Roundup of Pizza Tools

Off to Market Recap: Pizza Tools

undefined

Both YumSugar and I are huge fans of homemade pizza. However, in a recent discussion, we realized neither one of us owns any of the tools necessary to make the best homemade pizza. I'm talking about pizza stones, durable, strong pizza cutters, circular wooden boards for serving, etc. Thus, I decided it was time for me to search the Internet for practical pizza tools. I bookmarked my finds in the Off to Market group in the YumSugar Community so that I could share them with you. How fabulous is this pizza kit for dummies?

Although I'm not a dummy when it comes to making pizza, I would love to get a pizza stone, pan, server, slicer, saucer, and cheese grater all at once! Browse my collection below and tell me, what pizza tool are you coveting?

I have never heard of wetting the stone either. I usually pre-heat my oven for around 30 min. if I can wait that long, or at least until it gets up to 475. I generally make pizza crusts and sauce, and then pre-package that and cubed mozzarella for the freezer. So when I'm in the mood for pizza I just need to pull it out for defrost, and 10 min. after sticking it in the oven, it's done. A bit quicker than delivery and much tastier.

I got my pizza stone at Target almost 2 years ago. We use it at least once a week and its still in great condition. I've never heard of wetting the stone. I always just preheat it for 10- 15 minutes and our crust turns out crunchy.

Thanks for all of your suggestions. Also one more is it necessary to wet the stone before baking to give the crust that "crunchy" texture? I am thinking about making ciabatta [sic] bread on it.

I got the first pizza cutter you featured as a gift, my model is called the pizza chop and it works great, but you definitely need a large wooden cutting board for it. It's just fun to use and easier to clean. My dad has used granite as a pizza stone for years and years, he usually gets a new one every several years when he hears a friend is remodeling their kitchen! I've had a basic pizza stone for a few years with new cracking issues, but sometimes I use a baking pan, depending on the dough recipe. So def invest in a few pizza things, I never order delivery anymore.

Wood-fired pizza oven.Must.Have.Now. Wooow, I was considering begging one of our neighbors to teach me how to build one in our teeny backyard, but that is AWESOME! @GummiBears (love your name!) I got my pizza stone from Kohls and we keep it in the oven and it's fine. I think it helps conduct heat when we bake, too.

GummiBears, I've had my pizza stone for 3 years now, and it is still intact. I keep mine in the oven on the lowest rack all the time, and while I've ripped a few pizzas on it which has stained it a bit, it's still in good condition. I got it and the pizza peel at Williams-Sonoma.

I really want a pizza stone but the thing is I hear so much about them shattering into fragments due to the temperature. Is there a way to season them to prevent that from happening? Also I read that you can go to a home supply store and purchase a slab of granite and it would work just as well but you have to be careful that it doesn't contain lead or any harmful contaminates. Anyone care to correct me or inform me? I would really appreciate it.
