The three small bottles of Art Bell Pizza Punch (ABPP) that I ordered last month finally arrived a few days ago.
I was hoping that the label would identify in some detail the contents of the ABPP, especially the ingredients used to infuse the oil. Unfortunately, all that the label says in the way of ingredients is "Santa Barbara Olive Company Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Spices." However, I have been testing the ABPP over the past few days. My first few uses was on reheated cracker crust pizza slices on which I had also placed fresh oregano and basil leaves from my garden. I could detect garlic quite prominently (although no garlic cloves are in the bottle), as well as "heat", quite possibly from dry red pepper flakes and/or cayenne. There are also several herbs in the ABPP, although I have not yet been able to pinpoint specific herbs.
Today, I also used the ABPP to brush a pizza skin before putting down the sauce, cheese and topping (pepperoni). This time, the garlic aroma was not as pronounced on the finished pizza, and the heat was not as intense, but I could still taste the garlic.
The bottom line for me is that I like the ABPP, and plan to use it fairly regularly on my pizzas, either freshly baked ones or reheated slices. I am more likely to put the ABPP on freshly baked pizzas after baking rather than before, although when I added the ABPP before baking I liked the way that the ABPP combined with the other flavors in the pizza to provide added complexity but in a subtle way. By that, I mean that you can tell that there is something different and enjoyable about the taste but can't quite put your finger on what it is. At least that was my reaction.
One of the nice features of the ABPP is that it comes with a plastic dispenser at the top of the neck of the bottle that allows you to shake only a few drops at a time. So, there should be no fear of accidentally pouring a good part of the bottle on whatever you are flavoring with the ABPP. I haven't thought through all of the possible uses of the ABPP, but I suspect they will emerge over time.
