Roasted Garlic

Roasted garlic has been my favorite pizza topping lately. (Stay tuned for a forthcoming post on my three favorite pizzas.) It adds the most incredible flavor and works well in combination with so many other yummy toppings.  The only downside is that it takes some time, so you have to plan a little in advance.  It'll be worth it though.

Other uses for roasted garlic include, but are not limited to: spread on crusty bread, use in pasta dishes, or add to soups or sauces.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

Slice off the pointed top of each head of garlic to expose the cloves.

Place on foil and drizzle generously with olive oil. 

Sprinkle with Kosher salt.  

Wrap foil around garlic and bake for 40-50 minutes.  

Allow to cool. 

To remove, squeeze gently from the bottom of the head.  The cloves should be pretty soft and pop out easily.
