Banana Pepper Pepperoni Pizza — mounds of cheese, banana pepper rings, and pepperoni baked on homemade crust and sauce.
One of my favorite pizza combinations is banana peppers and pepperoni. I love that this Banana Pepper Pepperoni Pizza is spicy from the pepperoni and a little briny from the banana peppers. I sometimes switch it up and use pickled jalapeños. Either way, the spicy briny topping combo is simply the best.
Banana pepper pepperoni pizza ingredients
Pizza dough- Try these pizza ideas with a homemade New York-Style Pizza Crust.
Pizza sauce- I also suggest a 5-Minute Pantry Pizza Sauce that’s ready in 5 minutes.
Pepperoni slices- The pepperoni can be exchanged for a spicy or milder sausage.
Banana pepper rings- You can easily change the peppers to your preference; I also like pickled jalapeno.
Red pepper flakes

Nothing makes a fun family night greater than fresh piping hot personal pizzas with your favorite toppings. I usually set out a bunch if toppings and let everyone make their own pie. Some offering combination ideas:
- Ham, green peppers,
- Cooked bacon, black olives, and mushrooms

- Hard salami, red onion, spinach
- Grilled chicken, broccoli, whipped ricotta
Pepperoni pizza instructions
Start by topping the rolled pizza crust with sauce, followed by the grated mozzarella cheese.
Next, layer pepperoni and banana peppers. Finally, bake at 4750° in a preheated oven for 11-13 minutes. Sprinkle a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes or Homemade Pizza Seasoning.
I like to make a BYO Italian Chopped Salad Bar for family pizza night. It offers variety for everyone—including the little ones and particular eaters.
