Author Notes

The first time I went in a pizzeria in the UK, I remember this chili oil to season my pizza. It was amazing and gave the pizza a spicy kick! This is my take on recreating it. —miche

What You'll Need
  • 750 milliliters Extra virgin olive oil (medium quality)
  • 4 tablespoons Crushed dry chili
  • 20-30 Whole dry chilies
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 4-6 peppercorns
  1. Stuff whole peppers into the preserving bottle. Drop in a teaspoon of dried rosemary, a teaspoon of sea salt, a and a few peppercorns. Pour olive oil into the bottle, filling until about an inch from the top.
  2. Now, put the bottle in a dry, cool and dark place. Once a week give the bottle a shake and after a few weeks, the oil will change to slightly reddish color. It takes about a month to achieve the desirable hotness.
  3. Tip Use an empty white wine bottle.
