Pepperoni Pizza Chili

Pepperoni Pizza Chili– the best of both worlds.  You can’t beat a good pot of chili or a pepperoni pizza.  This recipe for pepperoni pizza chili is both… perfect for football season or a cool fall day after raking leaves.  Definitely, make this one your own– throw in your favorite pizza toppings.  Black olives.  Mushrooms. Green peppers.  Yum.  Enjoy!

I love how filling this pepperoni pizza chili is and how it is a twist on traditional chili!  It is oh-so-good and definitely better the second day, like all chili.

  1. My brother and sister-in-law have a chili cook off every year as part of their Super Bowl party. I’m going to make this pepperoni chili for a guaranteed win! Of course I will have to try it a few times before that just to make sure I make it correctly!
