Poll: Pickled Peppers, Way or No Way?


Pizza vox populi.

Pickled peppers on pizza can be a revelation for the pepper loving pie eater. I only started working them into my rotation fairly recently (within the last two years), and let me tell you, the vinegar-y heat of a pickled hot cherry pepper when paired with a nice Italian sausage is pretty unbeatable. But I can remember a time when, in my mind, pickled peppers had no place on a pizza. They were better relegated to the cardboard cutout corners in Papa John's pizza boxes. So what do you say, way or no way?
