Burrata cheese is a wonderous way to explore Italy's southern coastal culinary delicacies:  with a soft, chewy classic mozzarella exterior and pliable, delicate cheese curds and fresh cream inside the heart of the burrata bundle, this cheese can go a long way in convincing you of Italy's superiority in dairy delicacies.

With such a rich ingredient, you'll likely want to keep the rest of the recipes you use with burrata fairly simple to highlight and enhance the burrata, the true star of your dish.  This pizza answers just that need:  a white pizza so no tomato sauce goes even further in guaranteeing star status to your burrata.

Preparation

for 1 servings

Step

1

Of 3

Prepare the asparagus

Bring medium pot of salted water to boil.  Add asparagus for 3-4 minutes, drain and allow to cool in cold water (also to stop the cooking process).  Once they have cooled to touch, dice into pieces that are .5cm thick.

Step

2

Of 3

Assemble the Pizza

Heat oven to 190C.  Place uncooked pizza dough, already shaped (1 complete Fresh Pizza Dough), onto prepped baking sheet or pizza stone.  Cook until lightly browned, remove from heat.

Wash tomatoes - we suggest using sweet cherry tomatoes (grape tomatoes also would work nicely).  Drain mozzarella cheese, and when liquid is gone from the cheese, cube cheese and set aside.

Distribute the diced mozzarella cheese on top of the precooked pizza crust.  Slice the cleaned tomatoes in half, and add on top of the cheese.  Do the same with the sliced asparagus.  Adjust to taste with salt and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.

Cook the Pizza and finish dish

Cook in preheated oven until cooking process is complete.   The edges of your pizza should be crunchy, and the mozzarella cheese should be well-melted.

While your pizza is cooking, gently dice the Burrata cheese (use 1 Burrata weighing approximately 125 grams) with a sharp knife, and once the pizza has finished cooking, evenly distribute the diced Burrata with a spoon on the surface of the cooked pizza.  Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, cut into individual wedges, and serve hot.
