Homemade Hot Giardiniera Pizza

A couple of days ago I made a whole bunch of hot giardiniera for some Italian beef and sausage sandwiches that was so excellent that I made a Giardiniera Pizza the very next day. If you like spicy food, this is the meal for you. I couldn’t resist topping a tasty pizza with all these marinated fresh vegetables that took days to make.

Yes I know a few days are along time to wait, but believe me it’s worth it. You need to let the flavor of the garlic, peppers and vegetables mix together. You could just open a jar of giardiniera and top the pizza dough instead of waiting but it wouldn’t be the same as making you own. Besides you can always make a large batch and give some away to your friends and neighbors to delight in.

For those of you not familiar with giardiniera, it all started in a small deli in Chicago around 1920 where Nick Pasquini started serving the condiment to accompany his sandwiches. Giardiniera literally mean “from the garden” and if you have a large enough garden for all the ingredients your doing pretty excellent. This is certainly a vegetarians dream.

The recipe below is what I use, but a number of vegetables can also be added including zucchini, asparagus capers, etc.. I reckon I got most of them covered in my recipe. Like I said the simplest part is making the giardiniera and the toughest part is waiting for it to marinate in the fridge. And don’t forget after the pizza it’s time for the beef and sausage sandwiches. Delight in! Mangia Italiano!
