Instructions

  1. Make the pizza dough: Follow the Best Pizza Dough or Thin Crust Pizza Dough recipe to prepare the dough. (This takes about 15 minutes to make and 45 minutes to rest.)
  2. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 500°F. OR preheat your pizza oven (here’s the pizza oven we use).
  3. Make the pizza sauce: Make the Easy Pizza Sauce recipe. (You’ll use about 1/3 cup for the pizza; reserve the remaining sauce and refrigerate for up to 1 week.)
  4. Bake the pizza: When the oven is ready, dust a pizza peel with cornmeal or semolina flour. (If you don’t have a pizza peel, you can use a rimless baking sheet or the back of a rimmed baking sheet. But a pizza peel is well worth the investment!) Stretch the dough into a circle; see How to Stretch Pizza Dough for instructions. Then gently place the dough onto the pizza peel. 
  5. Spread a thin layer of the pizza sauce over the dough, using about 1/4 to 1/3 cup. Add the shredded mozzarella cheese. Top with a thin layer of fresh grated Parmesan cheese and a few pinches of kosher salt.
  6. Use the pizza peel to carefully transfer the pizza onto the preheated pizza stone. Bake the pizza until the cheese and crust are nicely browned, about 3 minutes. While the pizza is baking, break the burrata into small chunks and place it in a bowl. 
  7. Add the burrata cheese: Use the pizza peel to pull the pizza out of the oven. Working quickly, spread the burrata chunks evenly over the dough. Place it back in the oven and cook 3 to 5 minutes until the cheese is melted. 
  8. Allow the pizza to cool for a minute before adding the basil on top (whole leaves, lightly torn, or thinly sliced). Slice into pieces and serve immediately.
