Heat Index (5/10) 


Pizza. The carrot and garlic combine to give a nice sweetness, but the habanero gives a strong kick that goes well with the cheese of the pizza and gives boldness to the crust.



1 tablespoon olive oil

1 cup carrots, chopped

1/2 cup onions, chopped

3 cloves garlic, chopped

6 whole habanero

1/2 cup white vinegar


  1. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet and sauté the carrots, onions, and garlic until translucent, about 5 minutes, then let cool completely.
  2. Transfer mixture to a blender, add the peppers and blend until smooth, gradually adding vinegar until you reach desired consistency.
  3. Pour into a clean jar or bottle. Store in the refrigerator for at least to 1 month.
