    Burrata Pizza Is Taking Over TikTok and You Need to Make It Immediately

    From big bowls of chopped green goddess salads and cowboy caviar to jars of spicy pickled garlic and a mouthwatering KitKat cheesecake, the foodies over on TikTok seem to have a never-ending supply of tasty tricks up their sleeves. The most recent viral TikTok recipe? A burrata pizza that will have your mouth watering the instant the dough slides into your screen. Instead of just relying on the usual shredded mozzarella for your homemade pizza, the pizza takes it up a notch by adding fresh burrata for that creamy, cheesy finish. Trust us—you’re going to want to make this one ASAP.

    What Is Burrata Pizza?

    Inspired by a video posted by Lacey, from @_lacebakes_ on TikTok, the burrata pizza is simply a cooked pizza dough, topped with marinated tomatoes and a fresh ball of burrata cheese. It’s garlicky and cheesy and makes for a perfectly elegant finish if you’re having a homemade pizza night in.

    How to Make Burrata Pizza


    • 2 cups chopped cherry tomatoes
    • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
    • 4 teaspoons minced garlic, separated
    • 4 tablesooons olive oil, separated
    • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
    • Sea salt
    • Black pepper
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
    • Pizza dough
    • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 1 ball of fresh burrata cheese


    Step 1: Get the oven ready

    Preheat the oven to 500°F. Not making the oven hot enough is a classic homemade pizza mistake you want to avoid!

    Step 2: Combine ingredients

    In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir together the cherry tomatoes and basil with 2 teaspoons of minced garlic. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and a few cracks of sea salt and black pepper. Mix together and set the bowl aside.

    Step 3: Prep the herb butter

    In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt together the butter, the rest of the olive oil and minced garlic, as well as the fresh parsley.

    Step 4: Get the pizza dough ready

    Stretch the pizza dough into a cast-iron skillet or across a pizza stone/steel.

    Step 5: Begin assembling the pizza

    Brush the herb butter mixture across the dough. Lightly sprinkle the top with mozzarella cheese. Place in the oven and bake until the pizza crust is golden and bubbly, the cheese is melted, and the herb butter mixture is sizzling on the pie. Remove to a cutting board.

    Step 6: Top it off

    Scoop the cherry tomato mixture onto the sizzling dough, leaving some room for a crust around the edges.

    Place the ball of fresh burrata cheese in the center of the pizza. You can add an extra drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper if you desire.

    Slice it up and enjoy!

    Tips for Making Burrata Pizza

    How to Make Burrata Pizza Your Own

    While the burrata pizza recipe makes for a simple tomato and cheese pizza, you can always play around with different delicious combinations. Because it wouldn’t truly be pizza night without a little variety, now would it?

    You could top the pizza with thin slices of prosciutto or pepperoni if you want to add meat. If you’re looking for something heartier—like Italian sausage or bits of meatball—you can sprinkle that onto the pizza dough so it can prebake into the crust before topping it with your tomatoes.

    Even though this burrata pizza isn’t served with a pizza sauce, you can always feel free to add it. You could skip the herb butter mixture and spread a pizza sauce instead!

    Lastly, you could even play around with the combination of cheeses on the dough before it bakes. Shredded mozzarella is always a go-to, but feel free to elevate the flavor with other popular pizza cheeses like parmesan, fontina, provolone, and even gorgonzola!

    What Happens if You Bake the Burrata?

    While this recipe doesn’t call for baking the burrata before eating it, some may prefer to bake the pizza to warm up all of the ingredients before slicing it into it. Just be careful! The burrata is creamy on the inside and can easily seep out during baking, making the pizza watery.

    Instead, if you want to have a baked burrata pizza, you can wait to add the creamy burrata cheese until the last few minutes, then bake it until the cheese is perfectly melted without causing a soggy mess.

    How to Store Burrata Pizza

    Want to store some leftover burrata pizza slices? This pizza storage container should do the trick! Place your uneaten slices into this pizza container for up to four days. If you prefer to not stack your slices on top of each other, lay them flat in a larger shallow container for the same amount of time.

    The best way to reheat your pizza is by putting the slices back in the oven. You can line a baking tray with foil or place it in a cast-iron skillet for around 10 minutes at 375°. Remember, the burrata might get a little watery, so be sure to keep an eye on that creamy cheese so your pizza doesn’t make a mess!
