Pond Hill Farm’s Pesto Pizza

By Anna Faller | March 11, 2023

For an early slice (or five) of spring, it doesn’t get better than the Pesto Pizza at Pond Hill Farm in Harbor Springs. Stone-oven baked on yeasted dough, this classic white pie starts with fresh basil leaves and a whopping four different kinds of cheese—parmesan, pecorino romano, asiago, and plenty of fresh mozzarella—before it is baked to blistered perfection and topped with basil pesto imbued with crunchy sunflower seeds (no nut allergies here!). Though herby-good all on its own, chef Dominic Angelosante recommends upping the pizza ante further by adding slices of salty prosciutto—that’s a dry-cured Italian ham—and a drizzle of Calabrian Chile-infused “hot honey” for a mind-blowing bite. Sink your teeth into a 10-inch pie for $16 (there’s an upcharge for the extras) at Pond Hill Farm at 5699 S Lake Shore Dr. in Harbor Springs. And be sure to stay tuned for market updates, including hot honey for your pantry! (231) 526-3276,
