Four Cheese Pepperoni Pizza

/// January 18th, 2014

All I want in my life right now is pizza. This pizza. On automatic replay. Over and over and over again.

Four Cheese Pepperoni Pizza Warning: Once you’ve experienced this giant pizza decked out in four cheeses and spicy dots of pepperoni… you’ll be just as reeled in!!! Helplessly hooked to its cheesy charms.

And I mean… really, who can blame you? No pizza judgement here! Never.

Four Cheese Pepperoni Pizza Crunchy golden crust, gooey melted cheese (x4), and chewy pops of pepperoni… it’s the perfect food! All you need is a few great people to join you around this pie (and bring the wine!), and you’re set for one amazing pizza party. We drank this wine with our slices, and really loved the combo.

Four Cheese Pepperoni Pizza I got a little cutesy with my paring knife and carved the pepperoni rounds into tiny hearts, but you can totally use regular round slices, vegetarian pepperoni, or leave it off wholly! Up to you 😉

Oh, and if you have a mini heart cookie cutter, I think that would definitely work, too. I don’t know why I’m just thinking of that now. Doh!

Four Cheese Pepperoni Pizza The four cheeses are mozzarella, Locatelli, Monterey Jack, and gorgonzola, and you guys, they are such a winning combination! They all have very distinct bold flavors that – when melted together – just work. And they work well!


So well in fact, you may find you and your significant other polished off the whole pie in one sitting…

Four Cheese Pepperoni Pizza Whhhaaaaaat? It happens 😉

Happy weekend! xo
