TABASCO® Dill Cucumber Pita

This post brought to you by TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

Our youngest has always been a huge fan of hot sauce. She puts it on everything….from eggs, to sandwiches to pizza.

So I was really excited when I was asked if I wanted a bottle of TABASCO® Original Red to spice up some dishes around our house!

Did you know that whether you shake a little or pour a lot, Tabasco is more than “just heat”? Unlike other sauces that mask the flavor of food, Tabasco blends with every bite. The simple combination of salt, red pepper, and vinegar are perfected in a 3-year aging process that produces a hot sauce with the uncanny ability to bring the most out of your food. Other hot sauces add their own specific flavor to food. TABASCO® Original Red simply enhances the flavor of food.

Super Bowl Pizza parties are the perfect time to pull out the Tabasco!

  • Pizza Delivery – Just because pizza comes with mozzarella doesn’t mean it has to stop there. Upon delivery, top it with Original TABASCO® brand Pepper Sauce and other favorite cheeses such as Cheddar, Monterey Jack, Gouda, or provolone. Return it to a 450°F oven for 10 minutes and serve
  • Make your own PizzaCaramelized Onion Pizza: Caramelized onions make regular or white pizza delicious and elegant enough for company. Just sauté onions with a little butter, a little sugar, and a healthy amount of TABASCO® Sauce.
  • Make Frozen Pizza FabulousBuffalo Chicken Pizza: Toss cooked chicken with Original TABASCO® Sauce, and place on cheese pizza. Top with sliced celery and blue cheese for fire wing flavor on pizza. Bake

  1. Cheryl, this looks absolutely delicious! And I’m pretty sure it’s like almost 0 WW points. Bonus! I bet the addition of Tobasco really helps make this more appealing to carnivores (like my hubby!).

  2. YUMMY! We use our hot sauce everyday! Thanks for a healthy option too.

  3. Looks fantastic. I love adding a dash of Tabasco to so many things!

  4. I love Tabasco sauce! I always have to have some on hand to spice up any dish!

  5. I LOVE Tabasco sauce and THIS sounds amazing. Perfect combination of hot sauce and cool cucumber….YUM!!

  6. Great tips for when to use Tobasco. My older sons are getting old enough to like “hot” things and they’ve been adding it to soups and eggs, but now I’ll tell them about pizza and adding it to sandwiches.

  7. Yummy! That looks really good Cheryl!!


  8. Holy Smokes YUM! Never mind Super Bowl, I want this for lunch tomorrow.
