Pizza is a universally loved dish, but sometimes, breaking away from the traditional and exploring new, gourmet flavors is fun. This Fresh Fig and Burrata Pizza does just that, combining the sweetness of fresh figs with the creamy richness of burrata cheese, a drizzle of honey, and the aromatic touch of fresh basil. It’s a sophisticated take on pizza that’s perfect for a special occasion or a unique weeknight dinner. Let’s dive into this exquisite recipe.


For One 12-Inch Pizza:

  • 1 ball of pizza dough (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 cup fresh figs, sliced
  • 1 ball of burrata cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Fresh basil leaves, torn
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Flour (for dusting)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit (245 degrees Celsius). If you’re using a pizza stone, place it in the oven while it preheats.
  2. Prepare the Dough: On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough to your desired thickness, about 12 inches in diameter. Transfer the rolled dough to a piece of parchment paper for easy handling.
  3. Drizzle with Olive Oil: Brush the surface of the dough with olive oil, ensuring an even coating. This will help create a golden, crispy crust.
  4. Add the Figs: Arrange the sliced figs evenly over the pizza dough. The sweetness of the figs will balance beautifully with the other ingredients.
  5. Bake the Pizza: Carefully slide the parchment paper and pizza onto the preheated pizza stone or a baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is golden and crispy.
  6. Add the Burrata: Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool slightly. Tear the burrata cheese into pieces and distribute them evenly over the pizza. The heat from the pizza will gently melt the cheese, adding a creamy richness.
  7. Drizzle with Honey: Drizzle the honey generously over the pizza, adding a delightful sweetness that complements the figs and burrata.
  8. Garnish with Basil: Scatter the torn basil leaves over the pizza for a fresh, aromatic touch. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve and Enjoy: Slice the pizza and serve it immediately. The combination of flavors and textures in this Fresh Fig and Burrata Pizza will delight your taste buds and impress your guests.


This Fresh Fig and Burrata Pizza is a gourmet twist on a classic favorite, perfect for those who love to explore new and sophisticated flavors. The sweetness of the figs, the creamy burrata, the drizzled honey, and the fresh basil come together to create a truly memorable dish.
