There are few things in life more fine than a homemade slice of pizza. Topping the crust with ingredients that make your imagination run wild, and then devouring it unceremoniously while it’s still piping hot and dripping down your chin. It’s glorious.
Yesterday, Ben and I were craving that sensation. Craving the golden brown crunch of the crust and the molten gorgonzola dripping off the sides – I went to work.
Now this crust is not quite an ordinary pizza crust. Well it is and it isn’t. It’s a carby and delicious pizza crust to be sure. But it gets a little bounce in it’s step due to one change in ingredient. The olive oil.
I’m a big fan of olive oil pizza doughs, positively yummy – and this one included not just olive oil – but rosemary infused olive oil from Star Fine Foods. My experience with the Star Olive oils goes back a ways, when during a dinner party we played a little game of guess the infusion over ricotta cheese and garlic toast. Talk about fun for dorky foodies. Between the lemon, garlic, basil and rosemary oils- we had our taste buds positively dancing.
In this recipe I wanted to utilize the warm comfy flavor of the rosemary and take the dough to the next level, which it totally did.
For the rosemary pizza dough, I wanted to top it with something to play off of and balsamic stewed figs, caramelized onions, gorgonzola and prosciutto seemed just the ticket! The dough is incredibly easy, the pizza incredibly sinful. It was a match made in heaven, and one I’m sure you’ll want to repeat in your own home.
Now – for the giveaway!

My favorite pizza is my own homemade which I have made for many many years.With sausage,pepperoni and cheese.
Heartbreaking. That sort of pizza speaks to my soul. I love rosemary when it finds its way into bread, but the thought of trying to imagine that WITH the toppings you actioned? 11/10. Period.
I love homemade pizza made on the grill with fig jam and gorgonzola.
my favorite is pepperoni with ricotta cheese
Awesome Recipe…Thanks for posting it dear..
I love chicken-ranch pizza with broccoli.
My fave pizza has got to be the ultimate classic – margherita!
Hmmm, a favorite pizza? That’s a tough question, but I think I’d have to go with good ol’ sausage!
Oh man this is one wickedly good recipe. I keep stalking you on facebook to stare at it. My fave is probably hawaiian. You don’t need to enter me, I’m a Canuck so they probably won’t be good here. But wanted to stop by and drool a bit before I buckle down to work. xx
My all time favourite pizza is white pizza. No sauce, tons of mozz, tomatoes, onion, herbs and garlic. YUM!!

As a kid I worked for a time in a small homemade Pizzeria and made dough by the pounds, loved the job! It was one of my favorites during my life! Pizza is so versatile and awesome!
I liked Star Fine foods on Facebook. 🙂
Oh, LOL forgot to add….
My favorite Pizza is a vegetarian with a small bit of pepperoni because if you order a meat pizza they never give enough vegetables so I always order the meat as an extra topping. 🙂
Wow! Another yeast product that you made that looks soooo good! I think the flavors of this dough are really awesome: rosemary and olive oil, what’s not to love.
Still hoping to conquer that fear of yeast soon. Will be saving this recipe to try one day!

Favorite pizza is a BBQ Chicken pizza hands down!!! But, there’s very few pizzas I won’t eat. My favorite food in the whole world.
Olive oil is great for any recipe but it is also a good source of phytochemicals and vitamins.`
Remember to have a look at our own website
Broccoli is classified in the Italica cultivar group of the species Brassica oleracea. Broccoli has large flower heads, usually green in color, arranged in a tree-like structure on branches sprouting from a thick, edible stalk. The mass of flower heads is surrounded by leaves. Broccoli most closely resembles cauliflower, which is a different cultivar group of the same species..
