Feeling like pizza? This marinara, garlic, & burrata pizza is my go-to winter pizza. No need for fresh herbs or veggies... Just grab some garlic, burrata, & a jar of your favorite marinara. Plus, I'm sharing how to get your pizza perfectly crispy AND my favorite pizza topping combos.
Marinara, Garlic, & Burrata Pizza
- 1 pizza dough uses one batch of my 72-hour pizza dough
- 1/2 jar marinara
- 8 cloves garlic sliced on a mandolin
- 4 oz burrata
- Preheat your oven to 550 degrees. I recommend a baking steel, but if you don't have one, just cook your pizza on a cookie sheet for a few minutes longer.
- Prepare your dough per the package or per the recipe if you made your own. Spread it out on parchment paper if you don't have experience with pizza dough. If you have experience, flour your pizza peel and stretch your dough.
- Lay down the marinara evenly. Go as close to the edges of the dough as you feel comfortable.
- Use 2 cloves of garlic per pizza.
- Evenly space 1 oz. of the burrata by ripping and spreading it on the pizza.
- Cook 3 minutes rotating 180 degrees half way through. Then turn the broiler on high, open the oven, and continue cooking 2-3 minutes.
- Repeat for the other 3 pizzas.
Want to make your own pizza dough?
I love making my own pizza dough. My favorite recipe takes 72 hours of resting time, but don't let that scare you. The actual time you have to put in is only about 10 minutes. But you do have to plan to make it 3 days in advance!
How do you get a crispy bottom on your pizza?
I use a baking steel in my oven. It absorbs the heat from the oven, but faster and gets hotter. This allows for your pizza to bake quickly and get that crispy bottom. Just cook per the instructions in this recipe and you will be good to go...no soggy bottom here!
Why marinara, garlic, & burrata?
Pizza is good with almost anything on it. Unfortunately, many of my other favorites have fresh herbs and veggies so I cannot make them in the winter. This favorite can be made all year round!
How to prep your pizza dough...
Using my pizza dough recipe, you will need to prep your dough 3 days in advance. To start, mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Then, knead for 2-3 minutes, cover, and let sit for 1 day. Finally, divide the dough into 4 parts and refrigerate for 2 days.
Important tip: make sure to take your dough out of the refrigerator at least 1 hour before use.
