Pizza with shaved Brussels sprouts, burrata and dried lemon zest

Pizza with shaved Brussels sprouts and burrata-dried lemon zest

Brussels sprouts and Italian burrata (the extra-soft cheese made with mozzarella and cream) are perfect partners for pizza. Indeed, the light burrata melts all over the Brussels, bringing a most luxurious texture to the pie.

However, both the burrata and Brussels are not exactly strongly flavored on their own, so they’re spiked with dried lemon zest and salty Pecorino Romano shavings – a marvelous contrast to the soft mellow cheese and the crunchy Brussels.

The best part, though, is that once the dough is made, it’ll only take a few minutes to prepare the toppings – making this mouthwatering pizza a Friday night favorite in our household.

Love this!! I think brussels sprouts often don’t get the respect they deserve! This cheesy pizza would definitely convince any sprouts haters! :)
