Get the recipe for the spicy, yet sweet pizza from Pizza Ponte.
This year during Flavors of Florida in Disney Springs, Pizza Ponte offered a trendy sweet and spicy pizza. Its Pizza Diavola featured Calabrese salami, chili peppers, and Orlando petal honey to balance it out. So, whether you couldn’t try the pizza at Flavors of Florida or simply loved it so much that you’ve been craving it ever since, give this at-home recipe a try to recreate the delicious pizza yourself.
Yields 1 pizza
Store-bought pizza crust, or pizza dough
Hot cherry peppers, or another spicy pepper
If making homemade, prepare the pizza dough or remove one pizza crust from the package.
Assemble the pizza by adding as much pizza sauce, mozzarella, salami, and peppers as you desire.
Bake according to package instructions, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 15 minutes.
Drizzle with honey, slice, and enjoy.
Making pizzas at home doesn’t get easier—especially when you use store-bought everything. I made my pizza on naan bread so I didn’t have to do any crust prep, then topped it with as much of the toppings as my heart desired. I used hot cherry peppers, and those things were spicy, so if you don’t want that much heat, you could use hot banana peppers or fire-roasted red peppers too. Honey on pizza is such a viral ingredient right now, but I didn’t think it added too much, so I’d love to try the pizza with hot honey instead to give it more of a sweet-and-spicy flavor.
