I am always looking for new and exciting ingredients to use in my cooking. When Collective Bias® contacted me about testing out Star Butter Olive Oil in a recipe, I jumped at the chance! Before running out to Walmart down the street from my house, I did a little research about the Butter Flavored Olive Oil on the Star Fine Foods website. Gluten free, dairy free, cholesterol free – those are just some of the benefits of using butter flavored olive oil as a substitute for butter or margarine. You can actually be one of 10 lucky people to win a free bottle on the Star Facebook by entering their contest ending December 10th!
Last Tuesday I decided I was going to make one of my favorite meals using the Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil – Broccoli and Shrimp PIZZA! It would be a white pizza topped with broccoli, shrimp, olives, and mozzarella. Normally when I make this pizza, I use real butter for the broccoli and shrimp. The fat in the butter makes the toppings sit heavy both on the pizza and in our bellies.
The Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil made a huge difference in both how the pizza tasted, as well as how we felt after eating it! The broccoli and shrimp was light, tasty, and just a little buttery. There was no oily after taste, nor did the pizza have a little puddle of grease resting on top.
I also used the butter flavored olive oil in my dough recipe as a substitute for actual olive oil. The crust had a fantastic light buttery taste.
I must be honest, before I cooked with the butter flavored olive oil, I decided I had to try it plain. I was surprised at how delicious it was. I could only describe the taste as light and buttery. I could see myself using this as a substitute for butter in cookies, while frying potatoes, or even on top of my popcorn. The Star Fine Foods website includes a handy dandy conversion chart if you want to replace butter/margarine in your own recipe.
Broccoli Shrimp Pizza
- pizza stone
- 1 package pizza dough
- all purpose flower
- 1 cup chopped broccoli
- 12-15 prawns fresh or thawed use 12 if they're big, 15 if they're small. Peeled and devained.
- 1 cup black olives
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- ¼ cup diced onion optional
- 2 cups shredded mozzerella
- butter flavored olive oil
- salt and pepper
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Over a floured surface, roll out your pizza dough to fit your pizza stone. I made my own dough using a quick rising pizza crust yeast and then used my hands to shape the dough to fit my pizza stone. Fold the edges of your dough up to make a crust. Brush the dough with Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil.
- Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil in a skillet over low heat. Add the onions and broccoli. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes and transfer the broccoli and onions to a plate to cool.
- In the same skillet, add another 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter flavored olive oil. Add the minced garlic and shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. Cook the shrimp over medium-low heat until they are pink (5-7 minutes). Be careful not to overcook your shrimp, for they will cook in the oven!
- Pre-bake your pizza crust for 6-8 minutes, or until the dough is firm to the touch.
- Remove the pizza crust from the oven and immediately top with the broccoli and the shrimp. Sprinkle a layer of cheese over the ingredients and bake for another 6-8 minutes.
- Add your remaining cheese and the olives to the pizza and bake until bubbly. I baked mine for 5 minutes! Remove your pizza and allow it to cool before slicing!
