Burrata, Persimmon, and Caramelized Onion Pizza


They arrived. Shaped like a tomato. Plump, coral rounds with thick, stiff leaves.

this is [the most wonderful time of the year]

/ prosciutto ribbons, rendered fat / thyme-y red onions cooked down in their sugars like jam / then,

creamy, white burrata plop!

Steam, fresh out of the oven to meet chive confetti and shaved parm.

We made it past all the rest of it. Nowhere to go but where we are going, you know.

Thank goodness there are persimmons along the way. One Year: Hibiscus Herbal Tea Blend

Burrata, Persimmon, and Caramelized Onion Pizza
Makes one pizza

ONIONS*:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced
1/2 tsp dried thyme
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

PIZZA:
16 oz pizza dough
1 tbsp cornmeal
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp granulated sugar
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 Fuyu persimmon
7-8 slices prosciutto
1/4 cup caramelized onions

To serve: freshly chopped chives, parmesan shavings, freshly ground black pepper

ONIONS:
In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add red onion, thyme, sea salt, and black pepper, stirring to coat. Let the onions brown and caramelize, stirring occasionally. Periodically add water by the tablespoonful to scrape the brown bits from the pan, until the onions are jammy and sweet (about 20 minutes).

PIZZA:
Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and place a rack in the center of the oven. Coat baking sheet with cornmeal. On a counter or cutting board, use oiled fingertips to pull, stretch, nudge and press the dough into a thin rectangle. Transfer to the baking sheet and sprinkle with sugar, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Bake for 5 minutes, until poofed and slightly golden. Evenly sprinkle with persimmons, caramelized onions, and prosciutto, and bake for another five minutes. Break the burrata into pieces and cover the pizza before baking for another 3 minutes, until the burrata has just melted. Out of the oven, top with chives, part, and freshly ground black pepper. Slice into squares and enjoy, omg

*This makes more than is necessary for the pizza. You’re welcome.
