My daughter received a pizza paddle for Christmas (not from me). She went online to see how to season it and found suggestions to use tung oil. She called me to question this. She said that the article also stated that it would take about two weeks to get it finally seasoned using tung oil. It also stated the hardening tung oil would also help the pizza slide off the paddle easier. Not having a clue I told her I would submit this the you all (THE EXPERTS IN ALL THINGS WOOD). OK, here’s your chance. Enlighten us, PLEASE. Is tung oil the best way to season/seal a pizza paddle or just let the natural oils from the food products season it? Since this paddle isn’t used daily I wouldn’t think letting the oils from the foods do it would be a good idea.
