Pepperoni jalepeno pizza recipe

Pepperoni and Pickled Jalapeno Pizza

Crank up the heat on a classic pepperoni with some pickled jalapenos. While fresh jalapenos provide an excellent crunch, the pickled peppers bring an added kick that matches well with pepperoni.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Proof: 1 day
Servings: 1 14″ Pizzas

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 330 g Neapolitan pizza dough
  • 3-4 oz basic pizza sauce A homemade sauce from a can of high-quality San Marzano whole tomatoes is really simple; just puree and add salt!
  • 6 oz shredded whole milk mozzarella If using pre-shredded cheese, RINSE the cornstarch off and dry before using. This will create a much better cheese melt.
  • 1 pinch Parmigiano-Reggiano

Additional Toppings

  • Pepperoni
  • Pickled jalapeno sliced

Instructions

  • Flatten and stretch dough into 14" pies.
  • Prepare your pizza by ladling sauce onto stretched dough and then sprinkling Parmigiano-Reggiano. Starting from the outside and moving inward, spread a light even layer of mozzarella. Top with a layer of pepperoni and jalapenos (to taste).
  • Preheat your Ooni (or other outdoor pizza oven) for 30 minutes. The oven should reach near 900F in this time. Using a pizza peel, place pizza in oven and cook for 2 minutes (+/- 30 seconds depending on color) rotating as needed.
  • Remove pizza from oven and place on wire rack to cool for 2 minutes before slicing.

Notes

This is a Neapolitan recipe that uses 00 flour, so high heat is a must; home ovens are insufficient. Be sure to preheat an outdoor pizza oven to 900F before cooking. If you only have a home oven and pizza steel/stone, check out our NY Style recipe which works great with this.
