Pepperoncini and Onion Vegetarian Pizza

This Pepperoncini and Onion Pizza is one of my absolute favorites that I make nearly every week. It's a simple red sauce pizza topped with melty mozzarella cheese, sharp onions, bright and brine-y pepperoncini, and delicious garlic. It's a unique pizza topping pairing that you'll wish you tried sooner!

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 ball pizza dough
  • ¾ cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ small red onion thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup pepperoncini chopped
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425℉
  • On a floured surface roll out your dough to about 12" all around. If it's not a perfect circle that's completely fine. Transfer it to your baking sheet (lined with parchment) or pizza stone and brush the olive oil from crust to crust.
  • Evenly spread the tomato sauce leaving ½" of the crust bare around the edges.
  • Evenly sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce. Then follow with the onions, pepperoncini, and garlic.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted, bubbly, and lightly golden brown.
  • Top the finished pizza with the parmesan and (optional) fresh oregano.
