How To Use Burrata On Pizza

How To Use Burrata On Pizza

I am not convinced by the findings of the love language test that I took not long ago. It wasn't Burrata Pizza from Burrata House that showed up on my score. 

The luscious Burrata cheese from Burrata House used in this Burrata Salad will entice you like no other cheese.

Rich and creamy, it's similar to Ricotta Pizza, and it produces the best pizza ever, provided you can hold your breath long enough to spread it over a pizza dough and bake it.

Both the recipe and the mental state go into making this Burrata pizza. You are free to use or discard the toppings that I have listed. Our go-to pizza sauce is tomato-based, but you can easily create a pesto Burrata pizza with a different topping.OR chose not to. Put together a pizza with tomato sauce, Burrata, and pesto. A Burrata pizza from Burrata House makes you feel like you're getting your fill of everything.

A few essential pointers for making delicious Burrata pizzas are also offered. Refrain from piling on too many toppings to a traditional Italian pizza like this one. I will repeat this below for emphasis.

We love to top our pizzas. Moderation is vital when it comes to Burrata pizza. Let the Burrata House take the front stage. Flatbread Pizza allows you to go wild with the toppings, so there's no need to be afraid.

Some blistered cherry tomatoes, please. A few rocket leaves and maybe some prosciutto. If you really must, drizzle with balsamic reduction. Remain basic and uncomplicated. The result will be a crispy, chewy crust topped with pure Burrata that is velvety smooth, slightly sweet, and sober.

What is Burrata?

Imagine Burrata as a gourmet version of mozzarella. Fresh mozzarella, a semi-soft Italian cheese produced from cow or (deliciously) water buffalo milk, is the first ingredient.

Fresh mozzarella is shaped into a pouch with highly soft mozzarella and cream to make Burrata. I would eat it daily if I were queen because it is a luxury.

Where To Buy Burrata?

Thankfully, Burrata cheese from Burrata House has finally reached grocery stores throughout the United States, satisfying our cheesy cravings. To get it, inquire if your local shop doesn't have it. The requests will probably lead to more excellent distribution if they don't have it now.

When I was younger, Burrata was only found in the best Italian restaurants in Los Angeles or bigger cities. When I had my first Burrata pizza in Los Angeles, I would get it whenever I could. Having discovered that Burrata is so easy to get at the grocery, I can now create my Burrata pizza at home, and I still order it whenever possible.

How To Make Whole Burrata Pizza 

Counting the salt we use, only three ingredients are needed for this pizza. Stretching the dough, topping it up, and baking it is a breeze once you have the Burrata cheese.

The Core Ingredients

The Burrata:

The dessert's shining star. We can get it at the grocery store where we usually shop—looking to take it up a notch? I saw a recipe for handmade Burrata in Food and Wine and bookmarked it for when I have a leisurely Sunday.

Pizza Dough:

We love our whole wheat pizza dough because it's so simple and forgiving, but you can also buy the premade pizza dough or use naan instead of a traditional crust. Premade pizza dough is now available at Trader Joe's and many other supermarkets. This blistered, chewy crust is what we're going for, not the odd dough on the inside/stiff on the outside texture and lacklustre flavour of the pizza dough that you'll find in the can with the cinnamon rolls and cookies.

Dipping Sauce:

We buy our tomato sauce from the supermarket since I've tried making it from scratch and thought it wasn't worth the effort—substitute garlic sauce for pesto for a Burrata pizza.

Parmesan Cheese. 

Kosher Salt:
Be sure to add a little sprinkling before baking. It enhances the Buratta's flavour.

Burrata Pizza Topping Ideas

Sweet Basil with Cherry Tomatoes:

Traditional Caprese ideas will always be a hit. To avoid over-mushiness, cut the cherry tomatoes in half. To maintain the flavour of the fresh basil, add it after the pizza has baked.

Lettuce with Prosciutto:

Put both on the pizza in the last minute or two of baking, or wait until it's thoroughly cooked and then sprinkle it on top. Letting the prosciutto cool to room temperature before adding it helps it heat a little, but you can also feel the warmth from the pizza.

A Pinch Of Some Red Pepper Flakes:

The Burrata pizza becomes even more enticing with a hint of spice.

Splash of Balsamic:

You will feel like a gourmet with only a hint of drizzle.

Crispy Garlic:

This pizza will be elevated to the next level with roasted garlic. Toss the roasted garlic pieces evenly over the pizza just before you apply the sauce.

Garlic, when roasted: 

To begin, pin the garlic head firmly in place and cut off the top 1/2 inch, revealing some of the cloves. Arrange the garlic head in the middle of an aluminium foil sheet. Add a pinch of salt, some pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. To create a neat bundle, fold up the edges of the foil and place it over the garlic head. Put the package in a small baking dish. To soften the cloves, roast them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about one hour. Once taken off, set aside to cool entirely. After removing the garlic cloves, crush them and sprinkle them over the pizza.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to enjoy Burrata cheese on pizza?

In the pizza centre, set the fresh Burrata cheese ball. Add olive oil, salt, and pepper if you'd like. Pare, slice, and savour!

Does Burrata need to be melted?

It is possible to melt Burrata cheese, but be warned that it will become quite watery. So, only use it melted in recipes where the addition of liquid won't change the flavour.

Would Burrata work similarly to mozzarella?

Of course! Since fresh mozzarella is less expensive than Burrata and Burrata loses its distinctive contrasting textures when melted, it is a preferable choice for cooking dishes like pizza, where the cheese will be dissolved. Keep Burrata for when you want to savour its creamy, luscious insides—either eaten whole or served as is.
