Piquant Four Seasons Pizza

A baked pizza next to slices of pizza.
Four seasons pizza is my favorite pizza. This is an internationally known Italian pizza (Pizza Quattro Stagione). The four toppings represent the four seasons of the year, dividing the pizza into 4 equal quarters. Several fillings in one pizza, in my opinion this is a brilliant idea! But since I like spicy food, so I decided to try making this pizza with hot peppers.

A baked pizza next to slices of pizza.Four seasons pizza is my favorite pizza. This is an internationally known Italian pizza (Pizza Quattro Stagione). The four toppings represent the four seasons of the year, dividing the pizza into 4 equal quarters. Several fillings in one pizza, in my opinion this is a brilliant idea! But since I like spicy food, so I decided to try making this pizza with hot peppers.

I used a recipe for making real Italian pizza Four Seasons, from making the dough to the filling. In my recipe, the bell pepper represents spring, tomatoes represent summer, mushrooms represent autumn and the salami with olives represent winter. I was delighted with the result. This recipe is also suitable for those who do not like spicy food: just don't add hot peppers to the filling.
