A fun way to cut your pizza

Sometimes my job is just too fun.  This project was to show a beautiful pizza with a cheese pull.  However, this pizza product had some challenges.   The product is designed to be cooked from a frozen state.  If you let it thaw, cut the pizza crust, and re-freeze, the crust doesn't perform as it is designed to.  The solution was to cut the slice out of the pizza crust while it was still frozen.  We tried to do it with a knife but the crust was so cold it would shatter.  The solution, power tools!  I got my trusty power saw out and started cutting.  Guess what, it worked like a charm, and it was a blast.  How often do you get to cut your pizza with a power saw?

Some were a little skeptical!  (:-)

No, I didn't cut my fingers off or cut a big gash in the countertop.

As you can see, we were able to make a great slice in the frozen pizza crust.  Let the pizza styling begin!
