Rosemary Garlic Rolls

I have some crazy big herbs growing in my yard. Its one of my favorite things about living in Hawaii. My rosemary plant is so pretty. It smells so good when the sun warms it up. But I hardly ever use it. Can you see the basil forest in the background? HUGE! Wonderful.
Today I was determined to use some! What I did was super simple and really really tasty.

I just whipped up my go-to breadstick/pizza dough recipe. I love this one because its EASY and fast. It doesnt require hours of rising.

After the dough was ready I scooped it into balls then brushed it with melted butter garlic salt and chopped up rosemary.


So good! Brad better get home from work soon. I bet I could polish off this whole pan.

My basic dough:

1 1/2 C warm water
1T yeast
2T sugar
1t salt
3-4 C flour

3-4T melted butter
garlic salt sprinkled on top
chopped rosemary

Add yeast, sugar, and salt to the warm water. Let it sit for a few minutes.
Add flour a cup at a time. If dough is too sticky add more. Kneed it a few times.

Let the dough sit for about 10-15 min. Put it into you pan (see below for options). You can bake it now, or let it sit again. Either way is good. Just depends on your schedule!

Then bake at 425 till lightly brown usually about 10-15 min.

Make sure you spray the pan with non stick cooking spray! I learned that one the hard way.

You can either make this into pizza dough (one x-large or 2 meds or in my case, one large and two kid size) or smoosh into a cookie sheet, add butter and garlic salt, cut into strips before baking, or make small rolls like I did this time. You could also spread with melted butter and cinnamon and sugar.

I love rosemary. In fact, I use it almost daily! We had a huge plant (twice as big as that one!) in prescott and used it at a cousins wedding as decor. So many comments on how great it smelled and how pretty it was.

It is amazing to make bath salts with, the smell of fresh rosemary bath salt is amazing and a great gift.

I have a little plant that I can't wait to be as big as yours. So so so jealous.
