The Tools You’ll Need
A pizza cutter is a kitchen tool designed to cut pizzas into slices. There are two main types of pizza cutters: the wheel and the rocker. Wheel cutters have a large, circular blade that rolls along the pizza as you push it. Rocker cutters have a flat blade that rocks back and forth as you move it across the pizza.
Both types of pizza cutters are effective, but some people prefer one over the other. Here are a few things to consider when choosing a pizza cutter:
-Your favorite type of cutter (wheel or rocker)
-The size of your pizzas (small, medium, or large)
-The thickness of your crust (thin, thick, or extra thick)
-The topping density (light, medium, or heavy)
-Your personal preference
If you plan on making pizzas with multiple toppings or extra-thick crusts, you may want to choose a rocker cutter over a wheel cutter. Rocker cutters can handle thicker toppings and crusts better than wheel cutters. They’re also easier to control when cutting around complex topping patterns.
On the other hand, wheel cutters are faster and easier to use than rocker cutters. They’re also less likely to squish soft toppings like cheese or mushrooms. If you make mostly thin-crust pizzas with simple topping patterns, a wheel cutter may be the best choice for you.
You can cut a pizza with just about anything sharp, but a knife is really the best tool for the job. Look for a good chef’s knife or slicing knife. It should be at least 8 inches (20 cm) long, but longer is better. A serrated knife will also work well.
The Right Way to Cut a Pizza
Pizza is a food that is near and dear to many people’s hearts. It’s a classic dish that can be made in endless different ways. One of the most important parts of making a pizza is cutting it correctly. In this article, we’ll teach you the right way to cut a pizza.
Step One: Place the pizza on a cutting board
Before you start cutting it’s important to have all the right tools in place. First, you’ll need a cutting board big enough to fit the whole pizza. If you don’t have a board that size, you can use a large plate or even an upside-down baking sheet. Just make sure whatever surface you use is stable and won’t slip around while ’re cutting
Once you have your cutting board place the pizza on it. If the pizza is fresh out of the oven, let it cool for a few minutes so you can handle it more easily. If it’s not hot and you still can’t pick it up, try sliding a large spatula under the pie to help move it.
Step Two: Grab a knife
Now that you’ve got your pizza, it’s time to cut it. The type of knife you use is up to you, but we recommend a serrated knife for the best results. Start by grabbing the pizza with one hand and the knife in the other.
Step Three: Slice the pizza in half
Next, you’ll want to slice the pizza in half so that you have two semi-circles.leftover pizza is easier to reheat when it’s in smaller pieces, so this will also make your life easier down the road. Plus, it’s just less awkward to eat a slice that’s been cut in half.
Step Four: Slice the pizza into quarters
Now that the pizza is properly cut, it’s time to slice it into quarters. Take your knife and slice the pizza vertically down the middle, then slice each half in half. You should now have four equal quarters.
Step Five: Slice the pizza into eighths
Now that your pizza is cut into fourths, it’s time to cut each quarter into eighths. Once again, start from the middle and work your way out. You can either use a knife or a pizza cutter for this step – whichever you’re more comfortable with. And that’s it! You’ve now cut your pizza into neat, even slices that are ready to be devoured.
The Wrong Way to Cut a Pizza
Most people think they know how to cut a pizza, but they are usually doing it wrong. The wrong way to cut a pizza leads to uneven slices, a mess, and wasted pizza. Let’s learn the right way to cut a pizza so that you can enjoy your pizza the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
Step One: Place the pizza on a cutting board
No matter what kind of pizza cutter you use, you’ll get neater slices if you start by placing the pie on a cutting board. A wooden board is ideal, but any kind of stable cutting surface will do. If you’re using a pizza stone, wait until the pie is cool enough to handle before transferring it to a cutting board.
Step Two: Pick up the pizza
With one hand on the handle, place the other hand close to the blade. Slowly and carefully lift the pizza off the cutting board. If the pizza is large or unwieldy, consider getting someone to help you carry it to the table.
Step Three: Try to slice the pizza with your hands
Don’t do this. Picking up a slice of pizza and eating it with your hands is perfectly acceptable. Slicing it with your hands is not. first of all, it’s a waste of time. You can cut a pizza much faster with a knife and fork than you can with your hands. Second, it’s messy. Slicing the pizza with your hands will result in sauce and cheese all over your fingers. And third, it’s just not necessary. If you want to eat a slice of pizza with your hands, go ahead. But don’t try to slice it first.
