Burrata Pizza

Once the pizza is cooked I finish it with plenty of additional Parmesan, a homemade herb oil and the piece de resistance: creamy burrata broken up into pieces. The cold cheese contrasts with the hot pizza.

For the herb oil:

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

For the pizza:

  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough
  • Semolina flour, as needed
  • Cornmeal, as needed
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cup pizza sauce, divided
  • ¼ cup torn basil leaves, divided
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 8 ounces burrata cheese, divided


For the herb oil:

  • In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil, basil, oregano and salt. Set aside until ready to use.

For the pizza:

  • Place pizza stone on a grill or in the oven and heat to 500ºF (260ºC).
  • Divide the dough in half. Lightly flour a work surface with semolina flour, working one half at a time, press out each half of the dough into a 10” (25cm) circle. The dough should be fairly thin. Generously spread cornmeal over the pizza peel then add the dough on top.
  • Work one pizza at a time. Use a pizza peel to slide the dough onto the pizza stone. Rub half the olive oil over the dough and cook until the crust is a pale brown and bubbly, about 6 minutes.
  • Spread pizza sauce evenly over the pizza, leaving about 1” (2.5cm) around the edges for the crust. Top with basil leaves and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese. Continue to cook until the crust is golden brown and the Parmesan has melted, about an additional 6 minutes.
  • Transfer the pizza to a cooling rack so the crust remains crisp. Top with an additional ¼ cup Parmesan cheese followed by pieces of torn burrata.
  • Garnish with a drizzle of the herb oil then cut into pieces and serve. Repeat with the remaining pizza dough and toppings.
