is there something wrong with you??
People DO this?
You can actually get scissors designed for this very purpose.
I prefer to use a great big fuck-off knife
but they sound like freaks, do they have a special pair of pizza scissors?
does this. fact. seems to get a good cut, but i prefer the more orthodox bigknife approach.
he does not use the special pizza scissors.
It freaks me out. Using scissors with food full stop is just a bit wierd..
at university did this on a regular basis which baffled me. when i questioned him about it all he could say was why not!
When those spinning cutter things are so fun
I have one of those cicular pizza cutters at home.
They cost like 50p so dont you DARE Label them an impractical expense, they have a purpose but arent neccisary
is where its at if it comes to it just eat it with a knife and fork, but don't get out the scissors thats just strange heheh
pizza cutter ftw
it takes me back to when i used the scissors to cut a stubborn bit off my soggy, stinking, putrid, shoe lace.
if its a pizza only scissor, thats not too bad.
One-purpose kitchen-cluttering gadets like pizza wheels suck.
However - if scissor length < pizza radius, bad, burny things may happen. Ouch.
thebest thing about eating a pizza is most definitely the eating part.
scalding hot sauce and the fun of licking off bits of your own seared flesh from the roof of your mouth.
a whole new category to my 'list of people who can fuck off'. This list is reaching stupid proportions now.
thus it is excellent.
I don't want greasey shit all over my hands thanks!
before when I misplaced the pizza wheel.
I've done this before - with kitchen scissors - ie, tuppaware ones my mum bought me yeears ago... when the crusty bits weren't cut properly in the pizza shop. Then again, I'm the only person I know who insists on eating pizza with a knife and fork.
has made me decided that i am going to eat pizza using a knife and fork exclusively from now on.
I hate you rick.
know what I'm gonna cut it with? A knife.
and I still think its really strange...
I have a pizza in the oven and unless I go insane within the next 20 mins I will not be cutting it with scisors.
Big fuck off knife or pizza cutta innit!!
This thread is makng me teary-eyed with nostaliga.
she came over my house and tried to do it to my pizza, i rightfully slapped her to the ground and booted her firmly in the face.*
*may be a slight over exaggeration
have the courage of your convictions
NO FEAR OF PERSECUTION, yay.
"TEH INTERNETZ TOLD ME IT WAS OK"
SHE WAS CUTTING PIZZA WITH SCISSORS
i think they'd probably lock her up too, for good measure
cutting pizza with ancient runic blades from fantasy novels eh Icwar?
anyone want a pizza (pineapple optional)?
and they said that you should cut pizzas with scissors so the mozzarella didn't stretch
never tried it though. kinda like a pizza now
"Well it was ok until dinner and then it got totally ruined by over-stretched mozzarella. "
anyway tonight i will buy a pizza, cut with with my scissors and then fold it together, then i shall eat it.
i enjoyed it immensely, anyway i'm italian i can get away with it.
instead of me cooking a nutritious meal for myself
fuck you all
It was actually even easier than the pizza roller.
The next day i contracted appendicitis
I saw them demonstrate this on Blue Peter years ago. It's actually genius - neat and doesn't mash up the pizza.
But I always forget and use the biggest knife in the drawer.
Pizza Cutter > Scissors >>>>> Knife
I have witnessed this first hand.
Haven't got a funky pizza wheel thing, therefore I use scissors. Much easier.
what's the point. just like ice cream scoops scoop worse than a spoon does. what's the point
A pizza slicer with a decent diameter cutting disc is better than a knife cos it cuts downwards rather than the slidy knife action that rucks up the topping.
An ice cream scoop is better than a spoon cos it's sturdy enough to hack into the tub and shaped so that you get a nice ball shape rather than thin sheared off flakes or randomly hacked out chunks.
you middle class bell ends.
you sick fuck
my dad used to work 18 hour down't mine, and we could only afford sainsbury's basics pizza.
used to use mam's wilkinson's multi-purpose scissors n'all
Pizza won't be pizza
When it reads this thread
That's been glowing in the oven at the edge of the town
Pizza won't be pizza, no, the pizza won't be pizza when it reads this thread Won't you show me what begins at the edge of town?
Scissors are the cutters? No no no
^this'er is a crook, woah aye oh
Mehodor is a crook, ohh aye oh
Jamie need to be taken down a peg
Something about sandwiches
Windy windy windy windy windy
what's the big deal?
But they blow hard at pizza. They don't even always reserve one pair of scissors just for pizza. Gross.
Rolling blades ftw.
my boyfriend insists on eating almost everything with a knife and fork. Basically anything that's not a regular sandwich, he thinks it requires cutlery--even burgers, though he always eats them the normal way, he states they should really be eaten with knife and fork. He has made me eat fries and onion rings and such with a knife and fork before, to my public humiliation. But he cuts pizza with scissors. Total loony.
I can confirm that scissors are the most efficient, quickest and cleanest way of cutting a pizza.
Pizza's don't need their own bespoke cutting device. Pizza wheels bunch up all of the topping into the middle anyway, making eating a pizza significantly less pleasant.
Scissors - yes.
/Maybe/, if you have one with a shitty small cutting wheel and/or are monumentally cack handed. A proper pizza cutter with a decent size wheel will not.
"The use of a pizza cutter instead of a standard knife avoids the dislodging of loose toppings through the back-and-forth motion of the blade typical of a knife. Pizza cutters press their blade down vertically instead."
No-one's mentioned the mezzaluna half-moon knife yet.
When I moved into my house I noticed I had some scissors. But, I didn't have a pizza wheel. Then... I made a pizza! Trouble ahoy, I thought... but, no. I just used the scissors. The scissors which I use for multiple other kitchen tasks. It worked. Therefore - no need to fork out money on a decent pizza wheel.
My life, to this day, remains unchanged.
There are people on here who wipe standing up for god's sake.
you'd get hot cheese and tomato sauce stuck up your crack.
or are actually shocked and suprised that people do this?
what's yer problem? why is it so bad to use scissors?
It's just the sort of thing that a weird hermit would do. It's a bit like eating food straight out of the pan, just... not right.
If you use a pizza wheel then you have to use a chopping board as well = more washing up.
Stick the pizza on a plate, pair of kitchen scissors, cut it into slices, bish bash bosh.
using a pizza wheel does not require a chopping board.
you just 'wheel it' on the plate. I know, I've been there, I've done it.
And it's really awkward if your pizza is slightly too large for the plate or if the plate isn't completely flat. You don't have any of these worries with scissors. None whatsoever.
so if the crust in question is on the edge of a plate, it makes the slicing x10 more difficult.
You just can't get enough purchase without the plate being all up in your face.
don't you have to pick up the pizza to cut it, it seems so unwieldy.
Raise the crust slightly, place the edge of the pizza betwixt the blades, cut.
...which sends PAIN through my skull.
Better than cutting it with a knife or using one of those rubbish pizza cutters.
Now, if she used garden shears- that would fucking impress me.
Bit wide floppy pizzas are one of them. Pick it up, snip with a pair of decent scissors and you are done. No bits still stuck to each other (and pulling the toppings off each other). Just make sure you rinse the scissors straight away otherwise getting the cheese off is a bitch.
All first world problems these really. Especially getting angry at people who solve minor problems with a mildly annoying solution.
all the pizzas were cut with scissors, pretty much
all the pizzas were amazing
