These are the top gifts that a pizza making cook or anyone who is a fan of making pizza should love to have on Christmas Day. All of these items are ones that I would recommend to any pizza making fan!
I've created a Pizza for Beginners YouTube playlist that gives some great tips to help your learning to cook pizza journey! Enjoy your Pizza Cooking!
1. OUTDOOR PIZZA OVEN
Top of the Christmas Pizza Gift list should be an Outdoor Pizza Oven. There are a number of pizza ovens to choose from and the so you'll need to choose the best fuel option to cook with. If your gift is for someone who loves cooking with real wood logs then the Ooni Pro or the Ooni Karu would be a suitable oven.
For the pizza cook who would prefer to use gas then these ovens would be a perfect choice as they are portable and both cook pizza really well with a propane gas bottle.
2. TURNING PEEL
To create that professional pizza the pizza cook will need to turn the pizza in the oven without touching it. With a small round peel, this is possible and easy to do. These peels are great for turning pizza in small to medium-sized pizza ovens.
3. BREAD-MAKING MACHINE
From my experience, bread-making machines make the best pizza dough. There are lots of brands to choose from. I personally use a Panasonic Bread Machine because it churns out consistently fantastic pizza dough.
Using soft-grain pizza flour will give the stretch to make the perfect pizza and to achieve that beautiful leoparding on the crust. The soft-grain flour should be finely milled and so choose flour that is milled at 00.
6. DOUGH PROOFING BOX
For the pizza dough to rise it will need to be bulk proofed. A big mixing bowl with an airtight lid is perfect for this job. The dough can stay in this container for 24 hours in a warm room.

7. PIZZA LAUNCH PEEL
This peel is for launching the pizza into the Pizza Oven. It should be able to slide off the peel easily for the cook. This peel isn't used to turn the pizza.
8. PIZZA TABLE
An outside pizza table supports your portable pizza oven when you are using it outside. Some have castors which help wheel the oven into place before use.
9. DOUGH PROOFING BOWLS
These proofing boxes can be used to store the pizza dough after the bulk proof. These hold the pizza dough balls.
10. PIZZA CUTTER
Every home that makes and eats pizza needs a pizza cutter. They come in all shapes and sizes but the sharper the wheel the easier the pizza will slice up!
These options are great for making pizza and will provide loads of pizza making fun at home!
