Side Piece Pizza’s Slice of the Week

Side Piece Pizza’s Slice of the Week

This Week’s Pizza Special Is Jalepeño Business 

Just because the kids are back in school doesn’t mean summer is over. The triple-digit forecast for Summerlin this week definitely suggests otherwise. At this point, trying to hide from the heat is exhausting, so in standard “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” fashion, Side Piece Pizza added a little kick to their classic pepperoni with some juicy jalepeños for this week’s pizza special. Since you’re already sweating, come in and grab a cold beverage and enjoy a saucy slice. 

Pepperoni and Jalepeño Pizza 

Date: August 28, 2022, until supplies last

Style: New York style 

Size: Slice, 14” inch, or 22” pie

Spice Level: 5.8

Fresh Ingredients: Yes

Beverage: Drink plenty of water *before* eating–avoid during and immediately after. If you’re not used to the spice, have some milk or syrupy soda on hand. 

Why It Slaps: Pepperoni is already the most popular type of pizza and adding the jalapeños to it gives it some zing and zest. There’s already a little heat in pepperoni, so the jalepeños and juice accentuate the flavor and give it some pop. Jalepeños also have health benefits: they’re high in Vitamin C, B6, and fiber. Since B6 is a great energy-inducing vitamin, both the heat from the peppers and their nutrients will give you a little extra pep in your step. 

Review: “I’m glad I ordered this on a Monday because it honestly kind of slapped me awake a bit. I needed that. If coffee isn’t cutting it for you, then have some of this.”
