This Hot Sauce Has Calabrian Fire

Hot sauce on pizza seems to be an American habit. One importer’s survey showed that 50 percent of American pizza-eaters used hot sauce. Not all the sauces that wind up on pizza are Italian, but there is a new contender, Casa Firelli, from Parma, Italy, designed for pizza. Like other Italian hot sauces, it’s fueled with combustible Calabrian chiles. It has a gentler kick and deeper complexity than most, so it’s a nice touch on pizza and also worth adding to pasta classics like arrabbiata and puttanesca.

Casa Firelli Hot Sauce, $5.99 for five ounces, $11.49 to $24.94 for multiple quantities, shop-us.firelli.com.
