Burrata Pizza Pie

Sometimes you’ve just gotta throw caution to the wind and have a Burrata Pizza Pie for dinner. Or lunch. Or better yet… breakfast!

It’s a treat yourself kinda day today, don’t you think. It felt like a long week. Can someone throw a three day weekend my way please? I’d be ever so grateful. For some reason this week was nutty. Perhaps it had something to do with the fact that I attempted a juice cleanse for 4.54345 hours and then decided that I was being majorly HANGRY and taking it out of my family and needed to cool it immediately and eat a pizza. Yup, I think that was it. If there’s ever any doubt about anything in life, pizza is generally the answer. Especially when it’s piled high with burrata cheese and fried basil. I mean, come on!! It’s pure perfection and there’s no ifs ands or buts about it.

Burrata Pizza Pie

If I had to pick one food to eat for an entire day, it would probably be burrata. Just leave me alone with it and a spoon and I’d be content. But, we’re going big today. It’s almost the weekend and pizza is deserved. Remember that homemade pizza dough I made a few weeks ago… grab some of that (or some from the store, I won’t judge) and let’s go to work. Burrata. Prosciutto. Basil. Pizza Sauce. Red Pepper Flakes. That’s it. Done.

Burrata Fried Basil Pizza

Burrata Pizza Pie

Burrata Pizza Pie


  • 1 recipe Homemade Pizza Dough
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 8 ounces burrata cheese
  • 1 3-ounce package prosciutto
  • handful of fresh basil, fried or torn into pieces
  • red pepper flakes


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Thirty minutes before cooking the pizza, put your pizza stone in the oven.
  3. Stretch out your pizza dough using your hands in a circular motion, then lay it on a flat surface and flatten it out using a rolling pin. If you have a pizza peel, sprinkle some flour on it and place the stretched out dough on the peel.
  4. Once your dough is flat and ready to be heated, use a spoon to spread the pizza sauce all around the dough leaving a little bit for the crust.
  5. Pop your pizza peel in the oven and slide it over the stone for ten minutes.
  6. After ten minutes, pull out the pizza and sprinkle the creamy burrata on top of the pie.
  7. Put your pizza back in the oven for another 3-4 minutes.
  8. When the cheese is just starting to melt, take it out and top with prosciutto and the fried basil, salt, and red pepper flakes. Cut into 6-8 slices and serve immediately.

  1. We had the most amazing burrata pizza in Italy a few weeks ago. It was a plain Margarita, about 14 inches, with a whole burrata on top. It was in a town just outside Turin and the friend who took us there said he goes to the restaurant regularly just for the Burratina! Burrata is a wonderful thing.
