How to Sharpen a Pizza Cutter

If you've ever owned a pizza cutter, you know how quickly it can get dull. The circular shape and wheel-like design makes sharpening a pizza cutter seem more difficult than sharpening a regular knife. But it's really not much different. With a wet stone and a little effort, you can be carving up pizzas again in no time.

Step 1

Grip the wheel blade so it does not spin. You should wear protective gloves to do this.

Step 2

Dip the blade in water.

Step 3

Run the blade against the stone at a 45-degree angle.

Step 4

Dip the blade in water periodically to keep it wet.

Step 5

Rotate the blade slightly.

Step 6

Rub the blade against the stone again. Continue to wet the blade, turn and grind it against the stone until you have sharpened the circumference of the cutter.

Warning

  • Be careful when handling sharp objects.
