“Lather, rinse, repeat.” That’s what the back of some shampoo bottles say. That same label should be on the wall above every kitchen sink. We find ourselves following the same routine for breakfast, lunch, dinner, oh and the few snacks in between. Good thing we love our kitchens because feeding our families has us spending a large portion of our day in there. However, as much as we love them, we still need a break. A change of scenery. That’s where summer comes in to play.


We shouldn’t have to beg you to make this. After all, it’s melted cheese on bread.

Grilled FlatBread With Burrata Cheese

We have had the most amazing weather for the past two weeks and we can’t complain. Our houses stay clean with our littles playing outside all day and our kitchens stay even cleaner as we refuse to add any extra heat to the house with our ovens. This has us experimenting with virtually every food group on the grill. So, we present you with our current go-to…grilled flatbread.

Grilled FlatBread With Burrata Cheese

We shouldn’t have to beg you to make this. After all, it’s melted cheese on bread. So we’ll just strongly suggest it because it’s too easy and delicious for you to miss out on. You really can use whatever toppings you’d like, but burrata currently has a special place in our hearts. One, it’s so good with tomatoes. And two, it’s cheese filled with cheese and cream. How much better can cheese get?

Grilled FlatBread With Burrata Cheese

Serves 4

Tomato Skewers

4 skewers used for grilling
1 8 oz cherry tomatoes
olive oil
kosher salt
freshly ground pepper

Flatbread

1 lb fresh pizza dough
flour for dusting
1 cup olive oil
8 oz burrata cheese, drained in a colander
8 oz parmesan cheese, grated
2 tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped

Method

  1. Divide and evenly pierce the tomatoes with the skewers. Pour a small amount of olive oil over each skewer, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Turn grill on. Over low heat, lay tomato Skewers in the center of the grill. Grill for 5-10 minutes rotating ½ way through.
  3. While tomatoes are on the grill prepare flatbread dough. Start by cutting the pound of dough in 4 equal parts. Using flour, roll each portion of dough into ¼ inch thickness. Using a pastry brush, coat one side of the dough with olive oil.
  4. Take tomatoes off grill and place dough oil side down on grill. Carefully coat the other side of dough with oil. When large bubbles start forming on top side of dough, flip dough using a metal spatula. After flipping dough, sprinkle parmesan cheese evenly over all four flatbreads. Carefully take burrata cheese out of the colander, and pull small pieces off placing them evenly over the four flatbreads. Cover the grill lid for a few mins to let the cheese melt a little
  5. Take flatbread off the grill and sprinkle with parsley. Serve with tomato skewers.
