With holiday’s just around the corner, it is nice to take a break from all the traditional foods. I, for one, love pizza! I think I could eat it almost daily if my husband would let me. So when Carbonell dared me to Carbonell, my mind went straight to Mediterranean Pizza. I was glad my husband was on board as well since it isn’t your traditional style pizza.
Let me tell you a bit about Carbonell before I get into the recipe. Carbonell has been the leading brand of Olive Oil in Spain since 1866! They pride themselves on their all-natural, healthy olive oil that holds the flavor of Spain. They have three varieties of their olive oils to suite your cooking needs. They are:
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil – It is Daringly Expressive with it’s rich smooth taste. It is a great addition to any dish with Spanish personality. Dishes to use Extra Virgin Olive Oil include: salads, dips and marinades.
- Extra Light Olive Oil – It is Fantastically Light! Use it for sauteing, frying, and even baking.
- Classic Olive Oil – The Classic is very Distinct. It has a traditional flavor that extends back to the heritage of Cordoba. Use the Classic Olive Oil for all-purpose cooking.

For my recipe, I chose to work with the Fantastically Light Extra Light Olive Oil. It was the best fit for recipe. One thing I really liked was the handy suggestions that are labeled on the bottles; such as, “Best for Sauteing, Grilling, and Baking” listed on the Extra Light Olive Oil. I am always getting confused on which styles of Olive Oil to use when cooking.
Doesn’t that pizza look wonderful? I can tell you, with it’s daring flavor, it didn’t last long in this house. If you notice, there isn’t red pizza sauce on this pizza. Carbonell’s Extra Light Olive Oil provided for a wonderful garlic sauteed sauce. It was even key in cooking the chicken for this pizza. Mediterranean pizza has made it to the top of my list of favorite food thanks to Carbonell!
