And this is the rare moment where I post something that I actually made very recently! As in, I made it last night. I’ve been living in the past a little on this blog as of late, but not today. I was very pleased with this leftover concoction. I had two ingredients that I really needed to use and luckily, they went together perfectly – burrata and french bread. Yes! I had burrata for the first time at a really awesome Denver restaurant called Osteria Marco. Paul took me there for some kind of special occasion years ago and I still have very fond, mouth-watering memories of their pizza, meatball sliders, and especially the burrata. I always see this cheese at Trader Joe’s, but didn’t pick it up until recently.
We ate some at room temperature a few nights ago, which was pretty great. I was still craving the warm burrata with toasty bread that we had at Osteria though. I had a little can of tomato sauce that I thought I needed for some recipe and didn’t end up using so I figured I might as well make burrata french bread pizza! Melty, creamy cheese and toasty bread…heaven. A perfect, quick weeknight meal! And the perfect way to use up my nearly past-the-date cheese and few day old baguette. I seriously have the hardest time keeping baguettes around. I love having one on hand, but I think our really tiny, warm kitchen makes them go bad extra fast. I dunno. I try to remember to save part of it in the freezer, but I’m always convinced that this time I’ll be able to finish it. Well, we definitely finished these pizzas! Delish!
