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.
