  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel and halve shallot. Slice half the shallot into thin strips and mince other half.

    Mince garlic.

    Core tomatoes and cut into 1/2" dice.

    Drain burrata if necessary. Place in a mixing bowl and mash until the consistency of cottage cheese. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Make the Sauce

    Place a small pot over medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, minced shallot, and garlic to hot pot. Stir constantly until fragrant, 30-60 seconds.

    Add tomatoes and stir occasionally until tomatoes soften and release their liquid, 2 minutes.

    Add 1/4 cup water and tomato paste and mash into a chunky sauce. Season with 1/2 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    Bring to a simmer and stir occasionally until sauce slightly thickens, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  3. 3

    Par-Bake the Flatbreads

    Place flatbreads directly on oven rack and bake in hot oven until lightly browned, 6-8 minutes.

    Remove flatbreads from oven and set on a clean work surface.

  4. 4

    Assemble and Bake the Pizzas

    Set aside 1/4 cup sauce. Divide remaining sauce between flatbreads. Top with dollops of mashed burrata.

    Place flatbreads directly on oven rack with prepared baking sheet on rack below to collect any drips. Bake until cheese bubbles, 5-7 minutes.

    Rest cooked pizzas 3 minutes before slicing.

    While pizzas bake, make dressing.

  5. 5

    Make Salad and Finish Dish

    In another mixing bowl, combine vinegar, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, sugar, and a pinch of pepper. Stir until sugar is dissolved.

    While pizzas rest, toss spinach and sliced shallot (to taste) with dressing.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing pizzas with basil pesto and using remaining sauce to dip, if desired. Bon appétit!
