Executive Chef Dustin Schotsch from Red Phone Booth made a Hot Honey Spicy Sicilian Pizza. Red Phone Booth is located 136 Rosa Parks Blvd. While the exclusive lounge is open to the public, part of the unique prohibition experience is that guests will need a secret phone number from a friend, member or local concierge to dial into the restored London antique red phone booth to gain entry. Individual memberships are still available. For more information about Red Phone Booth, memberships and more, visit www.redphonebooth.com.
HOT HONEY SPICY SICILIAN PIZZA

In a small saucepan, over medium high heat, sauté chilies until fragrant, about 1 to 2
minutes. Add honey and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 to 10

transfer to a glass container and let cool.
