With most of the fresh ingredients coming from the Island, PEI favorite Famous Peppers is famous for thinking locally..

FAMOUS PEPPERS PIZZA PEISince it's beginning in 2003, Famous Peppers has been a family owned and operated business.  Dan Mitchell is proud of that fact, and that their locally produced product also uses products that are produced locally..

"Everything we make is handmade using ingredients of the highest quality possible," he tells us from Famous Peppers Charlottetown location. "Whatever we can get on the Island, we use. All of our meat is grown, produced and processed on P.E.I, and does not contain MSG or gluten. Our sauce is made for us here as well."

It's that sauce that prompted Chef Michael Smith to say it was definitely "worth a special trip for their incredible sauce".  And he's not the only one from the Food Network singing Peppers' praises. Recently the crew from You Gotta Eat Here! paid a visit to Famous Peppers. That episode will be airing in September 2013.

Another claim to fame was their second place position in Saputo's nation-wide Pizza Hall of Fame.

The Famous Peppers menu boasts some interesting offerings, and one of the more popular ones is the Maple Chicken Pizza (pictured at top of post). The maple cream base is also used on a couple of other pies, including a dessert pizza.

Dan was kind enough to share that very creamy recipe with us and we're grateful
