TGIT!! Thursday is the new Friday so bring on the weekend and this Three Cheese Pizza!!!
Three Cheese Pizza loaded with mozzarella, goat cheese and burrata. It’s the trifecta of cheeses on a pizza plus 2 kinds of pizza sauce. BRING IT ON.
Let’s break this down shall we. Typically I do a pizza with a 1/2 lb of crust… today we’re getting crazy and going with the full lb of pizza dough. It’s going to result in a puffier pizza which is perfect because wait until you hear what going on top.
There’s a duo of sauces on this Three Cheese Pizza pie… traditional red pizza sauce AND my basil vinaigrette. You know I keep that on hand in the fridge at all times, so it makes total sense to mix it with a pizza sauce and up the ante on the pizza game.
Once that’s all taken care of, you add mozzarella and goat cheese and bake it off. Top it with the queen of all cheeses, burrata… dust it with some red pepper flakes and finish it off with some fresh basil for garnish. Doesn’t get easier right? Plus it’s great for vegetarians. And if you want to add some prosciutto or crumbled bacon on top, be my guest!
- 1 lb pizza dough
- 1/3 cup pizza sauce
- 1/3 cup Basil Vinaigrette
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 ounces goat cheese
- 4 ounces burrata cheese
- handful of fresh basil
- red pepper flakes
- Pre-heat your oven to 500 degrees.
- 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 pizza sauce and basil vinaigrette all around the dough leaving a little bit for the crust. Top with the mozzarella and goat cheese
- Pop your pizza peel in the oven and slide it over the stone for 12-14 minutes, until the dough is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
- After the pizza is cooked, pull out the pizza and tear the burrata into pieces and place on top.
- Top with basil, salt, and red pepper flakes. Cut into 6-8 slices and serve immediately.
