Pizza Herb and Lettuce Cutter

Your pizza cutter is more than a unitasker in the kitchen! Put it to good use to help chop fresh herbs — minus the bruising.


To cut fresh, leafy herbs such as cilantro and parsley, use a pizza wheel rather than a knife—just run the wheel over the washed leaves in multiple directions. The wheel also prevents bruising the leaves, a common problem when mincing with a knife.

A pizza cutter works well for shredding romaine lettuce for salads and sandwiches.
