While studying abroad in Brazil, Mike of Mike's Hot Honey visited a pizzeria where he found jars of honey with chilies sitting on the tables for drizzling on pies. He fell in love with the unique flavor profile of the honey and was blown away by how good it tasted on pizza.
Officially founded in 2010, but dreamed of since 2003, Mike's Hot Honey was born from the desire to create and share the highest quality honey infused with chili peppers. Mike began drizzling his signature hot honey on pizzas at the Brooklyn pizzeria where he worked, and customers started to ask if they could buy bottles to take home. Mike’s Hot Honey became a word-of-mouth sensation, sparking the creation of a new category of honey.
