If you are making deep dish pizza, you will appreciate a pizza pan gripper. This tool is like a pair of special pliers, allowing you to grab onto the edge of the pan. You should look for grippers that are sturdy and able to handle a heavy pan. A pizza pan gripper allows you to remove the pan from the oven and place it onto your work surface, without getting burned in the process. You can then use it to hold your pan securely in place while you cut your pizza.
