    So I'm standing in bookkeeper's office signing some things, or whatever is it that I do, which isn't very much. Anyway, that part of it is irrelevant. She's in the middle of placing an online order for a pizza, for lunch. That part of it is relevant.

    "What the hell is clean cut?"

    "Huh?"

    "Yeah I'm ordering a pizza. And there is a round cut, a square cut, and a clean cut. What is that?"

    "Hah. It just means they use a clean pizza cutter." I of course was joking. I'm thinking that maybe it is something more in line with shaving the crust off, sort of like what some people do with sandwiches.

    Enter admin in to the office to pick up some checks or invoices or something like that but whatever it was, is completely irrelevant. It's not like she was there to bring me a beer. She Googles 'clean cut' and 'pizza' on her telephone. "Oh guess what, you were right! It means they clean the cutter before using it on the pizza!"

    Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    I guess the rationale is to accommodate vegan or religious requirements, but if the attempt is to render a hummus pizza topped with feta and ground lamb kosher or halal, I'm sure there are twenty ways until Sunday to go south on that in a pizza assembling environment without being worried about the slicing implement.

    Who woulda thunk.

    Many years ago when I was working at a pizza joint, it was not unusual for a customer to ask for a clean cutter due to food allergies. I was more than happy to oblige.

    I flew many a pizza to remote locations. I once flew 30 pizzas to a remote location on the north slope and landed on the road next to the camp site. When I say road, it was two ruts in the tundra where they drive between the worksite and the camp. Those guys really wanted pizza.. :yesnod: :lol:

    And no it is not free if it takes more than 30 minutes to deliver...

    I'm just guessing here...but maybe it just means fully cut....cut clean through as it where....

    Ever notice how you always have to tear it juts a bit to separate the pieces? I theorize that they do this so the pizza stays together in transport. This is soemthing that has always geniuniely irked the germaphobe in me....

    I'll have to look for that option the next time I order....

    Lol...ahhh good memories.
    I was hired to fly chinese food to a gold mine once. It was 6 guys, and I took up 8 dinners for 6, so they had lots of food.
    Those same guys once had me fly up a small part no bigger than your hand, so to make it worthwhile also had me bring them 12 cases of beer.

    When I delivered for Domino’s, they didn’t have “Canadian bacon”, they had “ham”. And they didn’t have “black olives”, they had “ripe olives”.

    Thanks to this thread, I've now been inspired to take my pizza cutter and do a clean circular slice of all of the crusts in one swift motion. I no longer will have to eat my kid's cold nibbled-on crust remnant off his plate when I can eat a nice hot crust right out of the box. To heck with your crust pizza slice handle, crusts are the OG bread sticks and will now be consumed accordingly.

    I went to a pizza joint in Hawaii that called their ham and pineapple pie a “mainland special”

    I think you are giving them too much credit. If it isn't cut through, its probably because they didn't take the time to do it. I have trouble doing it the first try at home myself. It usually requires more than one pass in areas to get a complete cut.

    Once the pizza is in the box, the wheel cutter can’t get all the way to the edge of the crust, except on the box diagonals where there is room for cutter overrun.

    I live in a fairly highly populated county in a fairly highly populated state and can not get any type of food delivered to my neighborhood. For a few years dominos would, but when gas went up they stopped.

    Sure sign of a rookie. It takes a slight twist at the end of the cut to separate the 2 pieces...even when cutting in the box.

    one of you should open a pizza cutter business in Austria. They don't cut the pizza at all, its madness.

    I wonder at the time, but not my place to say anything.
    They were good customers, and I flew for them often. A small nugget was often given to me as a tip also.

    I ordered a pizza in a place in London one night. Then I had to ask them for a knife to cut the thing. No idea how the hell they expected me to eat it.

    I'm not proud of that particular time in my life, but there was one time when I would take a Tortino's frozen pizza, nuke it, roll it up like it was a burrito and eat it. Let's just say it was a low point.

    No pizza? No calzones?

    That's inhumane!

    Can you at least get good chicken wings?

    Actually I had just copied and pasted this information into a PM for someone else asking where I live.
    Seconds difference in drive time to either Vanderhoof, or Fort St. James.
    While traveling Hwy 27, my gravel road turns off, and its then just 6 or 7 minutes on gravel.

    I’d have had to roll it like @Sac Arrow. Sucker was flimsy as hell in the middle. I’m generally opposed to using a knife & fork for pizza but for this one I had to make an exception. The staff were all Italian too, but maybe they were cooking pizza n London because they got run out of Italy. I dunno.
