While standing in the deli line at Publix grocery store, I saw something that caught my eye. It was a little orange bottle of Sriracha Aioli sauce. The sound of Sriracha with anything was exciting enough but Sriracha aioli sounded absolutely mouth-watering. I immediately thought of drizzling it over a handcrafted pizza. Anything saucy with toasted bread is a win-win in my book.
Let’s break it down to the basics. What is Sriracha and what is aioli?
Sriracha is an Asian hot sauce condiment that contains chili peppers, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. Asian restaurants, fast food eateries and local grocery stores offer Sriracha sauce in its iconic red bottle with a green twist tip. Sriracha makes everything better. It’s totally addicting and now a favorite condiment for food lovers.
Aioli is a Greek garlic mayonnaise. It’s typically found in Mediterranean food and more in hors d’oeuvres or finger food as a base sauce or dip. Aioli sauce goes well with sandwiches and wraps.
Combined the two most interesting sauces and smother that on a handcrafted pizza. You get an addicting craft pizza.
I introduced my mushroom Sriracha aioli pizza to my friends at a pizza making party. They were blown away with the ease and deliciousness of the Sriracha aioli on a simple Alfredo mushroom pizza. You can try this recipe and see for yourself. I guarantee you will love it.
Sriracha Aioli Sauce
To make your own Sriracha aioli sauce, combine 4 cloves of mashed roasted garlic with ½ teaspoons salt into a small bowl. Whisk in ½ cup mayo of your choice. Add a drizzle of olive oil and ¼ teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice. Whisk some more and add 1 tablespoon of Sriracha and a pinch of pepper. Store the sauce in a mason jar and refrigerate until cold.

Let’s agree that pizza dough can be time consuming when you have a party of 5 to feed at a pizza party. I went with the already prepared brick oven pizza bread. It cuts back on the bake and wait time.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread garlic Alfredo sauce thinly on the pizza bread stopping 1 inch from the crust. Sprinkle mushrooms and thinly sliced red unions over the Alfredo sauce. Sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese over the pizza. Bake for 10 minutes or until the crust is toasted or cheese is melted.
Take the pizza out of the oven and drizzle Sriracha aioli sauce over the pizza. Top it with a splash of truffle oil and sprinkle black pepper. Enjoy your handcrafted garlic Alfredo mushroom and Sriracha aioli pizza. The name is a mouth full as is the pizza.
