Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Pizza dough — Ensure the dough is properly proofed and rolled out thinly for a crispy crust.
  • Burrata cheese — Use fresh and creamy burrata for the best flavor and texture.
  • Cherry tomatoes — Opt for ripe and flavorful cherry tomatoes to enhance the taste of the pizza.
  • Olive oil — Choose a high-quality extra virgin olive oil for the garlic-infused oil mixture.
  • Fresh basil — Tear the basil leaves just before garnishing to preserve their vibrant color and aroma.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a crispier crust, preheat a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven before placing the pizza on it.
  • Experiment with different herbs and spices in the garlic-infused oil mixture to add unique flavors to the pizza.
  • If burrata cheese is not available, you can substitute it with fresh mozzarella or buffalo mozzarella.
  • To enhance the flavors, drizzle a small amount of balsamic glaze over the pizza before serving.
  • Serve the pizza on a wooden board or a stylish platter to enhance the presentation.

Serving advice

Serve the Elevated Margherita Pizza as a main course for lunch or dinner. Accompany it with a fresh green salad to balance the flavors and textures. Cut the pizza into slices and serve it on individual plates for an elegant presentation.

Presentation advice

To create an artistic presentation, arrange the cherry tomato halves in a circular pattern on the pizza dough. Place the torn burrata cheese pieces in between the tomatoes, creating a visually appealing contrast. Garnish with fresh basil leaves for a pop of color.
