Recipe Directions

1. For the Tomato Spread: In a sauté pan on medium heat, add oil, onion and garlic. Sauté until soft and translucent, about 5-6 minutes. Add the tomatoes and all of their liquid into the sauté pan and lower the heat. Stir in the honey and vinegar (and about a ¼ cup of water if needed to thin the mixture). Cook on low heat for 30 minutes or until all of the liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally so it does not burn. Season to taste.
2. For the Chili Oil: Whisk all ingredients together and set aside for service.
3. To assemble the pizza: Preheat oven to 425° F. Parbake the pizza crust for 3-5 minutes. Remove from oven, cool and top with a thin layer of the tomato spread. Layer on the burrata slices and sprinkle the sausage style crumbles and peppers on top. Place back into the heated oven and cook for 5-8 minutes, until heated through and cheese is bubbly.
4. To serve: Remove the pizza from the oven and drizzle with the Chili Oil before slicing.
