Indoor Bread Baking

Yes, parchment paper is the easiest method of transferring dough to preheated Dutch ovens, but yesterday I brought my wooden peel into the house, and it worked just fine. I spread some cornmeal on the peel, turned the dough that had been rising in the basket onto it and then slid the dough off onto the Dutch oven base. It worked flawlessly. I had plenty of room, and it was a lot easier than taking aim and trying to plunk down the dough into the center of the bull's eve. And I didn't burn myself.
