Slice-and-serve pizza scissors? Yes, please

We’d venture to guess that you’ve been using a pizza wheel (or pizza cutter, as it’s alternatively known) to roll across your pie and carve out a slice. This may work just fine for you, but for a few crafty folks out there, messing around with that tricky wheel and creating irreparable scratches in their pizza pans just proved too unwieldy. Thus was the birth of the pizza scissors. There are many versions of this product offered by several manufacturers, but the one we find most intriguing is the Swedish-made Sagaform Pizza Scissors, a cleverly designed tool that combines kitchen shears with a wedge-shaped spatula. Cut and serve perfect slices, one-handed and without losing toppings or oozing cheese. A thoughtful gift for the pizza lover in your life.
