Roasting a whole head of garlic inside of its papery skin is one of the easiest ways to enhance any pizza. The roasted cloves emerge from the oven soft and caramelized with a sweet, mellow flavor. Spread a little (or a lot) on any pizza crust for a huge flavor boost.

  • 1 head of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place the head of garlic on a piece of aluminum foil, drizzle with olive oil, and wrap it up securely, encasing the entire head inside the foil. Place on a small baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for about 30 minutes. Once the foil is cool enough to handle unwrap the package, remove the head of garlic, separate the cloves and then squeeze them out of their papery skin onto a dish. Mash with a fork until the mixture is a smooth paste.
