Pizza toppings are endless, but when it comes to seasonings, you’re usually limited to oregano, parmesan, and chili flakes. Red chili flakes.
Red chili flakes add some heat and a bit of flavor, but too much familiarity on your taste buds.
At your next pizza party – birthdays, BBQs, and for the upcoming football season – surprise your guests with a few different chili flakes to try like Chipotle Chili Flakes, Urfa Chili Flakes, and Aleppo Chili Flakes.
Spicy, smoky, and intensely appetizing, our Chipotle Chili Flakes have become the standard pizza seasoning in our house. The aroma alone will make your stomach growl.
It’s perfect for transforming a simple pizza like cheese, margherita, or a cherry tomato & basil. And the strong flavor pairs well with extra meaty pizzas, especially BBQ chicken pizzas.
For a more subtle, versatile chili flake that complements without overpowering the flavor of the pizza, try our Aleppo Chili Flakes and Urfa Chili Flakes – from the eastern region of the Mediterranean.
Aleppo Chili Flakes have an enticing red color, and a mildly-spicy kick, with fruity, salty, vinegary notes. And the Urfa Chili Flakes have a striking purplish-black hue that alludes to its aromatic notes of chocolate, coffee, and raisin.
We love to use them in combination – dry or mixed with olive oil – to season veggie pizzas like in this Mediterranean–style pizza with kalamata olives, fresh mizuna leaves, and crumbled feta cheese.
Both the Aleppo & Urfa Chili Flakes are seedless, and mildly spicy, which makes them fun for the whole party – including kids who are just starting to experience new flavors – to enjoy sprinkling onto their favorite pizza slices.
So the next time you’re hosting a pizza party, and someone asks where the chili flakes are, intrigue them by asking in return, “Which type?”
