It is spring, right?

Because looking out my window now you’d never guess it.

Tuesday was bright, sunny and amazing. Yesterday and today? Not amazing. Just cold and snowy. Eight inches expected by the end of the morning then a little break this afternoon and more tonight and tomorrow. Ahh, the joys of living in a place where it snows till June. And I know I say this pretty much every year come this time, but someone please send me the sun, or better yet a plane ticket to Florida (or anywhere sunny and warm). The worst part is that it’s not gonna stop. Those spring flowers that you people who live below nine thousand feet get? Yeah, we barely get those even in the summer, let alone spring. Which is a total bummer because I love flowers.

Since spring weather is nowhere to be found, I made pizza. Extra (extra) cheesy pizza.

It’s the only way to cope with snow in spring if you ask me. Ok, there are a few ways, but for today we’re just gonna focus on the pizza.

I had some help with this pizza concept from a friend of my moms. This time, not Mrs. Mooney, but Mrs. Kevesdy. Turns out my mom has friends who love to cook, which is interesting since she is really not much of a cook herself…

Also, is it weird that I text with my mom’s friends? Kind of thinking it is, but I spent a decent amount of time with them when we lived in Ohio. Plus, they make GOOD food and I always need ideas. Like always.

This white pizza is heavily inspired by one that Mrs. Kevesdy told me about. Only hers is probably a little less cheese loaded than mine and I added the asparagus because lately, I am putting it with, on, and in, pretty much everything. It is just so good right now.

It’s kind of like the saying, “if you’ve got it, flaunt it”, but instead we’re talking about asparagus, and right now its got it going on, so I am cookin it.

Ok, that was weird, but you know what I mean.

But back to the cheese, because pizza is all about the cheese (which is why I could not do a vegan diet). This little round piece of bread has four cheeses going on. Yup, four! You just can’t do a white + veggie loaded pizza without a lot of cheese. It wouldn’t be right.

I threw on some parmesan (classic), mozzarella (so melty), burrata (the best) and feta (addicting). FYI, it’s the perfect combo.

So what’s the spring part to this pizza?

Um, hello? I put a salad on a pizza and it’s so good.

Honestly, I have wanted to try fresh greens on a pizza for forever, so it just seemed like a good time.

All I did was toss some fresh arugula with some sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, feta cheese and a little drizzle of oil + balsamic. It’s the perfect topper to a cheesy pizza and if you are doubting me on that? Don’t.

No really, don’t

Also, there’s balsamic drizzle and if that + all these greens doesn’t scream spring than I do not know what does.

Of course you could always add some ice cream or meringue for dessert. Then it would definitely be a complete spring meal.

Ingredients

Pizza Dough

Toppings

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms sliced
  • 1 small bunch asparagus ends trimmed and then cut into 3rds or 4ths
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Good pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh basil chopped
  • 1 clove small garlic minced or grated
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 4-8 ounces burrata cheese
  • 4-8 ounces feta cheese crumbled
  • 2 cups fresh arugula
  • 2 tablespoons oil packed sun-dried tomatoes oil drained and reserved
  • 1 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts toasted

Balsamic Drizzle

Instructions

For the Dough:

  • In a large bowl, combine water, yeast and honey. Mix with a spoon, then let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes. Add in the flour and olive oil stirring with a spoon until the dough comes together but is still sticky. Using your hands, on a floured surface, form the dough into a ball and work the additional 1/2 cup flour into the dough if needed. You can also do all the mixing and kneading in your stand mixer with the dough hook attachment. Now rub the same bowl with olive oil, then place the dough inside, turning to coat. Cover with a towel and place in a warm place to rise for about 1 1/2 hours.

To make the Balsamic Drizzle

  • Add vinegar and brown sugar, if using, to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a very low simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, until liquid reduces by about half and is slightly syrupy. Remove from heat, pour vinegar in a bowl or glass to pour, and set aside to cool and thicken.

