Airy and tender with a crisp exterior, homemade focaccia makes a perfect base for simple homemade pizza. Plus, it is a great beginner bread for inexperienced bakers as the dough is fairly simple to prepare and work with. (Not to mention, with enough olive oil and salt, even a not-great focaccia is still pretty tasty.) In this recipe, the bread is already infused with a ton of herbaceous flavor from the herb oil, so a simple tomato sauce is all that’s needed for your pizza. Add on rich and melty fresh mozzarella, slightly spicy and salty sopressata, a few fresh basil leaves, and a drizzle of spicy honey… and you have perhaps one of the greatest pizzas you’ll ever experience on your hands. While you could certainly opt for regular if you’d prefer, we highly recommend giving the warming-sweet kick a spicy honey delivers to the pie a chance. We particularly love Brooklyn-based Mike’s Hot Honey, which you can order on Amazon. If you’re tight on time, you can substitute a purchased herb and garlic oil in place of making your own. Also feel free to swap the sopressata for pepperoni or leave the meat off altogether for a vegetarian pie.
