Step 1

Stir salt, extra-virgin olive oil, & hot honey into  mixture.

Step 2

With wooden spoon, mix in 1 ½ C + 2 Tbsp flour.  If dough feels wet, add another Tbsp flour. Form dough into a ball, gently knead a few times in the bowl.

Step 3

Cover bowl with kitchen towel & let rest in a warm spot for about 2 hours, so dough can rise.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 450 degrees & lightly dust a round baking pan with cornmeal.

Step 5

In a small bowl, mix together olive oil & minced garlic.

Step 6

Stretch dough out to fit it on  prepared baking sheet & brush lightly with olive oil, brushing all the way to the edges of dough.

Step 7

Place sliced mozzarella cheese around dough & sprinkle gorgonzola over dough.

Step 8

Layer on prosciutto & hot soppressata. Top with sliced red onion.

Step 9

Bake pizza for 10-12 mins, until crust is golden & cheese is bubbling & turning golden.
