Two Unique Pizza Sauce Recipes For People Who Love Spicy Foods

Blog

Making your own sauce is a great way to take your homemade pizzas to the next level. And you don't have to stick to a traditional red sauce, either. If you love spicy foods, here are two delicious, hot-and-spicy pizza sauce recipes to try.

Heirloom Tomato and Jalapeno Sauce

Made with sweet, yellow heirloom tomatoes and spicy jalapeno peppers, this sauce has an unusual color – but once you taste it, you'll be a big fan. It's lovely when used on veggie pizzas – its flavor more than makes up for the lack of meat.

Ingredients:

  • 6 large, yellow heirloom tomatoes
  • 2 jalapeno peppers
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ a medium onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, minced

Cut the tomatoes in half, and remove the cores. You can leave the seeds and skins in place. Chop the tomatoes roughly. Remove the tops from the jalapeno peppers. If you want the sauce a little less spicy, remove some of the pepper seeds too – much of the spice comes from the seeds.

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan, and add the onions to the pan. Saute until they are translucent. Add all of the remaining ingredients to the pan except for the basil. Bring the mixture to a simmer, and simmer for 1 hour. Use an immersion blender to puree the sauce until it is smooth. Then, bring it back to a simmer, and simmer for another 30 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat, and stir in the basil. Use as desired to top your pizzas.

Spicy White Sauce

This sauce will remind you of Alfredo – but with a kick! The sriracha adds a balanced spiciness that pairs well with mild pizza toppings like chicken and broccoli.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour, and stir to form an even mixture. Continue stirring and cooking this mixture over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Then, slowly pour in the milk while still stirring constantly.

Once the flour mixture is dissolved in the milk, add the garlic, sriracha and salt to the pan. Bring the mixture to a simmer, and simmer for 1 minute. Turn the heat down to low, and add the cheese. Continue heating and stirring just until the cheese is melted and a uniform sauce forms. Don't let the sauce boil. Remove from the heat, and use as desired on your pizzas.

If you don't have time to make your own pizza, call for a local pie, such as from Columbus Pizza & Donair pizza.
