My uncle had a bumper crop of tomatoes and hot banana peppers this year and decided to send'em all on up to New York from Pennsylvania via my-sister-express. What do you do with a peck of peppers? Why, you pickle'em of course.
'pickled peppers' on Serious Eats
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 their cardboard cutout corner in Papa John's pizza boxes. So what do you say, way or no way?
