Herbed Garlic Butter Pizza Crust
Pizza crusts often go uneaten. Sometimes called “pizza bones,” they’re often seen as lower value in the pizza culture, tidbits to be cast aside in favor of the cheesy, saucy, delicate center. . If you’re the kind of person who leaves a pile of “bones” on your plate (or maybe you know someone who does), prepare to make a pizza judgment U-turn..
Our herbed garlic butter turns plain crust into something rich, aromatic and delicious. Made simply — we believe that fewer, better ingredients produce the best flavors — this easy garlic butter might just transform the way you make pizza forever. Brush it on after your pie is done baking and you’ll bring it back to the bones.
1 hour 20 minutes
227 grams of butter
1 small saucepan
30 grams garlic, chopped
227 grams unsalted butter
10 grams dried oregano
5 grams flaky sea salt
Chop the garlic finely, then add it to the butter and oregano in a small saucepan over medium heat. Wait until the butter melts and the garlic is fragrant, then stir to combine the ingredients. Let the mixture cool until it reaches a spreadable consistency, then fold in the salt.
Using a pastry brush, roughly paint the garlic butter onto your pizza crust, garlic knots or bread dough.
(If you use this garlicky treat on a pizza crust, brush it on after the bake to prevent the butter getting too hot and burning in your oven.)
