We have to admit that when it comes to pizza paddles and any other rounded product, oak is not always the most suitable material. Unfortunately, oak needs to be jointed and sometimes wants to cup, therefore it is not ideal. To combat this issue, we believe the best material for these products is 12mm thick Latvian birch ply.
As a result, for pizza paddles we use a birch ply here at Oak&Ford. We think it is ideal for your pizza paddles; where your warm, moist pizza base is going to cover most of the wood.
You should care for these boards in the same as any wooden service board; use a generous lashing of vegetable oil every few days. If you follow simple care procedures, these boards will not split, warp or bow. You can enjoy service on these paddles time and time again, safe in the knowledge that your food will look presentable every time.
