Olive Garden Pizza Rustica

Posted by: ChefTom in Categories: Olive Garden, Recipes.

I recently picked up a ceramic pizza stone which allows you to get that perfect crust like your pizza just came out of a brick oven.  Today’s secret recipe is a great example of a recipe that comes out so much better when baked on a pizza stone.  Olive Gardens Pizza Rustica has a flavorful medley of toppings like eggplant, roasted garlic, prosciutto, pesto and of course mozzarella cheese.  You can certainly make this pizza on a metal baking pan, but if you want that pizzeria style crust, I suggest you get yourself a stone like this to bake it on.

This recipe calls for pesto sauce which you can purchase in a jar or you can make your own using this recipe from our forum: Go Here

Enjoy!

Olive Garden Pizza Rustica

7 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (approximately)
1 pk dry active yeast
2 1/2 cups water, warm (90-115ºF)
1/2 Tbsp +1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
All-purpose flour as needed
1 eggplant, peeled and cut into very thin slices
16 fresh garlic cloves
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
20 thin slices prosciutto ham
4 rounds fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into slices
4 tbsp of pesto (jarred)

Pre-heat oven to 350ºF.

PIZZA DOUGH:

Pour warm water into a bowl. Add yeast. Using a wire whip, whisk to completely dissolve yeast. Set aside for about 5 minutes, or until yeast activates. Add 1 cup flour, salt and extra virgin olive oil. Mix well. Add remaining flour 1 cup at a time until dough is soft and springy. Dough should turn into a ball. If dough is too dry, add a very small amount of water. If it becomes too wet, add a small amount of flour.

Place ball of dough on a floured board and cover with a dry towel. Allow to sit until ball doubles in size.

Cut risen dough into 4 equal pieces. Again, roll into balls and allow to rise*.

ROASTED GARLIC CLOVES:

Place garlic cloves in a small pan. Add 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil and evenly coat each clove..

Bake at 350ºF for 45 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.

PIZZA:

Place dough ball on floured board. Using hands, flatten and spread out to form a circle.

Slide pizza dough onto a pizza pan or parchment paper.

Place fresh mozzarella slices on pizza. Add sliced eggplant and roasted garlic cloves.

Bake at 550ºF for 5-6 minutes, or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and add prosciutto slices. Top with spoonfuls of pesto.

*If not using dough immediately, wrap each ball with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready for use. Once ready to use, remove from refrigerator and bring to room temperature.

Serves 4

We’re getting hit with a second snow storm this week here in New York so that means it’s time for some more shoveling.  A nice bowl of soup always hits the spot after coming in from the cold and today’s secret recipe (shown below) does the trick.  Olive Garden’s angel hair and three onion soup is a flavorful blend of pearl onions, red onions and Vidalia onions in a chicken based broth.

This recipe couldn’t be easier to prepare.  The best part is that it uses ingredients that I normally already have in the kitchen.

We have many more great-tasting soup recipes on our forum: Go Here
