RGO = Rosemary Garlic Olive Oil

Cooking with Rosemary Garlic Oil

We usually keep a jar (or two, or three…) of our house-made Rosemary Garlic Oil (RGO) in the fridge at home. It makes life easy, and most importantly – more delicious!

Our house-made RGO is available by the jar at all of the pizzerias! Just stop by the Grab & Go case while you’re dining in or picking up your takeout order.

While there are infinite options with RGO, here are a few of our favourites we hope will inspire you:
  1. Dip or drizzle on your takeout pizza. Just like our chili oil.
  2. Substitute it for butter or oil for added deliciousness.
  3. Brush it onto toast or bruschetta.
  4. Drizzle it over grilled steak or roasted chicken or pork.
  5. Marinate vegetables in RGO, then sauté or oven roast.

In our latest video, we tackle RGO-marinated roast chicken and veg. It’s super simple, really delicious and always turns out great.

I used 2 chickens, 2 jars of RGO and marinated overnight. Over medium heat, skin side down, brown the pieces (6-8 minutes), pop in a 425 degree oven with lid on for 20 minutes, remove the lid and cook for another 10-20 minutes until chicken is cooked through.

Toss veggies in RGO, roast at 325 for 15-30 minutes. Test for doneness after 15 minutes. I used 1 jar for the cauliflower, squash and potatoes in the video!

Buon Appetito!
