What is on a peach burrata pizza?
What is on this peach burrata pizza? Here are the main ingredients on this peach burrata pizza.
- Olive oil. A thin layer of olive oil is spread over the pizza crust before any of the other toppings are added. The olive oil is the main sauce that is used in the pizza so you should use a high quality olive oil that has a smooth, buttery flavor such as this California Olive Ranch olive oil.
- Mozzarella cheese. Some mozzarella cheese is added on top the olive oil. The mozzarella cheese is added to the pizza before it is cooked. The burrata cheese, on the other hand, is not added to the pizza until it is done cooking.
- Peaches. White peaches are sliced into relatively thin slices then layered on top of the mozzarella cheese. The peaches are cooked along with the pizza crust to enhance their sweet flavor.
- Shallots. Shallots are sliced into paper thin slices then added to the pizza before it is put in the oven. The shallots can be added to the pizza raw, there is no need to pre-cook them.
- Arugula. After the pizza base is done cooking, an arugula salad is added on top of the pizza base. The slight bitterness of the arugula provides a nice contrast to the sweet flavor of the peaches. The pizza should be left to cook for a few minutes before the arugula is added so that the heat from the pizza does not wilt the arugula.
- Burrata cheese. A ball of burrata cheese is added to the bed of arugula that is placed on top of this pizza. Just like the arugula, the burrata should be added after the pizza is done cooking.
- Balsamic glaze. A balsamic glaze is added on top of the arugula salad. The acidity of the balsamic glaze provides a nice contrast to the creamy flavor of the burrata cheese and the sweet flavor of the peaches. Make sure to use a concentrated glaze rather than straight balsamic vinegar. This balsamic glaze by Fini is our number one choice when it comes to balsamic glaze.
- Salt & pepper. Finally, the arugula salad is topped with some salt and pepper to finish this pizza off.
How do you make a peach burrata pizza?
How do you make a peach burrata pizza? Here is how to make this peach burrata pizza.
- Spread out the pizza crust. The first thing you need to do in order to make this peach burrata pizza is spread out your pizza dough and shape the pizza crust. If your pizza dough is sticky, you may need to cover your hands in flour or olive oil to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands. If you do not make homemade pizza much, we recommend shaping the pizza crust on a sheet of parchment paper that can be transferred to a baking sheet or pizza stone.
- Slice the peaches and shallots. After you spread out the pizza crust, you should slice the peaches and shallots. The peaches will be soft, so you will need a sharp knife to get clean slices without crushing the peaches. We use this chef’s knife by Victorinox and it is our favorite general purpose kitchen knife.
- Add the olive oil and mozzarella cheese. After you slice the peaches and shallots, it is time to add the olive oil and mozzarella cheese to the pizza base. Spread a thin layer of olive oil over the pizza base then layer the mozzarella cheese on top of the olive oil. Leave a rim around the edges that does not have toppings.
- Add the peaches and shallots. After you add the mozzarella cheese to the pizza crust, layer the sliced peaches and shallots on top of the mozzarella cheese. Try to distribute the peaches and shallots evenly across the pizza.
- Cook the pizza. Once the peaches and shallots have been added, it is time to cook the pizza. The pizza should be cooked for 15 – 18 minutes at 475 degrees until the crust turns a nice golden brown around the edges. Make sure not to add the arugula, burrata, or balsamic glaze to the pizza until after it is done cooking.
- Add the arugula salad. After the pizza is done cooking, let it cool for a few minutes before adding the arugula salad to the pizza. Place a bed of arugula in the center of the pizza then top it with burrata cheese, salt, and pepper. Drizzle some balsamic glaze over the pizza.
How do you store leftover peach burrata pizza?
How do you store leftover peach burrata pizza? This peach burrata pizza can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days if it is wrapped up in cling wrap or stored in an airtight food storage container. For best results, you should store the arugula and burrata separately from the rest of the pizza. The arugula will absorb water from the other ingredients in the pizza and wilt if it is stored on the pizza. The burrata, on the other hand, will release water that will soak into the pizza crust and make it soggy.
If you plan to have leftover pizza, then we recommend waiting to add the arugula, burrata, and balsamic glaze until you are ready to eat the pizza. For example, if you only plan to eat half the pizza, then we recommend waiting to add the arugula and burrata salt to the second half of the pizza until it is time to eat it.
How do you reheat leftover peach burrata pizza?
How do you reheat a leftover peach burrata pizza? The first thing you should do before you reheat a peach burrata pizza is make sure that you remove the arugula and burrata from the pizza base. The arugula will wilt if it is heated and the burrata will release liquids that will make the pizza crust soggy.
After you remove the burrata and arugula from your pizza crust, you have a few options for reheating the peach burrata pizza. Here is how we recommend reheating leftover peach burrata pizza.
- In the oven. For best results, we recommend reheating your pizza in the oven. Pizza that is reheated in the oven will have a crispier crust than pizza that is reheated using another method. You can cook your pizza in the oven at 400 degrees for about 5 – 7 minutes to reheat your pizza. When the pizza is done, the cheese should be melted and the crust should be warm throughout.
- In the microwave. If you want to get your pizza heated up as fast as possible, then you can also reheat your pizza in the microwave. Just be warned that the pizza crust will not be as crispy if it is reheated in the microwave. We recommend cooking your pizza on full heat for 45 – 75 seconds until the cheese is fully melted and the crust is heated throughout.
Peach burrata pizza
- 9 oz gluten free pizza dough
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup arugula
- 1 white peach
- 1 shallot (medium sized)
- 1 ball burrata cheese
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp salt
- balsamic glaze
- Preheat your oven to 475. If you are using a pizza stone or pizza steel, put it in the oven before turning the oven on to preheat.
- Slice the shallots into thin slices. Slice the peaches into slices that are around 1/2 inch thick.
- Roll the pizza crust out so that it is 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. We recommend shaping the pizza crust on a sheet of parchment paper that can be transferred to a baking sheet or pizza stone for cooking. If your pizza dough is sticky, you will need to cover your hands in flour or olive oil to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands.
- Spread a thin layer of olive oil over the top of the pizza. Leave a rim of pizza dough without olive oil around the edge of the pizza for the crust.
- Spread the mozzarella cheese over the top of the pizza then spread the peaches and shallots out over the top of the pizza.
- Bake the pizza at 475 degrees for 15 – 18 minutes or until the edges of the crust lightly brown.
- Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before adding the arugula salad. After the pizza has cooled, add the arugula and burrata in the center of the pizza then top the arugula salad with salt, pepper, and a balsamic drizzle.
Substitutions for peach burrata pizza
- Shallots. If you cannot find shallots, then you can also use onions in place of the shallots. If you are using a full onion then you will only need to use a small piece of the onion. About 1/4 of a small onion or 1/6 of a large onion should be enough.
