The hot mess is a unique white pizza that combines smoky, salty, and sweet flavors. It features a dough made with Durum flour, which is carefully spread out and topped with mozzarella, caramelized onions, brined jalapenos, and house-made bacon. The pizza is cooked in an Italian dome oven using oak wood for a smoky and sweet finish. The result is a hot, bubbly, and flavorful pie with a charred crust that holds its shape and offers a balance of textures and aromas.
