Pizza with Soppressata, Basil, & Hot Honey

This easy homemade pizza with soppressata, basil, and hot honey is one of my all-time favorites! Fresh, spicy, savory, and a little sweet, it's great with a cold beer for a perfect weekend dinner.

Servings 4 people


  • 1 lb pizza dough (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 3 oz soppressata (salami works too!)
  • 1 small shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup parmesan, shaved
  • Hot honey, for drizzling
  • Julienned basil, for serving


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Place a pizza stone or sheet pan in the oven while it preheats.
  • Place the pizza dough on a cutting board. Roll it out until it's about 1/2'' thick. Spread the tomato sauce over the dough, leaving a 1/2'' around the edges.
  • Place the mozzarella, soppressata, and shallots on the pizza. Slide the pizza off of the cutting board and onto the hot pizza stone/sheet pan. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until the dough is browned and cheese is melty.
  • Remove the pizza from the oven. Sprinkle with parmesan and basil. Drizzle with desired amount of hot honey. Slice and serve!
