Let’s say that despite your best efforts, you’re still coming up empty-handed on your search for the perfect holiday gift. You didn’t have enough patience for Black Friday deals (who does?) and you’re tired of the usual categories like electronics, toys, or worse… clothing. But there’s something that nearly everyone loves, and since this is a pizza blog, I think you can see what I’m getting at. We’ve rounded up three pizza-centric gifts for any pizza lover (i.e., anyone!) on your holiday list.
Pizza: From Every Day to Gourmet is our pizza cookbook filled with over 30 delicious pizza combinations guaranteed to suit any pizza fan. The book also contains all the basics you need to know about dough handling, sauce preparation, cooking technique, and equipment. The book comes with a slicer and a server so that once your cook has made their homemade pie, they can share it with their eager audience! Armed with both the knowledge and proper tools, anyone can make fantastic pizzeria quality pizza in the comfort of their own home.
Pizza cones are perhaps one of the most creative ways to present pizza yet. You’ve probably seen a calzone before, maybe a stromboli or even a double decker pizza, but the pizza cone is truly a thing of wonder. It’s a golden cone of crispy, fluffy pizza crust filled with tangy tomato sauce and whatever special toppings tickle your fancy. Our pizza cone set includes a dough-cutting template, two baking molds, dough crimper, and two spiral stands to serve with. We’ve even included a dough recipe that will give you enough to make two cones at a time.
While pizza stones do a fantastic job of baking pizzas in your home oven, the pizza steel performs even better. The pizza steel can be used to reach temperatures previously hard to hit in your home oven, which in turn produces a faster-baking pizza. Faster pizza means less time preparing dinner, and more time enjoying it! Pizza steels also make a great addition for anyone who owns a pizza stone, as they can be placed on the rack above to radiate extra heat down on the top of your pie. This gives you a better browning on the top of the pizza, a common problem with home ovens in regards to baking this Italian treat.
With Christmas right around the corner, why not consider giving the gift that everyone can appreciate? You might just end up a holiday hero by giving one of the coolest gifts under the Christmas tree. It’s been said “It is better to give than to receive” and in this case the saying comes around full circle – just imagine eating some fresh home-made pizza from the pizzaiolo in your life!
