Why I Love This Recipe

Pizza night has been a longstanding tradition at our house. It typically occurs on a Friday and it's the perfect way to welcome the weekend. It ranges from just the 3 of us to a larger crew if we go big and invite friends. I fire up the outdoor pizza oven if the weather permits or plug in our indoor pizza oven and go to town. I'll always do a mix of 2-3 different pizzas and more times than not, that include this Burrata Pizza. It's salty and creamy and very easy to whip up.

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • 1 pound of store bought or homemade pizza dough
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Parmesan
  • Burrata
  • Prosciutto
  • Basil, fresh or fried
  • Red pepper flakes

How to Make

Preheat your oven to 500 degrees (or preheat your indoor pizza oven to 650-700)

Thirty minutes before cooking the pizza, put your pizza stone in the oven.

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.

Once your dough is flat and ready to be heated, use a spoon to spread the oil, garlic and parm all around the dough leaving a little bit for the crust.

Pop your pizza peel in the oven and slide it over the stone for 8-12 minutes.

Once the crust is cooked, remove from the oven and slather with the burrata and prosciutto. 

Garnish the Burrata Pizza with fried basil, salt, and red pepper flakes. Cut into 6-8 slices and serve immediately.

Tips & Tricks

If you're making your own pizza dough, grab a bag of 00 flour. It's a finer ground flour that allows for a softer and better dough. This is key because no one wants a tough pizza. If you can’t find 00 flour at your local grocery store, you can also order it from Amazon.

As I mentioned above, it's super important to let your pizza dough come to room temperature before trying to mold it into your pizza shape. I take it out at LEAST 30 minutes before forming, but it's best if you can let it sit at room temperature for 45-60 before shaping into a circle, oval or rectangle.

If you don't have a pizza oven or pizza peel, you can make pizza on a baking sheet without issue! Just be sure to have your oven on 500 so you can get the crust as crispy and perfect as possible.

FAQ's

What is Burrata?

Burrata is a type of Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream. It has a soft and creamy interior with a firm outer shell.

Do you put burrata on pizza before or after baking?

After baking as it's such a delicate cheese, it will get too watery if it's on before the dough goes into the oven.

What's the difference between Fior di Latte and burrata?

Fior di Latte is a type of fresh mozzarella cheese made from cow's milk, while burrata is a cheese made from mozzarella and cream.

How to fry basil?

Heat a thin layer of oil in a heavy duty pan, add the basil leaves, and fry until crispy. Carefully remove and let dry on a paper towel.
