Soppressata Pizza with Chili Honey Aioli

Randomly, it took going to a farm at dusk to watch Hocus Pocus to have one of the best pizzas ever.

A few weeks before Halloween, Wellspring Farm in West Bend, Wisconsin posted on Facebook about a Farm Flix & Chill Party.  Reading further, I realized the event was all about wood fired pizza and Hocus Pocus.  Enough said, I was sold.

We brought Lainie with us and had an absolute ball.  In addition to the outdoor movie, there was a small market with fresh produce from the farm, hayrides, and warm bonfire.

The pizzas were made fresh in a wood burning oven and were simply incredible.  Our favorite was the “Sweet Heat.”  Creamy mozzarella, salty soppressata, and spicy/sweet aioli.  Such a great combo I couldn’t wait to get home and try my hand at it.

Two pizzas in, the film started and being surrounded by other families curled up in blankets and camp chairs on a serene farm made for a really memorable night.

I tried re-creating that amazing pizza and got pretty darn close.  Hocus Pocus is also currently on our TV.  Enjoy!

Cheesy, saucy, spicy, with a hint of sweet.  Everything I want in a pizza!
The aioli recipe makes more than you need but that's in your favor since it's delicious on sandwiches and burgers too.
