Making pizzas today, Ralph's is out of BH's Pepperoni sticks, they have Soppressata, piccante Soppressata & Spanish Chorizo sticks.   3 of the people that are getting a pie from me don't do spicy, I'm assuming the piccante isn't gonna have much kick for even a lightweight.    I've never had either and wondering if anyone here has had both and has a preference.   Since they do sell a spicy and non spicy version there is some level of difference.   I thought I'd ask here for a 1-10 spice rating on the piccante version.

For me, it's about a 4.

Thank you, unless you're a chili head where your 4 would be most peoples 9 they'll be fine. If not, they'll just have to pick it off.

It really is quite mild.

BH uses piccante to mean sharp as opposed to hot spicy from my experience.

You are right about that, now I think about it I bought picante provolone from them and remember they said it was sharper. The packaging here starts with "a spicy blend"  But I didn't find it spicy at all, but I love heat so maybe it's just me. I think their Pepperoni might even have a slight bit more kick than this. It's pretty damn tasty though and I really like it on pizza.  And I doubt a any of the 6 people I made pizzas for today would have known it wasn't Pepperoni unless I told them.
