A pizza cutter does more than just slice pizza.
I was cutting some toast for one of my daughters one morning and the pizza cutter with its new homemade cardboard scabbard was still out from the night before so I decided to see how it would work on toast. To my surprise, it worked beautifully.
So then I tried it on my other daughter's egg-in-hole and again it performed like a charm. I now figured I was on to something.
For the record, if you make your own pizza or buy frozen commercial brands like DiGiorno, a pizza cutter is a must. It makes slicing a pizza into kid-sized slices that much easier. Not that we eat a lot of pizza in our house, but it is a staple when we go out and have babysitters who are early on in their culinary education.
So now I'm thinking what have I been missing all these years and what else might this circular blade be used for cutting. I'm on a mission to see how many unique and interesting ways one can use a pizza cutter besides slicing pizza.
I figure I'm not the first one to think of using a pizza cutter for other kitchen chores so I invite you to share some of your favorite ways you have utilized this handy kitchen gadget.
