yeah I get it, calabrese is supposed to have some spice but the kick is much too strong, and worse yet no sweetness to balance it out.. I mean with the high % of red pepper i expected some sweetness especially being italian produce.. needs so much more flavour in my opinion. won't be buying again. Expensive too.

I bought this based on the reviews and have to admit I wasn't blown away by it. It's blander than it should be. I can't taste much spice.

Delicious for homemade pizza

I make my own pizza dough and use this pesto as a base, then top with grated cheese. Sometimes I add black olives and/or mushrooms. It has slight heat but not hot. This pesto makes a delicious pizza.
