What is more Italian than pizza and basil? While similar in flavor to the classic Jalapeno pepper, the Serrano pepper’s edge in heat will satisfy any spicy food fanatic and the fresh and fragrant basil flavor brings out a whole new experience that you wish you would have discovered sooner.
Heat Level: Extremely Hot
If you love garlic and you love heat, this one is a no-brainer. You get the undeniable sting of heat from the scorpion peppers with a big punch of garlic flavor. Use a little, or a lot. It doesn’t matter, this goes great with any toppings. Farley Farms may be one of the most underrated hot sauce brands out there, but this one absolutely deserves a place on this list.
Flavor: Slightly Smoky, Creamy
Heat Level: Medium
You might remember this hot sauce from the hit YouTube series Hot Ones. Chipotle and Orange Habanero peppers with a garlicky blend and an ever-so light hint of sweetness. This chipotle flavor doesn’t overpower the habanero – they are perfectly balanced and with a nice, medium heat. The most versatile of the hot sauces on this list – you can use it on any style of pizza.
Flavor: Prickly Pear, Hibiscus
Heat Level: Hot
This one’s the most surprising of the hot sauces on our list, but we promise you’lI love it – here’s why. You get a mix of prickly pear nectar and hibiscus flower that gives you the sweet and floral notes. Then, you’ll get the “prick” from the ghost peppers. This combination adds a unique, complex flavor that is sure to impress your hot sauce loving friends the next time it’s pizza night.
Heat Level: Very Hot
To no surprise, Karma Sauce hit it out of the park with this one. Three distinct sensations upon entering your mouth. First, the sweetness from the butternut squash, orange peel, and honey. Next, the smokey flavor (without overpowering). Lastly, the heat creeps in. You think it’ll take you over the edge, but it doesn’t.
Heat Level: Mild
We’re typically the type that hates sayings like “OMG this hot sauce is so great you can drink it!” Well, we might have found an exception.
