Easy, homemade Burrata Pizza with Prosciutto. You will never look at pizza the same way.
The summers that I remember are the ones that took place twenty plus years ago.
It was when you could hop on your bike and travel 3 to 4 miles without your parents anxiously biting away their nails to see if you were OK. It was when you would have late-night prank calls to boys or toilet papering their house. It was having friends over to swim and coming up with synchronized swim routines so that your parents could watch all your hard work. It was going to theme parks and wasting away your parent’s hard-earned money so you could have the time of your life for that one day. It was having sleepovers and putting your friend’s dad’s underwear in the freezer. It was building a blanket fort in your house so big that it covered the entire room.
Those were the good ole’ times that I remember. I don’t even know if kids still do these things?
Life is so serious now, or maybe it always was and we didn’t have to pay attention to the “adult things” in life.
Another childhood memory is pizza. We didn’t eat a lot of it and if we did, we had to order from the only pizza joint in town, Pizza Hut. It wasn’t until college or after where I found my love for experimenting with pizza toppings. I seemed to play it safe when I was younger with cheese and hamburger. Now I want to have fun with my pizza and try all different combos with vegetables and sauces.
This is where my new found love for burrata comes into play. I can’t get enough of this stuff and I want it even more since there isn’t a single store in my city that carries it. This is a simple burrata pizza recipe and I wanted it to be minimalistic. Let all the flavors speak for themselves so it allows you to fall in love with every single bite you have.
You might notice that my pizza is cut into squares. It makes me feel like I’m eating less or not grabbing as much when I’m putting down a couple of squares of pizza.
