Homemade pizza can be easy to make at home, especially with the help of a few shortcuts like premade pizza dough and sauce. It’s such a fun and simple meal to make for a family night or game night.

My kids always love pepperoni pizza so I thought I would change it up a little by substituting salami. They are similar in taste and texture but the thin sliced salami gives you just a slightly different, wonderful flavor. It was a huge success! Everyone loved it and wanted me to use these toppings for our next pizza night.

Ingredients needed

Salami – You can use an Italian salami like Genoa salami or a simple hard salami.

Red onions – I like the color and flavor from red onions but you can also substitute with sweet Vidalia onions.

Italian seasonings

Parmesan cheese – I recommend using grated Parmesan but you can also use shredded.

Mozzarella cheese – Shredded, low-moisture mozzarella cheese.

Sauce – You can use a homemade marinara or store bought pizza sauce.

Crust – Use your favorite homemade pizza dough or pre-made dough. You can typically find pre-made dough at the grocery store in the bakery section or you can even buy it from your favorite local pizza restaurant.

Cornmeal – This is optional but makes a nice addition to the flavor and texture of the crust.

How to serve

This pizza with salami is absolutely delicious served right out of the oven. Try topping with some fresh basil, fresh parsley or even a drizzle of hot honey for an out of this world salty, sweet combination.

Recipe tips

  • Note that the amount of ingredients you use might vary depending on the size of pizza you are making.
  • If you prefer a thin crust, be sure to roll out the crust really thin before adding the toppings.
  • This could also be made into a deep dish by baking it in a cast iron skillet or deep casserole dish.
  • Want some heat? Try sprinkling with crushed red pepper flakes.

How to store

Store any leftovers, covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can reheat in the microwave in 30 second intervals until warm, in the oven, or you can reheat in the air fryer.

Topping variations

I really love the combination of these toppings together but the great thing about pizza is that you can change it up and make it your own. Here are a few other suggestions that pair well with salami:

Meat: Make it a meat lovers by adding, Italian sausage, pepperoni or sliced ham.

Vegetables: Try adding sweet bell peppers, olives, pickled jalapenos, banana peppers, fresh mushrooms, or even diced pineapple.
