Lowell’s House Chili Oil

About five years ago we started making chili oil for our tables, as is common in restaurants throughout Italy. Given our love for all things with a little spice, we felt it complemented our pizzas quite well. It’s so simple I highly recommend making a bottle for your home use. It’s not only great on pizza but with eggs and pasta as well.


500ml bottle of organic olive oil (ideally in a clear bottle)
½ cup organic chili flakes

Pour bottle of olive oil into a stainless steel pot and add chili flakes, retaining original bottle to pour oil back into. Bring oil to a light simmer on medium low heat for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool for 15 minutes. Pour oil and chili flakes into a blender and blend on high for 2 minutes. Pour through a very fine strainer and let settle for 24 hours. Pour oil back into original bottle, leaving sediment behind. Enjoy daily!
