Burrata, gorgonzola, kale, mushrooms, garlic…let’s just say this may very well be one of my favorite pizza recipes! I massaged the vegetables w/ black truffle glaze #ad and then layered that onto a homemade dough. The truffle glaze added the perfect touch of sweetness and truffle flavor, and paired so well with the gorgonzola! ⠀ 🍕 ⠀ Do you have any tricks for making homemade pizza reach perfection? Some of mine include using a pizza pan, going for the highest possible oven temp, and not over-layering ingredients (makes for soggy pizza) ⠀ —⠀ What you need: ⠀ – 1-lb pizza dough (see comments for homemade recipe- text didn’t fit 😑)⠀ – 1 1/2 cups tuscan kale, finely chopped ⠀ – 3/4 cup mushrooms, chopped ⠀ – 4 cloves garlic, minced ⠀ – 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano ⠀ – Pinch of salt⠀ – 1 tablespoon Olive Oil ⠀ – 1 tablespoon Black Truffle Glaze or balsamic vinegar – 1/4 cup gorgonzola cheese⠀ – 4 ounces of ricotta or burrata cheese ⠀ ⠀ What you do: ⠀ – Preheat the oven to as high as it goes (ours went up to 550F)⠀ – Roll out your dough into a 10-12” pizza crust, and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet⠀ – Add the kale, mushrooms, garlic, oregano, salt, olive oil and truffle glaze to a bowl. ⠀ – Massage together and set aside.⠀ – Add the gorgonzola cheese to the dough, and then add the massaged kale mix. ⠀ – Brush the crust with olive oil, and pop into the oven for 8-10 minutes.⠀ – Then add the cheese and cook for another 2-3 minutes.⠀ – Enjoy with your favorite toppings!

Homemade Pizza Dough

  1. Mix the flour, yeast, and salt together in a bowl. Using a metal spoon, mix in the water and oil until all ingredients are worked in together.
  2. Then use your hands to knead the dough into a ball.
  3. The dough should be sticky enough to stick to the bottom of the bowl, but not too sticky to where it’s staying on your hands.
  4. You can add a few drops of cold water as needed, to better work the dough.
  5. Add the pizza dough to a clean bowl, cover the bowl with plastic, and allow to rise for 1-2 hours.

  6. Remove the dough from the bowl and brush with olive oil. You can either use it right now, store in the fridge for a couple days, or freeze until you’re ready to use!
