The first patent for a pizza cutter was filed in 1892 by David S. Morgan, an American inventor from Chicago. His design featured a hand crank and circular saw blade that would cut through pizzas with ease. However, this design was never intended to cut pizzas as it required two hands to operate and could not be easily cleaned or stored.
Instead, it was meant to be used as a wood-cutting tool on farms. It wasn’t until 1928 when another man named Antonio Pasin created his version of the pizza cutter, which included all of the features we know today, such as one-handed operation, easy cleaning, and storage capabilities. This is why he is often referred to as “the father of the modern-day pizza cutter.
You may be wondering why someone would need a special tool just for cutting up dough into pieces before baking it. Well, there are several reasons why someone might have come up with this idea, including making sure that each piece was an equal size or avoiding having too many small pieces instead of larger ones after dividing them out by hand.
There were also issues like avoiding getting burned while using knives or other utensils to cut through the hot dough, resulting in burns if not done carefully enough. These problems led Carl A Frahm to create his cake cutter invention in 1922, later known as the modern-day pizza cutter. Nowadays, they can be found everywhere, online and offline. Even Amazon carries them.
