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.
