Yield: 3 servings (see note)


  • ¾ pound 350 g pizza dough, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 pound 454 g cherry tomatoes (about 3 cups)
  • 1 ¼ cups 130 g shredded low moisture mozzarella
  • 4 tablespoons crushed tomatoes with basil (from a can)
  • 1 ball burrata (optional)
  • Fresh basil, for serving


  • Preheat oven to 450 °F (230 °C), or to 425 °F (220 °C) if using a fan-oven.
  • On a lightly floured surface, push or roll the pizza dough out until it fits the baking sheet, about 10x14 inch (26x36 cm). If you stretch the dough by hand, working from the center out, you can leave a rim.
  • Place the pizza dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Spread the dough with crushed tomatoes. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, then top with cherry tomatoes.
  • Transfer the pizza to the preheated oven and bake until the cheese has melted, the crust is golden, and the tomatoes are bursting, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove pizza from the oven. Top with torn burrata and fresh basil. Enjoy!


How many servings?
This pizza will yield 1 baking sheet. I usually stretch the pizza to 10x14-inch or 26x36 cm. It’s enough for 3 hungry people or 4-5 people if you are only snacking or enjoy it with a big side salad.
