Reaper Pizza Sauce

We all like a little spice on our pizza, that’s why we add pepper flakes. Why not put the spice IN the pizza? In the sauce, to be specific. Use on a regular pizza, or serve on Ritz crackers with cheese and pepperoni for a snack that bites back.


  • 15 oz. tomato sauce (can)
  • 1 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 2 Carolina Reapers (crushed or chopped)
  • 1 tbsp. chopped onion
  • 1 large clove garlic (chopped or pressed)
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • Worcestershire sauce

  • Add tomato sauce, oregano, Italian seasoning, and sugar, and simmer 5 minutes.
  • Strain through a fine mesh-strainer.
  • Add tomato paste and mix well.
