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 mins
Cook Time 2 mins
Proof 1 d
Servings 1 14″ Pizzas


  • Outdoor pizza oven
  • Pizza peel


  • 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


  • 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.


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.
