A stone that gets super-hot for perfectly crispy crust
If you plan on making pizza at home, you need a pizza stone. Why use a stone instead of a baking sheet or pan? Stones absorb heat and transfer it evenly to your pizza dough, resulting in crunchy, chewy pizzeria-style pizza. To use the stone, place it in a cold oven and preheat to 500 degrees. Since the stone is made of the same material that lines furnaces, it can handle ultra-high temperatures. This Old Stone Oven pizza stone is Amazon’s top rated.

Scissors that both slice and serve in one snip
Kitchen Maestro literally reinvented the wheel with this clever contraption that’s one part scissor, one part spatula. To use, just slide the spatula under the pie and start cutting. It's how they serve slices in Italy, so you know it's legit.

A giant spatula to easily take your pizza out of the oven
Don't you dare pull your pizza from the oven using a standard-sized spatula. A peel is essentially a giant spatula designed to transfer pizza in and out of an oven in a way that preserves its delicate structure. Sprinkle with flour or cornmeal before use to allow your pizza to easily slide on and off. This Kitchen Supply model is Amazon's best seller for its sturdy construction and thin design that easily slips under pies.

A kit that transforms your grill to a trattoria
Grilling pizza is all the rage: On the grill, pizzas will cook quickly, evenly, and with great smoky flavor. That's because the grill reaches a much higher temperature than possible in a conventional oven, and much closer to that of a traditional pizza oven. With a kettle converter, pizza stone, pizza peel, and charcoal fence, this pizza kit allows you to transform the kettle grill you already own into a pizza oven in just minutes.

A perforated tray for evenly-cooked crust
Perforated trays are great because they allow hot air to circulate around the pizza for faster cook time and a consistently crispy crust. They're perfect for the pizza fanatic that doesn't want to spend a fortune on a pizza stone, yet still craves a perfectly even crust with a nice crunch.
