- Burrata cheese. I found burrata at Walmart and Kroger. If you can’t find it or don’t want to spend that much for cheese (it’s a little pricey) you can substitute ricotta or fresh mozzarella.
- Pizza dough. You can make the dough (here’s my easy recipe) or purchase it. Kroger has frozen dough that tastes homemade. As well, you can get refrigerated pizza dough or use the ready bake ones.
- Olive oil.
- Italian seasoning.
- Mozzarella cheese. I use fresh mozzarella cheese pearls. They’re about the size of a marble. You can slice the large balls of fresh mozzarella.
- Cherry tomatoes. Or, you can use grape tomatoes.
- Basil pesto.
- Shallots. Thinly slice the shallot. You can also use pickled red onions.
- Basil. Fresh basil cut into ribbons. More info is below.
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.
QUICK BURRATA PIZZA RECIPE TIPS
- 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
