This holiday season, toss some professional quality tools into your cart for the pizza lovers in your life. 

Here’s a list of 18 products chosen by the Pizza Lovers at

Browne Dough Scrapers with Wood Handles 

Browne | Dough Scraper with Wood Handle

Working dough is hard - but worth the time - so give your pizza lover a great tool to make their life easier.  A dough cutter, also called a dough scraper, is designed to cut dough into smaller pieces, help work dough into shapes and can get every last morsel off the counter.  But can also be used to level off measuring cups and spoons. 

The stainless steel blade is strong and durable while the handle is comfortable and ergonomic to reduce hand fatigue.  


SignatureWares Perforated Pizza Pans

SignatureWares | Perforated Pizza Pan, Aluminum

If crispy crust is the preference of your pizza lover(s), this is the pan they want.  A lightweight aluminum pan with many holes. 

These holes allow for air ventilation to reach the crust which causes two things: a crispy crust and decreased cook time. 

CHEF NOTE: Our pizza pans are designed for commercial ovens...the larger sizes may not fit in a home oven.


SignatureWares Pizza Screeens

SignatureWares | Pizza Screen, Aluminum

Really, a screen with a rim, these specialty pizza pans create the crispiest crusts in the fastest time.  It has the added bonus of reduced condensation if the finished pizza sits for a bit of time before being served. 

Time is money (and reduces the “how much longer” whines from hungry guests) and baking a pizza on one of these screens is fast but reheating foods is a snap.

Pizza Pan Grippers

Browne | Pizza Pan Gripper, 7.5", Nickel Plated

Help the pizza artist in your life get a good grip on their creations with a pizza pan gripper.  Perfect for safely and securely pulling pans out of the oven and getting them to the counter without mishap. Pan grippers including Browne's or American Metalcraft's nylon gripper or metal gripper for shallow pans are a must for pizzerias, including the home pizzeria. 

Pizza trays, pizza pans, deep dish, pizza screens and even oven racks can be shifted, turned and moved with pan grippers.  Sure, oven mitts can do the same job, but many times get in the way and can crush rising crusts or accidentally get into perfectly placed toppings. 


Vollrath Traex Box Grater

Vollrath | Traex Dripcut 4 Sided Box Grater, Stainless Steel 

When it comes to graters, it’s hip to be square.  Old school and low tech they may be, however, square graters (also called box graters) are a staple of kitchens big and small for good reason. Easy to use, stable to operate, with two types of shreds (coarse and medium), julienne and slicer and conveniently collects all together inside the box. Your pizza lover will wonder how they operated without this kitchen essential in their life. 

They may even go outside the box with this grater and use it for waaaay more than shredding cheese. 


Edge grain maple paddle board and charcuterie


Labell | Paddle Board, 3/4" Thick, Edge Grain Maple

Presentation is just as important as the quality ingredients, care and detail in building a delicious pie. This Canadian maple paddle board is a perfect choice – practical for everyday use but still add some style when entertaining. 

Your pizza lover will proudly serve their hand stretched smoky potato flatbread with honey thyme drizzle. Or, if they are smart, first put together a charcuterie board to keep family and friends appeased while their pizzas are baked to perfection. 


Dexter Pizza Cutters with different coloured handles

Dexter | Sani-Safe Pizza Cutter, 5" Blade 

Assist your pizza lover in their attempt to achieve the Isosceles – a slice from a perfectly cut pizza.  No tool is more iconic than a pizza cutter.  A professional quality pizza cutter (also called a roller blade or pizza wheel) boasts a comfortable (ergonomic) handle with a finger guard for safety and strong stainless steel blade wheel for smooth and even cutting through various types of crusts. 

Used for more than just slicing ‘za, a pizza cutter is perfect for cutting pastry dough, phyllo, quesadillas and tortillas. Roll on, pizza cutter, roll on! 


Old Stone Pizza Kitchen Pizza Stones

Old Stone Pizza Kitchen | Rectangular Pizza Stone

Old Stone Pizza Kitchen | Pizza Stone, Round

As much as your pizza lover would love a commercial pizza oven or outdoor brick oven for baking their pies – budget and space (and spouse) may not allow it. The next best thing is a pizza stone.  Designed to replicate the brick floor of professional ovens and give the crust its signature crispy texture. 

Perfect for high-heat baking that’s needed for pizza, a pizza stone (also called a baking stone) won’t burn the crust before the top is done. That’s because the stone is a poor conductor of heat - don't worry, that's a good thing! 


SignatureWares Pizza Peels

SignatureWares | Pizza Peel, 12" x 12" with 22" Handle

A tool from professional kitchens and pizzerias worldwide, a pizza peel is the best utensil for moving whole uncooked and cooked pizzas in and out of a pizza oven. 

The long 22" wood handle (we also have a 14" x 14" blade version) stays cool and keeps them safely away from the heat and the thin metal peel (blade) makes it easier to place and remove entire pizzas.  They can even prep pizza directly on the peel.  Smaller kitchen?  No worries, we have a 12" handled pizza peel as well!

Paired with a pizza stone, your pizza lover is one step closer to pizza perfection when you give them this a-peeling gift. 


American Metalcraft Pizza Stands for the Table

American Metalcraft | Round Pizza Stands, Stainless Steel

Pizza deserves a noble presentation.  Pizza will always bring people running to the table, but why not get a few "wow's" as they approach. These stainless steel stands can handle a variety of pizza pan sizes and with two heights, your pie maker's 'za will be above the rest.

How about a contemporary swirl style pizza stand, instead? Flippable to accommodate a variety of pizza pan sizes, these are easy to clean


Lloyd Pan Deep Dish Sicilian Type Pizza Pan

Lloyd Pans | Deep Dish Pizza Pan, 10.5" x 6" x 1", Aluminum

If they are ready to get regional in their pizza repertoire, add this rectangular deep dish pizza pan to their inventory.  Sicilian-style pizza has a thick, spongy dough with delightfully crispy bottom.  In fact, sfincione, the name for this pizza in Italian, loosely translates to thick sponge. 

Slices of this specialty pizza are square - trust us, there will be a fight for the corner pieces!


 SignatureWares Deep Dish Pizza Pans

SignatureWares | Deep Dish Pizza Pan, 1" Deep, Aluminum

Give your pizza lover the pan they need to try out some Chicago-style pizza recipes!  Simply referred to as deep dish pizza, a pizza pan with sides is imperative to achieve the high edge crust typical of this type of pizza. Do they prefer a deep dish perforated pizza pan - we got you covered!

With the tall crust edges, a deep dish pizza looks more like a pie than a pizza.  Which is good if you love toppings, because your pizza lover can layer them on thick!

CHEF NOTE: Our pizza pans are designed for commercial ovens...the larger sizes may not fit in a home oven.
