Make this cult favorite New York pizza at home! The perfect combination of spicy & sweet, this pie combines sopressata, chili oil, and a drizzle of honey.


  • 1 16" pizza crust (find the recipe for homemade pizza dough in our Pierogi Pizza post, or cut some time by using a store bought dough).


  • 1 26 oz can of crushed tomatoes
  • 4 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 6-8 basil leaves


  • 4 oz soppressata, sliced
  • 4 oz chopped and cooked sausage
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp chil- infused oil


To make the sauce:

  1. In a medium saucepan, add 1/4 C olive oil, crushed garlic, and tomatoes. Cover with a lid and heat over medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from heat and remove lid.
  3. This sauce will be enough for 2-3 pizzas. Refrigerate for up to 1 week.

To make the pizza:

  1. Preheat oven to 500°.
  2. Roll out the dough onto a floured surface and place on a pizza pan or baking sheet.
