Summer pizza day – our first of the season! I think this time of year is my favorite for pizza making. Pizzas are so quick and easy and I love the opportunity to use fresh summer produce and herbs. The topping ideas I have brewing in my head are endless.

Also, nothing beats a roasted tomato pizza with fresh burrata cheese. I know it’s a tried and true classic, but we love to make it over and over all summer long. It’s just so delicious!

Incorporating caramelized onions and fresh herbs only adds to the deliciousness. They make the pizza feel just a little more special.

I’ve been making this pizza summer after summer for years now. The ingredients have stayed the same, though my herbs do vary, but the process has been streamlined. I think I’ve kind of perfected it!

So, so excited for you all to make this one!

Now some details

Step 1: the dough 

I use the dough recipe from the HBH Every Day cookbook. It’s my go-to and the pizza dough I use almost every week when we have pizza night.

Simply mix warm water with yeast, then add flour, bread flour, and salt. I knead the dough with a stand mixer for about 5 minutes, then let it rise for an hour or so. And then it’s ready to go, nothing fancy!

Step 2: the onions and the tomatoes

Before I add the onions and tomatoes to the pizza dough, I like to caramelize them in the oven. This really intensifies their flavor and makes them even more delicious.

Toss the onions with cherry tomatoes and big, big handfuls of fresh herbs. I use thyme and oregano with a nice pinch of chili flakes. Then I also like to add some honey. The honey helps to caramelize the onions and add a little sweetness to those roasted cherry tomatoes – totally delicious.

Step 3: assemble 

Now that we’ve pre-roasted the onions and tomatoes, we can assemble the pizza.

Gently push the dough into a nice big circle. Then add the onions and about half of the tomatoes, and then the cheese. I’ve been using a creamy gouda lately and it’s just delicious.

Finish the pizza with the remaining tomatoes.

Step 4: bake

Cook the pizza at a super high temperature, ideally on a pizza stone if you have one. It will take 10 or so minutes to cook up.

When the pizza comes out the cheese should be bubbling up around the tomatoes.

Step 5: the burrata 

Add the burrata to the hot pizza. Let the cheese sit for a few minutes to really melt into the warm pizza. Now add fresh basil and some oil. I like to do a few more chili flakes too. Then simply slice it up!

This pizza is perfect on a warm night with your favorite drink in hand, preferably shared with your favorite people. Because everyone likes a good slice of cheese pizza with friends!

This one is meant to be eaten hot, so enjoy every last bite!

Family and friends will LOVE this pizza with its crispy cheesy crust, tomatoes, pepperonis, and herbs. The cheese in the middle is super melty too! Oh, and don’t skip out on adding a little honey on top (it’s mine and Asher’s favorite). It makes every bite really, really good!

    I have made this pizza a number of times, and it is a family favourite.
    We absolutely love it!
    Dinner at our house on Friday night is a “Mystery Pizza” night.
    What it really means is that with all the choice on your web site, it is always a mystery
    as to which one we are having. Many times I open up the site and say “OK, what pizza will we have tonight!”
    I also use your pizza dough recipe, with great success.
    My wife says it is better than any store bought version.
    Thank-you for all your wonderful recipes.

    Our pizza was delicious, thank you for the recipe. Unfortunately, the juice from the tomatoes created a hole in the crust and it made a mess. Next time I am going to cut the tomatoes during their baking time to see if that helps remove some of the wetness prior to putting them on the crust.

    1. Thanks so much for making this recipe!! So sorry to hear about the hole! Glad to hear the flavors were enjoyed:) xT

    1. Hi Erin,
      Amazing!! I appreciate you giving this recipe a try and sharing your review, so glad to hear it was a winner! xx

    Like others, was a bit concerned about the amount of moisture from the roasted tomatoes. Pleasantly surprised that my dough held up, and the pizza was delicious as a result. Made no alterations, and won’t when we make this again (which will be very soon).

    1. Hey Eric,
      Happy Wednesday!!🫐🍒🍓 I’m so glad to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks for making it and your feedback! xT

    Love your recipes and have been following you for years and have all your cook books!

    The flavor was delicious of this pizza. I made it on a Kamado Joe charcoal grill set on 400 degrees. I used 16oz pizza dough, left the pizza on the grill for 20 minutes, put the burrata on and then put it back on the grill for 1 minute. It was very flavorful, only complaint I heard from my family was the toppings were falling off and that the dough was a little oily. Do you think letting the dough cook longer would prevent that? Or is there an ingredient that would hold the tomatoe/onion/garlic mixture to the dough better?

    1. Hi Carmen,
      Thanks for trying this recipe and sharing your feedback! It’s hard for me to say with the dough, grilling pizza gives a much different result than when it’s baked. Maybe try baking next time? Sorry I couldn’t be of more help! xx

        We love this pizza!! We make it every other weekend. First time we made it was at a tiny house in a Winery for our anniversary. We used their fresh herbs and added peppers they had in their garden. It is my favorite pizza EVER! I buy the Trader Joe’s pizza dough to make it a quick dinner. 10/10. I recommend it to many family members and served it to them all. Thanks once again!

    I was skeptical about how the end product would be but I am very blown away how great this pizza turns out, very simple to make, just need a bit of time (like all pizza). I also was missing the cheese and used mozzarella in a pinch, so I’m excited to make this again with the right stuff.

    1. Hi John,
      Happy Friday!!🫐🍓 I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a lot for your comment and making it! xT

    Made this tonight. Amazing. I added a bit of pesto dollops at the end (just because I love pesto). I could even taste just a hint of honey which just added to the entire flavor. Thanks for the amazing recipe

    1. Hi Sandy,
      Love to hear this!! Thanks so much for making this recipe and your feedback! Have a great day! xT
