I love pizza, and I love living in Brooklyn, so I’m very much partial to New York-style pizza over Chicago-style. That said, I have to give some credit to those Chicagoans for the sheer amount of cheese on those deep-dish monsters (I love cheese more than pizza). But you know what I don’t like about Chicago pizza? I feel terrible after eating it, especially in the heat of the summer. There must be a middle ground.

Enter: my spicy Italian tomato pie with burrata. It lands somewhere between New York and Chicago pizza with a buttery pastry crust, thick layer of burrata and fresh, ripe tomatoes. Get ready for an awesomely satisfying summer meal.
