Pizza scissors

I was just given a pair of pizza scissors by a friend and I totally love them! They have this little plastic bit on the bottom of them so you don't scratch the pizza tray when you're cutting and the toppings actually stay where they're supposed to. Brilliant!

I have used kitchen shears for cutting pizza for years now. My friend, who demo'd frozen pizza at grocery stores, told me about this. Mine are just regular shears so I have to lift the edge of the pizza if I made it on a tray. But they work way better than the rolling pizza cutter and even better than the big, rocking pizza knife.

That's brilliant! I have slice marks all over my pan from my rotary cutter. I'm going to add the pizza scissors to my b-day list for DH right now!

Cutting pizza with scissors?


Not in my 38 years have i ever heard of somebody even use the words "Scissors" and "Pizza" in the same sentence.

Try using a chef knife. Just line it up where you want to make the cut and press down on the top side of the blade with the palm of your other hand. I don't even use my rolling pizza cutter anymore.

Interesting! I've always used a big commercial cutter, but that scissors looks like a goodie for when I'm demoing and want to cut REALLY thin slices.

I've "demoed" a few pizzas too CJ, but I think you're talking about a different "demo"
