Roasted peppers, spicy sausage, and chile oil are a classic manly-man pizza combo. Throwing it all on the grill not only ups the dude factor, but also gives this pizza an unparalleled crunchy crust. Read more about grilling pizza.
Game plan: Making your own chile oil is easy, and the oil lasts for a week or so covered at room temperature. If you leave the chile flakes in the oil, the heat will continue to increase as the oil sits.
The sausage can be cooked and crumbled up to 1 day in advance. Keep it refrigerated in a covered container until ready to use.
What to buy: While homemade tastes best, a lot of the components for this pizza can be bought at the store. Premade pizza dough, pizza sauce, and roasted red peppers are widely available and will bump this dish up to weeknight status.
