Practical Pizza-Maker Gifts
The options for funny pizza gifts are endless, but there’s an abundance of joy for the more practical aficionado, too.
A pizza making class.
Are you or someone you love ready to take the dough into your own hands? Give the gift of homemade pizza. Cozymeal can take you on a culinary journey of your own creation with local pizza-making classes. (They also offer gift cards!)
A new pizza stone.
“Compared to the metal of a baking sheet, the ceramic material of a pizza stone holds heat more evenly, and the porous surface draws water out of particularly wet areas of the dough as it cooks. Plus, when you preheat the stone, it gives the dough a strong burst of initial heat, puffing up the crust. A pan can’t do that.”
See? A PAN CAN’T DO THAT.
A folding pizza peel with a stone brush.
Nothing levels up an at-home pizza game like this pizza peel and stone brush. This is an accessory for a real professional.
Pizza cutter rocker blade (with cover).
If you or your pizza pals are still using those janky little round pizza cutters, get up right now and go throw them away. I’ll wait. Once you use this badass pizza cutter rocker blade, you’ll never want to go back.
A dough docker.
This is THE tool for the pizza perfectionist. This dough docker will help you pierce your pizza dough to prevent over-rising or blistering.
A portable outdoor pizza oven.
Sure, a grill is great, but what if you just want some good old fashioned pizza from the oven? With this portable outdoor pizza oven, you can have your backyard pizza party anywhere.
A dough rolling mat.
Roll out your dough on a non-slip, non-stick silicone surface. This dough rolling mat will make any pizza maker feel like a real pizza chef.
A useful pizza slice server.
Keep your fingers off the crust! Serve your slice like you’re in a real pizzaria with this pizza slice server.
A Reheatza – to reheat your pizza.
I can sympathize with anyone who reheats their pizza in the microwave. It’s a huge compromise in quality, but it’s also much faster — and sometimes you just have to make that sacrifice.
Not anymore. The Reheatza helps you reheat your pizza to crispy perfection in the microwave!
Pizza slice containers.
Pizza leftovers are the best, but storing them can be a hassle. The box clutters up the fridge, but all your takeaway containers are squares, rectangles, and circles. This ingenious invention solves those storage woes with a pizza slice-shaped container for your lunchbox lefties.
