Recipe for a fiery Italian Pizza Diavola with spicy salami and chillies. The Diavola is also known under the name Diavolo. The name means "devil pizza".

Pizza Diavola

 275 g Pizza dough
 65 g Mozzarella
 Tomato sauce
 Hot and spicy salami
 Chili peppers to taste
 Fresh basil or Italian herbs
 Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan)
 Pickled hot peppers
 Italian olive oil

Form the dough with your hands into a round pizza. Instructions for a homemade dough can be found here: Italian pizza dough. Alternatively, a store-bought dough can be used, but this does not taste as good as homemade dough.


Spread the dough evenly with a few tablespoons of homemade tomato sauce. Leave about 1 inch at the edge.


Peel the garlic and finely chop it. Cut the chili peppers into thin rings. Alternatively, chilli flakes or chilli powder can be used for the devil pizza.


Slice the mozzarella with a sharp knife into pieces.


Add the chopped garlic, chili peppers and mozzarella slices to the pizza. For a spicy taste you can add some Parmigiano Reggiano (Italian Parmesan cheese).


Slice hot Italian salami into thin slices and spread on the devil pizza.

Diavola Ingredients


Depending on your taste, pickled peppers and onions cut into rings can be used as a additional topping.


Season with Italian herbs or fresh basil.


Preheat the oven to the highest possible temperature available. Depending on the baking temperature, the Pizza Diavola takes 5 to 10 minutes to finish baking. A detailed guide for baking the perfect pizza in your oven at home can be found here: baking pizza at home.


Slice into pieces and serve hot.
