This gorgeous pizza features an usual and crowd-pleasing combination of sweet summer stone fruit, salty prosciutto, vibrant fresh basil, and pillowy pockets of burrata cheese. Finished with a decadent drizzle of tangy balsamic glaze, it will keep you coming back slice after slice. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Jamie Vespa, MS, RD.


  • 16 oz. refrigerated pizza dough (1 ball fresh pizza dough)
  • flour (for rolling)
  • 1/2 cup refrigerated basil pesto
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (low-moisture)
  • 1/2 cup red onion (thinly sliced about 1/8 inch thick)
  • 1 peach (or nectarine, medium, or 2 small apricots, pitted and sliced about 1/3 inch thick)
  • 4 oz. burrata (cheese, or fresh mozzarella)
  • 2 oz. thin-sliced prosciutto
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (small; or tear larger leaves)
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic reduction (also called balsamic glaze)

    1. Let pizza dough sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
    2. When ready to roll out the dough, preheat oven to 500ºF. Place a pizza stone or sheet pan in the oven while it preheats. Gently start pulling dough from all sides to gradually expand it to about 6 inches in diameter. (If you’re too aggressive, the dough could tear.)
    3. Set a large piece of parchment paper about 14 inches squares on a work surface, sprinkle with flour, and place dough on top. Use a rolling pin to roll out dough, starting in the center and working outward toward the edges but not rolling over them, to create a round about 12 inches wide and ¼ to ⅓ inch thick. If dough sticks to rolling pin, sprinkle it with a little flour. Pierce dough multiple times with a fork to help prevent it from bubbling up as it bakes.

    It turned out great. I separately crisped the prosciutto before adding it.

    So. Good! I kept ingredients all the same, and it was incredible! Do not forget the balsamic glaze. You need something to cut through the very strong savory and salty flavors of the pizza. I did, however, make some process mods. First, I prepared the pizza on a silicone mat while the pizza stone preheated with the oven. Second, I set the temp to 450 not 500. When the oven was heated I set the mat on top of the hot pizza stone for 10 mins. After 10 mins, I added the prosciutto and basil and cooked for 3 more mins. Finally, added burrata, and baked for 3 more mins. Added glaze after cooking. OMG. It was so golden and so crisp! I wasn't sure if that would occur with use of the silicone mat but yes. Yes it did! Did I set the smoke detector off? Yes, yes I did! 😂
