I have been craving pizza for weeks, and we picked up some burrata at the farmer’s market on Sunday, so we had to make pizza with it.
For the dough, you can buy some pre-made from the store. We used The Pioneer Woman’s recipe. I have tried others before, but they did not rise as successfully.
To make the sauce, I simmered half of an onion (diced), 3 cloves of garlic, 1 large can of whole peeled tomatoes (pureed in the food processor), a pinch of sugar, salt, pepper, oregano, olive oil, and butter, for an hour. You can also use a jarred marinara.
We made a few different types of pizza, using a mix of the following toppings:
- Shredded mozzarella
- Jalapeno-infused olive oil, jalapenos
- Sweet Italian chicken sausage
- Red onion
- Fresh basil
They were delicious! We love thin-crust pizza, so we baked them at 500 degrees for 12 minutes and they were crisp and delightful. If you are making yours thin-crust, resist the urge to use a ton of sauce, cheese, and toppings. You will end up with soggy pizza!
