Homemade Pepperoni Pizza Recipe

This homemade pepperoni pizza recipe is one of the most popular recipes on our website. We believe it is the simple things that count and we keep things plain and simple.

There is no secret to this homemade pepperoni pizza recipe. The pizza tastes great simply because we keep the ingredients to the basics. Pepperoni in itself is one of the best-tasting sausages available. Pepperoni is an American variety of spicy salami made from cured pork and beef seasoned with paprika or other chili pepper.

Thinly sliced pepperoni is one of the most popular pizza toppings in American pizzas and understandably so. Pepperoni is characteristically soft, slightly smoky, and by far our favorite pizza topping.

This pepperoni pizza recipe is perfect for days when you have friends or family over and run out of ideas for something to prepare. It is a great ice breaker and can be enjoyed by young and old. Children are particularly fond of our pepperoni pizza.

There are many pepperoni pizza recipe ideas floating around, I believe the reason why our recipe works so well is because we stick to only the basics, mozarella cheese, garlic, and thinly sliced pepperoni. There are others who try and be fancy. Pepperoni is too delicious to be spoiled by other flavors. Keep it simple.
