10 Uses for a Pizza Cutter

I love my pizza cutter. I've talked about it before in my "A Few Of My Favorite Things" post but seriously, I use my pizza cutter just about everyday...I've figured out it can make my life a lot more simple and meal-prep a whole lot faster!

So here are just 10 ways (of many) on how I use my pizza cutter...

1) Cutting pizza (brillant, huh?)

2) Cutting sandwiches in half for the kiddos.

3) Cutting up pancakes in a jiffy!

4) Cutting meat quickly.

5) Cutting quesadillas nice and neat.

6) Cutting the crust off of bread (not that I would ever do such a wasteful thing for my kids *wink*)

7) Cutting grapes in half for your toddler.

8) Cutting up spaghetti for little ones.

9) Cutting hotdogs up.

10) Cutting up potatoes. Yep, I use it even on potatoes!


So in other words, I use my pizza cutter on pretty much EVERYTHING :)

If you can think of any more uses for a pizza cutter, do share, Share, SHARE!

You must have one amazing pizza cutter if it works on potatoes!! Mine would probably break...ha!

I use it for spaghetti! I hate the mess long noodles make!

bigbinder said...

Definitely the quesadilla - I think I use it more for that than for pizza. And grilled cheese, just kind of zips through it instead of gunking up a knife. Fun list :)

Julie said...

Wow..more great ideas for the use of our pizza cutter!! Why thank you, dear Grace!!

Cutting homemade egg noodles!

My pizza wheel cutter is kind of pathetic and has a tendency to always be dirty when i need it since it doesn't like to fit in my dishwasher very well so I procrastinate putting it in there and how is this for a run-on sentence... *gasps for air* I have a pair of food scissors though which I use for EVERYTHING. Now that I've had food scissors I will never ever be without them. They are an indespensible piece of kitchen equipment! And since my pizza wheel is so pathetic, guess what I use to cut pizza? My food scissors! ;)

I never even thought of pancakes or spaghetti! Brilliant!

Does Play dough count?
It also works on pie crusts, if you want a staight line to do the fancy basket weave on the top crust.

Wow! You thought of alot!! I usually remember pizza & sandwiches & tend to forget about everything else. Thanks for the reminder:)

oh amanda said...

OK. Seriously. This is such a great idea. I use my kitchen scissors all the time to cut things up but a pizza cutter would be easy, too! Thanks for the great tips!

Danielle said...

Thanks for sharing...I'll definitely use it for spaghetti and pancakes from now on!!!

This was a favorite tool of mine when my kids were little and needed their food cut up! Never did try potatoes though! Thanks so much for linking up!

Amy @ Raising Arrows said...

Suddenly I feel rather slow...it never occurred to me to use a pizza cutter for half of that! That is absolutely brilliant..great post! :)

thecoolmom said...

I love using mine for quesadillas too. It also works great for cutting bread dough into bread sticks.

Julie Bagamary said...

Such a multipurpose tool is worth it's space in my small kitchen.

Marjie R said...

Nate and I used to argue over the proper use of a pizza cutter all the time. He used them for EVERYTHING and then when I wanted to cut pizza I couldn't find one. Well I've learned if you can't beat 'em join 'em. We now have MANY pizza cutters and he routinely gets them for Father's Day, a stocking stuffer, his birthday... Now if I can only teach him the proper use of knives!

I've got a pampered chef pizza cutter. I gotta remember to use it more often!

Hishandmaid said...

This is a great post! My cutter has been sadly neglected, but not anymore!

Pampered Chef, here I come!

Jessica said...

UM... genius!! You are amaxing, honest! I will now BFF (best friends forever) my pizza cutter. I would have never thought of anything other than PIZZA... I am lame like that I suppose. Thank you, really... THANK YOU!!

Have a great Thursday!
