  • 1 pound store-bought pizza dough
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 sprig rosemary roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese fresh grated
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • optional cornmeal for dusting the pan


  • Prep the rolls. Let the dough sit out at room temperature or in a warm place for about 20 minutes to make handling the dough easier. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, if you have a kitchen scale they should weigh 2 ounces each.  Roll each piece of dough into a ball, then at the bottom of the dough ball twist and pull the dough, rotating the ball and pull tension on the top of the roll.  Place on a sheet pan lined with a piece of parchment paper, dust with cornmeal for a more authentic roll.  Bake at 400°F for 15 to 2o minutes until the tops of the rolls are golden brown.
  • Make the oil.  While the rolls bake, prepare the oil.  Add all the ingredients to a bowl and whisk together.  When serving the oil, give it a quick stir before ladling on a small flat plate or shallow bowl. Serve the rolls hot and fresh out of the oven for the best taste or quickly stick them back in before serving.
