Hot and Spicy Hungarian Peppers for your White Pizza

This is my husbands favorite of all pizza toppings. It is hot and packed with flavor but simple to make. I am pretty sure that you can't mess this up. Go for it!

When shopping for Hungarian Peppers you will want to buy them full and without blemish. I buy the large ones and they can't be wrinkled.

Here is what you will need for this whatever you want to call it. I haven't decided on a name yet. I know it's good on toast or pizza.

You will need table salt, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, fresh garlic, an empty jar, and don't forget the peppers.

I usually will make a batch using just a pound or a little more of peppers.

Wash the peppers.

Slice the peppers.

Wear gloves and DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE! HOT HOT HOT!! Wash hands immediately.

Place peppers in a stainless steel bowl and cover with salt.

Don't be shy but don't over do it.

The salt is to draw the liquid out of the peppers. Let sit out over night.

Next day drain peppers. (do not rinse)


Place peppers on a baking sheet. (single layer)

Place sheet in 250 degree oven for drying out the peppers.

Leave MAYBE 30 minutes.

After 20 minutes you will want to keep an eye on them.

Remove from oven (obviously) and put peppers in clean jar.

Add fresh, diced garlic cloves. 6 or so.

Add the Extra Virgin Olive Oil just until it reaches the top of the peppers and garlic.

Mix and seal.

Store in the fridge.

  You can purchase this Olive Oil on Amazon!



This will go fast. You will love it.

Enjoy this on Ciabatta toast, pizza or with cereal. never know.

Have fun and let your taste buds dance!
