Add some spice to your slice with a hot sauce by famed Melinda’s made just for pizza. The mild but undeniably tasty sauce is made with a blend of sweet red peppers, spicy red cayenne peppers, garlic, and tomato that comes together to mimic the taste of the ever-popular crushed red pepper flakes. The draw: no seeds! While the zippy sauce is the perfect accouterment for pizza, you’ll want to stock it as an addition to all of your Italian favorites, from calzones and chicken Parmesan to baked ziti and meatballs.
Habanero peppers aren’t the hottest pepper out there, and while they are spicy, they allow for a more citrus-y, slightly smokey flavor to stick out along with the spicey kick that you may get (via Pepperscale). This doesn’t mean that habanero peppers aren’t spicy, however, because they’ve got quite the kick to them, making them the perfect flavor to liven up a bottle of ketchup.
Melinda’s sizzling hot sauces will set dad’s mouth on fire with intense flavors to elevate sandwiches, wings and any dish that needs a kick.

Melinda’s hot sauces are available on their website, Amazon, Walmart and Vitacost.com.

There are two types of people in this world: Those who put hot sauce on seemingly everything and those who don’t know what they’re missing.
“Hot sauces add a distinct taste and aroma to the food, and it gives a tongue-burning kind of spicy that I love,” Lola Osinkolu, a home cook and blogger at Chef Lola’s Kitchen, told HuffPost. “For example, a sauce made predominantly with habaneros will have a fruity flavor. If serrano is used, the bitter notes will shine through, while jalapeño’s fresh essence is hard to ignore. In addition, it adds a punch of flavor to plain or bland food, making it more enjoyable to eat.”
