Pear, Burrata & Blackberry Pizza
Click here for my Pizza Dough Recipe
- 2-3 sliced pears thinkly-sliced is best
- 1 container blackberries cut in half
- 1 whole shallot cut into thin strips
- 1 ball Burrata cheese
- 1 tub ricotta cheese 15oz
- 1 bunch Arugula for garnish
- 1 piece parmesa grated, for garnish
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Pizza cooks well under hot heat.
Stretch out a thin layer of pizza dough to desired thickness on a lightly greased pizza pan. Add a layer of the béchamel sauce and ricotta cheese. Scatter desired amount of shallots, pears and blackberries evenly on the pizza. Keep note – more fresh pear and blackberries will be added after the pizza is cooked.
**Note:If you would like the pizza to be more cheesy, go ahead and add a bit of mozzarella.
Throw the pizza into the oven and cook until the crust is golden brown and the top of the pizza is well cooked. Approximately 10-15 minutes depending on oven.
** Note: If you would like a crunchier crust, precook the pizza dough in the oven for about 5-10 minutes before adding the toppings.
Once cooked, add fresh slices of pear, fresh blackberries (halved) and chunks of burrata. Garnish with arugula and salt & pepper to taste.
Béchamel Sauce Directions:
In a saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour and continue to stir until it’s well incorporated (don’t let it brown). This should take about 1-2 minutes. Slowly add milk and continue to stir until sauce thickens to desired thickness. Bring to a slight boil, season with salt and pepper, lower heat and let cool.
This looks delicious, Thea! Love blackberry season and I will be trying this for sure!
