Blackberry Burrata Pizza

Burrata is an amazing Italian creation. In a nutshell, it is a ball of mozzarella filled with a mixture of cream and mozzarella. There are a number of ways to take advantage of its creaminess on pizzas, but this one is my favorite. Fresh basil and blackberries add a wonderfully fresh, sweet flavor that is balanced perfectly with a little olive oil and pepper. This pizza works well at any stage of the meal – whether it be an appetizer, entrée or dessert.

Servings

1 10-inch pizza

Ingredients

    • 1 10-ounce ball Artisan Fire Pizza Dough
    • 2 ounces burrata cheese, cut into thin strips
    • 6 small basil leaves
    • 6 fresh blackberries, cut in half
    • Extra virgin olive oil
    • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Prepare the outdoor pizza oven or grill for cooking pizza.

Working on a lightly-floured surface (we use Caputo ‘00 flour), form the dough into a 10-inch pizza. Distribute the cheese, followed by the basil and then the blackberries. Drizzle with olive oil.

Transfer the pizza to a pizza peel and then transfer to the oven or grill.  Cook until the cheese is melted and the crust is browned. Cooking in a hot pizza oven will take less than 3 minutes. Cooking in a conventional oven at 500⁰F or on a grill will require closer to 10 minutes.

Remove the pizza and finish it with freshly ground black pepper.
