize
