Burrata & Zucchini Flower Pizza

At My Husband Makes Pies, we’re passionate about breaking the boundaries of traditional pizza toppings. Today, we’re thrilled to introduce the beautiful combination of burrata cheese, zucchini flowers, and sliced garlic.

Zucchini flowers, often overlooked, have a subtle and slightly sweet flavour. They offer a tender bite and their vibrant yellow petals can truly enhance any dish visually. Burrata cheese, filled with stracciatella, which is a blend of mozzarella and cream, has a wonderfully smooth texture that brings a lavish element to the pizza. The addition of garlic nicely complements the sweetness of zucchini flowers and the creaminess of the burrata.

This fusion of burrata cheese, zucchini flowers, and garlic creates a delicate yet well-balanced flavour profile that is genuinely delectable. The addition of crunchy cucumber and fresh spring onion adds a refreshing twist, enhancing the flavour and overall taste experience. The final sprinkle of chives and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil complete this masterpiece.

Servings 2 people


  • Outdoor Pizza Oven, Pizza Steel, or Stone (if using a home oven)
  • 1 Pizza Peel
  • 1 sauce ladle
  • 1 wooden chopping board or peel for prep and serving


  • 1 pizza dough ball
  • 1 ½ – 2 ladle of pizza sauce
  • Burrata cheese
  • 6 – 8 Zucchini flowers
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • Spring onion
  • Diced cucumber
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • Prepare Dough: Follow any of our dough recipes. You will need to prepare the dough at least 24 hours ahead of time.
  • Prepare Sauce: We recommend our standard pizza sauce which is versatile, simple to make and is perfect for Neapolitan style pizzas. Spice up this sauce however you like, remember the best part about making pizza is the creative process!
  • Prepare Garlic: Thinly slice your garlic cloves, set aside ready for assembly.
  • Prepare Spring Onion: Slice your spring onion, set aside ready for assembly.
  • Prepare Zucchini Flowers: Wash your zucchini flowers, brush gently with olive oil and set aside for assembly.
  • Prepare Cucumber: Dice your cucumber into cubes, set aside.
  • Preheat Oven:
    If using an outdoor pizza like an Ooni pizza oven, aim for a temperature of 450-500°C at the center of your pizza stone. Use an infrared thermometer to ensure accuracy. It should take around 25-30 minutes to reach temperature.
    For a home oven, using a pizza steel or stone, place the stone or steel inside the oven and preheat to the highest temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare Base: On a lightly floured surface, stretch out the dough by hand according to the steps outlined in our dough recipe. Once you're happy with the shape of the base, lightly dust your pizza peel and transfer the dough onto the peel.
  • Assemble Pizza: To start assembling your pizza, begin by spreading 1 and a ½ to 2 ladles of sauce (slightly more than you would for a regular pizza with cheese and other toppings) in a circular motion. Start from the center of the dough and work your way outwards. Next, sprinkle the sliced garlic evenly over the sauce. Arrange the zucchini flowers around the edges of the pizza, as the burrata will be added to the center of the pizza after baking.
  • Bake Your Pizza:
    If you're using an outdoor pizza oven, launch the pizza into the oven and bake for 60-90 seconds. Keep an eye on the pie and rotate every 10-15 seconds to ensure even cooking and to avoid burning.
    For a home oven with a pizza steel or stone, the bake time should be around 7-10 minutes.
  • Post-Bake Assembly: Once the pizza is ready, remove it from the oven and place it on a serving board. Position the burrata in the center of the pizza, and then sprinkle the chopped chives, spring onion and diced cucumber on top according to your preference. Finally, finish off with a light drizzle of olive oil.
  • Serving: To serve, make two cuts in the burrata in a cross pattern using a sharp knife, then spread the creamy stracciatella across the pizza. If you prefer, sprinkle a bit of sea salt over the burrata. Enjoy your homemade Burrata & Zucchini Flower Pizza!
