Italian Appetizer: Herbed Focaccia Bites and Roasted Garlic

Posted on

Roast Garlic

Focaccia

1 pound or 1 can premade pizza dough (a refrigerated canned dough, such as Pillsbury, works well)

1-2 tablespoons olive oil

¼ to ½ teaspoon of each of the following: basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper

Preheat oven to suggested temperature on dough package.  Roll out pizza dough on nonstick baking sheet.  Brush/spread olive oil on dough.  Sprinkle basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper on top.  Bake about 10 minutes (or as package suggests), until dough is lightly browned.

 Roasted Garlic

3-4 whole heads of garlic

2 tablespoons olive oil

¼ to ½ teaspoon salt

¼ to ½ teaspoon pepper

Large sheet of foil

Preheat oven to 400 F.  Cut off the very top portion of the garlic heads (about ¼ to ½ inch) and peel away some of the papery skin.  Place garlic heads on large piece of foil, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Wrap foil around garlic heads, place on cookie sheet, and cook in oven for about 30-45 minutes (or until garlic cloves are soft).

 Cut up focaccia into bite-sized pieces and serve with roasted garlic.  Spread roasted garlic on focaccia pieces with a small knife.
