I could eat pizza every single day and not get sick of it. Let's be real, I practically do that currently. It's a staple in my life that I rely on to get me through the day.
While pizza in it's purest form is always A+, sometimes you have to spice it up. I did so recently with this pizza topped with red onions, garlic and pepperoncini. These flavors are certainly bold, but man are they good when combined.
This was inspired by a pizza that I get while at work during the day. While it tastes amazing, you probably wont have the best breath after eating this. Don't say I didn't warn you. But if you're like me, you won't care and won't regret it at all (just be prepared with some gum, lol).
P.S. If you're sensitive to spicy foods, go light on the pepperoncini.
Pizza with Onions, Garlic and Pepperoncini
- 1 ball store-bought pizza dough
- ¾ cup tomato sauce
- 1 cup fresh shredded mozzarella cheese
- ½ cup fresh grated pecorino romano cheese
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- ¼ red onion thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp pepperoncini
- Preheat oven to 425℉
- Roll out pizza dough - doesn't need to be a perfect circle - and place on a baking sheet
- Pour the tomato sauce on top of dough and spread evenly
- Top with a layer of the onions, garlic & pepperoncini
- Finish off by topping with the mozzarella and pecorino romano (putting the cheese on last will help the toppings stay put)
- Bake for about 15 minutes (or to directions of your dough & cheese is melted and bubbly).