To assemble the Pizza

  • When the dough is ready, start assembling the pizzas. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and once hot add the mushrooms and asparagus. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the veggies are just slightly cooked and softened. Season with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Once the pizza dough is ready, lightly flour a counter. Use your hands or a rolling pin to roll the dough out until you have a flattened disk. Place the pizzas on a greased baking sheet and then use your hands to gently tug, pull and push the pizza dough into your desired shape. Drizzle at least 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the pizza dough. Add the chopped basil, garlic and parmesan, spread out evenly over the pizza. Add the mozzarella cheese and then sprinkle the veggies over the pizza. Break the burrata up over the top and then sprinkle with a little feta cheese.
  • Bake the pizza for 25-30 minutes or until the cheese is all melty and gooey.
  • Meanwhile add the arugula and sun-dried tomatoes to a bowl and toss with 1-2 tablespoons of the reserved sun-dried tomato oil, toasted pine nuts, 1 tablespoon balsamic, a handful of feta cheese and a pinch of salt and pepper, toss well and set aside until ready to use.
  • Remove the pizza from the oven and serve the arugula salad over top the pizza, or on the side. Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the pizza. Slice and EAT!

    Made this tonight! I know this is an “old” recipe. But it was amazing. Posted pics on insta. Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes. You make me seem like a decent cook when really all I do is follow your instructions. Honestly, 99% of my meals are your recipes. I would starve without you. Thank you, Tieghan!

  3. I made this tonight. I subbed Bella mushrooms for hen of the woods (maitake) ones instead. Tripled the garlic. Doubled the salad (the photo looks like spinach? Definitely used arugula). Made this on the grill. Oh man. This is just the best ever. Seriously. This is the pizza to win any pizza contest there might be. Make this immediately.

  4. I love cheese but never hard of burrata chees where can I find it…I live in small rural town in Alabama…but am close to city…or is there a substitute for the burrata?

  6. This is a fabulous blog, the pictures are so beautiful! I want to try these recipes, but I know they won’t come out as well =)

  7. I have been wanting to try burrata but didn’t really know what to do with it — this is amazing. What gorgeous pictures! And all the flavors! I have never really liked sun-dried tomatoes, but I know they are good on this. Can you taste a picture? If you can, I know you have a hit here. I can’t wait to try this.

  8. THIS post is why I found you (pinterest). I just love your blog, your writing style, and the pictures you take. You can see the labor of love that is going into this all. I am looking through all of your posts now and I am trying to decide if you’re suddenly my favorite food blogger. I have a few select I follow closely and you are now in that rotation. I can’t believe I haven’t found you before but now that I have I know I am going to have one happy and well fed hubby.

  10. OMG this is mouthwateringly good looking just from the photos. So getting pinned onto my pizza board for later!

  11. Teighan!!!I am eating this right now and it is soooo good!! I wasn’t sure how to make the balsamic drizzle so I made it kind of like balsamic reduction so it is a bit sweet and it is the perfect touch! I made half with mozzarella cheese and the other half with just goat cheese and they are both delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. So sorry about the drizzle, I just fixed the recipe.

      I am so excited you love this and the goat cheese sounds awesome!

  14. This is freaking genius!! I love the drizzle…and the arugula…and the SPRING-NESS! So awesome.

  15. This looks phenomenal! Burratta might be one of my favorite things on the planet…nope, that was not an exaggeration; I love it that much. What a great combination of flavors!

  16. Goodness gracious. First off, this pizza is gorgeous. That balsamic drizzle is so pretty! Secondly, the cheese – YES. I could never be true to a vegan diet because of cheese either!

  17. That is one fancy and delicious-looking pizza! It really puts to shame the pizza I just had for lunch…

  18. Fabulous idea to add a ‘salad’ to the top of a pizza after baking, Tieghan! I might just steal that idea!

  19. Yes to salad on top of pizza! I would totally eat more salads if they always came on pizza. Love that balsamic drizzle! Your photos are so gorgeous and I’m in love with them. 🙂

  20. Love arugula on pizza! And that balsamic drizzle looks insanely thick and awesome! Love that shot with the red pepper flakes mid air!
