  1. In a small bowl, combine honey and hot sauce; set aside.
  2. Adjust oven rack to middle position; preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Set aside a parchment or foil lined baking sheet. Slice focaccia in half horizontally and brush cut sides of bread with olive oil; place cut side up on baking sheet and bake 4 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly.
  3. Evenly spread each focaccia half with marinara sauce and pesto, then sprinkle with fontina cheese. Top with pepperoni, sausage, bocconcini and Parmesan cheese. Bake for 25 minutes. Turn oven to broil and broil pizza for 2 to 3 minutes, until cheese is golden brown.

  3. For added heat, serve with hot pepper flakes.
  4. A French loaf or Calabrese loaf sliced in half lengthwise can substitute for the focaccia.
