What's Best for Cutting Pizza?

My Oxo pizza wheel isn't doing such a great job anymore; it's gotten really dull, and doesn't breeze through the outer edge of a crispy crust anymore. It gets the job done, but I'm not feeling any love from it.

What's your recommendation for a great pizza cutter?

  1. My friend's Mom always used scissors, for pizza and a lot more, I do too

      yes - scissors, even dull ones are the best.

    2. 10" chef knife. kept sharp for other reasons.....

      1. I have been known to score, rip and tear. At home. I do expect more when ordering at a restaurant.

        1. i've got one of those big blades - kind of like a giant mezzaluna - that works pretty well. it was kind of cheapo - i sharpened it and it works well now. I bet a sharp, long chef's knife would do the job as well though.

          ps this is about the 5th thing i have tried - none of the wheel cutters i tried ever really worked..

            I have the same thing, but never thought to sharpen it! Thanks for the tip.

            Also have the OXO cutter, but found it puts a real strain on my wrist cutting through thick outer crusts so I retired it years ago.

          2. Scissors. Or "kitchen shears".

            I make really really really thin crust.
