Truffle, Mushroom & Burrata Pizza with Ham

 

truffle mushroom pizza with burrata and ham

On my last grocery trip, I was meandering in the cheese section, as one does, when all the sudden I stumbled upon burrata with black truffles. Of all things good in the world, burrata is really close to the top. Put some burrata on a piece of bread and it’s dinner.

Look at this glorious baby:

burrata

The package I found had two 4 oz burrata balls, so after eating the first one the instant I got home, I started thinking about possibilities for the second. I’ve posted time and time again about my love for pizza, so clearly it was an easy decision to go in that direction.

While the mushrooms and onions cook, roll out the pizza dough.

Remove the pizza stone/baking sheet from the oven and place the dough onto it.

Add the mozzarella cheese onto the dough, along with the cooked mushrooms and onions.
