Sopressata Pizza

Obviously I have been in a pizza mood: Butternut Squash Pizza, Paleo Pizza with Mushrooms and Chicken, and now Sopressata Pizza!

This was a good one, for sure. It’s got a little kick with some hot peppers and hot sopressata. I love hot and spicy, so this was right up my alley.



1 pizza crust (again, try Primal Cravings for a fantatic paleo pizza crust!!)

1-2 tbsp hot pepper spread

marinara sauce to taste

1/4 pound hot sopressata, sliced

shredded mozzarella cheese



While the pizza crust is baking, get the hot pepper spread ready. You could either purchase it from the store, or do what I did: mix 1 finely chopped jalapeno pepper, 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, a dash of salt, and 1 tablespoon olive oil together. Spread on the cooked pizza crust. Then, spread marinara sauce to taste on top, to taste. Layer the sopressata in a circular pattern, covering the whole pizza crust. Finally, sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top. Put the pizza back in the over for about 8 minutes and then under the broiler for another 2 minutes.

Serve with a side salad, drizzled with a simple dressing of balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and enjoy!
