Dish: Spicy sausage and black pepper honey pizza, $13

Where: Tazza Kitchen, 2931 S. Glebe Road, Arlington

Taste: I was skeptical. Could the honey could be too cloying? The pork overpowering? The cheese disappearing under all the flavors?

I didn’t need to doubt the combination.

Earthy, aged provolone collaborated with fresh mozzarella (from Sterling‘s Blue Ridge Dairy Company) and was plentiful but also left room for the housemade spicy sausage (from Nelson County‘s The Rock Barn). Drizzled raw honey mixed with fresh ground black pepper tops the pizza after it’s baked in a wood-burning oven. Never will I ever doubt the idea of a pizza with sweet and spicy meat again.
