Potato wedges and aioli

Crispy Potato Wedges with Black Pepper Aioli

There is a restaurant in Virginia Beach, called Hearth, that makes some amazing wood fired pizza.  Actually all of their food is delicious and I highly recommend it if you are in the area.  One of their pizzas is a take on a BLT, but with kale and is topped with a black pepper aioli.  I have often put a balsamic reduction on my pizza, but never an aioli.  It was incredible!  I knew I needed to try to make it at home.

I am not a huge fan of ketchup and rarely have it on hand, but this black pepper aioli seemed like the perfect dip for some crispy potato wedges.  Every now and then I crave chips and these seem to take care of that craving!  This aioli would also taste great on a sandwich, burger, or even as a veggie dip.  Now all I need to do is master my pizza recipe and I will be set!
