Recipe for: Bacon & Burrata Naan Pizzetta
|4 pieces||naan bread|
|6 Tbs||good quality extra-virgin olive oil, divided|
|kosher salt and coarse black pepper|
|1/2 half||crushed red pepper flakes|
|4 cups||multicolor tomatoes, chopped|
|1 medium||garlic clove, minced|
|1 Tbs||fresh oregano or thyme, chopped|
|8 oz.||burrata (or substitute good quality fresh mozzarella)|
|6 slices||cooked bacon, crumbled|
|1 small bunch||thin spring onions (or substitute scallions), bulbs trimmed, halved, and thinly sliced into strips|
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Place the naan onto a baking sheet, and drizzle with two tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until lightly golden and crisp (10 to 12 minutes).
3. In a large sauté pan, heat two tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the crushed red pepper flakes and the tomatoes, and season generously with salt and pepper. Once the tomatoes begin to wilt and break down (about three to five minutes), turn the heat down to medium. Add the garlic, thyme, and sugar to the pan. Cook for an additional two minutes.
4. Evenly spread the crispy naan with the crushed tomato mixture, and top with the burrata, bacon, and onion strips. Bake until the cheese is gooey and melted and the edges of the onions are slightly charred (about eight to 10 minutes). Drizzle the pizzettas with the remaining two tablespoons of olive oil, garnish with cracked black pepper, slice, and serve.
