Burrata Caramelized Onion and Prosciutto Pizza

Burrata Prosciutto and Carmelized Onion Pizza www.bellalimento.com

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of going on a media trip to Vidalia, Georgia. Being a Georgia Peach myself I was naturally over the moon excited about seeing these sweet spheres in their natural habitat. One of the things I love about my job is visiting farms, getting to know the actual farmers and seeing how much love and attention goes into growing, harvesting and packaging the food that ends up in our grocery bags and on our kitchen tables (or breakfast bar because yeah sometimes the table is covered in photography equipment. It happens).

Vidalia Onions are only available for a short time during the year and that time is NOW. Next time you’re in your favorite grocery, grab a bag (or two) and take them home. You might even want to try this pretty spectacular pizza with caramelized Vidalia onion and fig preserves as its base. Yep Yep. That alone would make an amazing appetizer but we didn’t want to stop there we wanted pizza and pressed on. Adding a combination of mozzarella, burrata (my cheese kryptonite I can’t resist it even if I tried which is futile so I don’t) and then adding our salty element of prosciutto and peppery arugula. It’s a pretty ridiculous flavor combination that explodes in your mouth.

    We make our own vegetable and chicken broths, and when cooking, sauteing, caramelizing onions, we cook them slow and low adding a little broth at a time, cook it down, then add more until we’re pleased, and/or starving and can’t take much more teasing! lol
