What is Burrata cheese?

Burrata cheese is a mix of mozzarella and cream and it’s become very popular in the last year or so.

Do I put burrata on pizza before or after cooking?

I put the burrata cheese on before cooking in this recipe.

Can I substitute anything for the shallot?

The flavor of shallot is similar to a red onion but sweeter and less tart. Therefore, you can substitute red onions or pickled red onions.

How do I cut basil ribbons?

Make basil ribbons by laying about 10 leaves of basil on a cutting board. Make a pile, with the largest leaf at the bottom. Next, roll the leaves into a log. Slice the log thinly into strips. Unroll and garnish with the basil ribbons.


flatbread with pesto


  • Let dough come to room temp- this helps it to more easily be formed
  • Brust the crust with olive oil and season for a deliciously crispy golden crust
  • Make sure the oven is already to temp before cooking
  • Lightly spray a pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray
  • Be sure to poke the center of the dough with a fork as this will prevent bubbles from forming in the dough

  • 8 ounces Burrata cheese
  • 1 pound pre-made pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • ½ pint cherry tomatoes halved
  • ¼ cup basil pesto
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1 medium shallot sliced thin
  • ½ cup arugula
  • 1 tablespoon basil cut into ribbons, info above


  • Allow pizza dough to come to room temp. Preheat the oven to 425°F.

  • Brush the outer rim of the pizza dough with olive oil, then sprinkle with Italian seasoning
  • Spread pesto over the center. Top with halved tomatoes, shallot, and mozzarella pearls. Leave a small space in the center for the Burrata.
