I haven’t posted a pizza in quite a while, and here is why…Until about a week ago, I could never get a good photo of a pizza. I think it’s how round they tend to be. I have a hard time photographing large, round things. I know, I am beyond strange. The only way to get better is to keep doing it though, right? Well here we are, and I’m slowly getting better. I thought that this smoky sausage and burrata pizza was the best way to get back into the pizza groove. I LOVE pizza. It’s totally a guilty pleasure of mine, and when I crave pizza, I need it…like now. Like anything else, my cravings tend to come and go. I am so happy this burrata pizza made in an appearance in my life though because now I get to share it with you!
