Whether you're making pizza from scratch or ordering from your favourite takeaway, a pizza cutter is a crucial piece of kit for creating perfect slices. Its purpose is to easily cut through toppings like pepperoni, chargrilled veg on a vegetarian pizza, or the thick crust of a deep-dish pie, without dragging and crumpling the dough and cheese. And with a choice of pizza cutters readily available, there’s no reason not to invest in one.


If you're serious about homemade pizza, you may also be interested in a pizza oven for a summer of al fresco entertaining – and the good news is, we've tested the top models available. Our guide to the best pizza accessories also covers everything else you need for the best results, including a dough scraper and pizza stone.

Best pizza cutters and scissors to buy in 2024

JosephJoseph disc easy-clean pizza cutter

JosephJoseph pizza cutter

Best overall pizza cutter

This mid-priced pizza cutter has a lot going for it. Designed in a compact wheel style, it has a little hole in the middle for you to put your finger through for extra grip. It’s comfortable to hold and looks good too, with a dark case contrasting with the red finger grip.

A cleverly designed silicone band across the bottom of the case makes for a secure and comfortable grip when you’re using it. When you’ve finished, you pull the blade out to wash it (by hand or in the dishwasher).

When clean, you pop the blade back in, unhook the silicone strip from its metal stud and twist it round to cover the blade, protecting it – and you – when in the drawer. Its compact size means it won’t take up too much space either.

Dunelm Handy Kitchen pizza scissors

Best pizza scissors

Sometimes snipping is easier than cutting, which is where these nifty pizza scissors come in handy. On the side of one scissor blade is a slice-shaped paddle, so as soon as you have cut your slice, you can scoop it straight onto a plate without having to touch it. It even spells out “pizza” (just in case you were in any doubt).

This is highly effective as well as quirky, but it would take up a lot of room in your cutlery drawer. Its shape means it won’t slide into a drawer easily. It will be a hit with kids, though, even if the large size of the scissors means small hands might need some help.

Brabantia pizza cutter

Brabantia pizza cutter

Best pizza cutter for design

The clever design helps avoid any risk of cutting your finger when you take it out of the drawer. The circular cutter fits neatly into its case so it can be stored without any sharp edges on display.

When you need to use it, simply open the case and lock the blade into position so it is peeking out of the top – the case then becomes the handle. There are easy to follow instructions on the box if you need a helping hand the first time you use it.

Coming completely apart makes this extremely easy to clean either by hand or in the dishwasher. The design also makes it very straightforward to transport should you fancy eating al fresco – you can slip it in your bag without fear it will snag on anything.

The pizza wheel is comfortable to hold, and with a blade made from hardened high-grade stainless steel, it comes with a confident five-year guarantee.

Oxo Good Grips 10cm pizza wheel for non-stick pans

OXO 4-in Non-Stick Pizza Wheel

Most versatile pizza cutter

Pizza wheels are designed to be sharp enough to cut through all that dough, cheese and topping. But a sharp blade can damage non-stick baking trays that you may be using to cook your pizza.

Oxo Good Grips has come up with a solution: its wheel has a plastic blade that's doesn't damage your pans and trays, or mark your pizza stone. It takes a little getting used to, but the blade is less sharp than others, which means it’s ideal for kids to use. The pizza cutter also has a chunky, comfortable handle and the added bonus of being dishwasher-safe.

DeliVita pizza cutter

Delevita pizza cutter

Best premium pizza cutter

Our review of the DeliVita pizza oven noted its bold look, and the brand's pizza cutter continues this theme. If you’re having a pizza party, you might want something that will help you cut the pizza with a flourish – and this will certainly be perfect for anyone wanting to show off a bit.

The cutter is made from stainless steel, and the handles are made from wood. You need to clean it with a damp cloth and it isn’t dishwasher-proof (even if you could fit it in a dishwasher, as it's very large). It comes with a blade protector and its own little bag to store it safely, too.

You’ll also need to keep this out of the way of young children, and the price means this one is strictly for pizza aficionados.

Big Green Egg, The Ultimate Pizza Cutter

Big Green Egg pizza wheel

Best pizza cutter for safety features

This wheel-shaped pizza cutter is comfy to hold, with a rubber-feel strip at the base, which also helps with the grip. It also comes with an integrated blade guard, which you can flick on or off to cover and uncover the blade. It means you can quickly pull the cover on and put it on the table, with no fear of little hands reaching out and cutting themselves.

The whole stainless steel blade can be removed for cleaning and you can wash it by hand or in the dishwasher. It's an effective cutter and a nice size to slip in a cutlery drawer, or a bag if taking it out for al fresco dining.

KitchenAid pizza wheel

KitchenAid pizza cutter

Most stylish pizza cutter

This cream-coloured model from KitchenAid is eye-catching and would be easy to spot in the kitchen drawer. The brand logo is prominent on the handle, too.

The ergonomic handle of this is comfortable to hold, and there is also a very solid finger-guard. Neither too light or too heavy, it's very well made, sturdy and robust. An added bonus is that the pizza cutter is dishwasher-safe.

Ooni pizza cutter

Ooni pizza cutter

Best pizza cutter for clean cutting

Whether you're wanting matching kit to go with your Ooni pizza oven, or want a larger wheel for cutting through loaded toppings, this stainless-steel slicer comes with a super-sharp blade for seamless cutting.

It's built with a wide easy-grip handle and comes with a five-year warranty when you register online. There are also two colours to choose from – black or green – which is ideal if you want to easily differentiate meat-free or gluten-free options.

Gozney pizza rocker

Gozney pizza rocker

Best pizza rocker

For pizza aficionados who want to invest in quality tools, a rocker – like this stainless steel blade from popular brand Gozney – allows for more precise pizza cutting.

Unlike a pizza wheel, which can sometimes cause toppings to slide off, this rocker relies on a downward cutting motion, so everything stays firmly in place. It has a 2mm-thick blade and wide wooden handle, and the design is elegant, too. What it's missing is a protective cover, which is a downside in terms of safety.

ProCook pizza cutter

ProCook pizza cutter

Best value pizza cutter

If you're looking for low-cost options but you still want bang for your buck, this tool from ProCook is a solid choice. It's built with a 10cm stainless-steel wheel and comfortable plastic handle, plus a protective hand guard that keeps your fingers safe while you slice.

As part of ProCook's utensils range, this cutter also comes with a one-year guarantee. You can put it in the dishwasher for easy cleaning, too.

How to choose the best pizza cutter

There’s a wide range of pizza cutters out there of different shapes, types, sizes and prices. To decide which one is best for you, it’s worth thinking about the following:

  • Size: If you have a small kitchen, you may prefer a smaller cutter – while those with more storage space have the flexibility to consider larger ones.
  • Safety: A pizza cutter is by definition sharp. You might want one with safety features like blade guides, which can help you avoid accidents – especially if you have kids.
  • Shape: Some pizza wheels are, well, wheel-shaped, while other cutters have longer handles. There are also pizza scissors. Which is most comfortable for you to hold?
  • Washing: Pizza wheels inevitably end up covered in melted cheese and tomato sauce, so easy cleaning is a must. Some come completely apart for cleaning, while others are dishwasher-proof.
  • Price: You can spend (almost) as little or as much as you want, so think carefully about your budget and whether you think the pizza cutter would be good value for money.
