Spicy Pepper Pizza

For this pizza, I used a mix of fresh and canned peppers. You can really use any kind of pepper you like or whatever your grocery store has, which makes this recipe even better. There was a "locally grown" section at Wegmans this past week, and the sweet Italian peppers looked so good, I had to find something to use them in. And, while browsing the extensive pepper section, {Wegmans is truly amazing!} I found the hot cherry peppers. Not only was the pepper mixture spicy and delicious, the colors were absolutely beautiful! What types of peppers would you add to this pizza?!

Thanks for reading and happy cooking!

Spicy Pepper Pizza

1 sweet Italian pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
6 ounce jar hot cherry peppers, drained & rinsed
8 ounce jar banana peppers, drained & rinsed
1 14 ounce jar chunky pizza sauce
1 store-bought pizza dough
1 fresh mozzarella ball, thinly sliced
3-4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Slice the red and green bell peppers and the sweet Italian pepper in slices. In a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add all the peppers and season with a little salt. Sauté until soft, about 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, work the pizza dough onto a sheet or pizza pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Spread a layer of the pizza sauce on the dough. Evenly space mozzarella slices on top of the sauce. Once peppers are soft, disperse the peppers across the pizza to cover. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. Cook about 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
