Happy Sunday! That means it's time for pizza!
For a few years now, Sundays have meant pizza day. For a time, I was making a unique pizza every single week! Sometimes to relate to where we were traveling. Sometimes because of a particular ingredients. Maybe there's a different style I wanted to try making. Sometimes just being weird with it (looking at you cereal pizza). I've slowed down on making unique things, and Sundays have turned into "just make everyone's favorite."
Jacob however started bringing his own red pepper flakes that he was sent one year from his friend Cory. Now, I have a shaker of red pepper flakes that I bought from Walmart for $1.44. Aren't you being a little pretentious bringing over this new bottle of pepper flakes when I have some already?
Well... then I tasted them. Ooh, those are a lot better! Do they make others?
So, a few weeks later, Jacob showed up with 3 different Flat Iron Pepper Company flavors!
Joe - I got a pepper flake stuck up in my gums. At first I didn't realize it, but after a little bit it started to burn! Oof! Pull that piece out of there!
Jacob - First is Four Pepper Blend, Hatch Valley Green, then Dark and Smoky. But I wouldn't turn any of them down.
Joe - I like the Dark and Smoky, then Four Pepper Blend, and Hatch Valley Green.
Alli - Why don't you try all three of them on one?
Bold of you to say when you're not tasting any of these.
All of these peppers were really tasty! I've put enough on my pizza that I'm slightly sweating, but my taste buds are happy.
Looking at the FlatIronPepper.com website, there's 12 different flavors of peppers you can try! The Sweet Heat ($8.45) looks like it could be tasty. Maybe even the Smoke Show ($13.95) with it's 450k scoville heat. I'd try, but not sure I'd like the I Can't Feel My Face ($19.95) and the 750k scoville burn. I would love a sampler box to try a small quantity of everything, but they only have small packets of these top 3.
Still, if you're looking to kick up your pizza flavor, you can't go wrong with these. They are a delicious addition to your pizza!
