Question for Pizza Makers

A very good friend has become obsessed with making homemade pizza and is terrific at it. I want to get him a couple of things for Christmas relating to this, such as a really good pizza cutter, a pizza board, etc... any ideas and brands would be appreciated, thank you!

      I have the super peel and I really like it. As far as pizza cutters, I bought this RSVP pizza cutter at a local store and I use it all the time.

    2. Well, if they're obsessed, then I would venture to guess they already have a peel and cutter.
      Do they have a scale? That might work, but like I said...depending on how obsessed, they may have a lot of these already.

      Maybe a pizza stone for the grill? If they have one? Maybe get a large giftbasket of Italian cheeses? salumi?

      1. This may be a little abstract, but you should see if any of the really famous pizza shops would be willing to sell you some starter dough. It would definitely be a unique gift.

        1. I like this website a lot - well priced, quality goods. Check them out - I have been very happy with everything I ordered from them.

          1. Reinhart's "American Pie" pizza book is worthy. Maybe some good accessory ingredients--olive oil, or dried porcini mushrooms.

            Edit: let me add the idea of a fun apron. Anyone working with doughs can use one.

              Love Reinhart's books. Agree with the ingredients idea. Or, a gift certificate to King Arthur Flour's online Bakers Catalog. Love their website and they have great customer service.
