1.            Mix 1/2 burrata with truffle and 2 tbsp. mascarpone and put them in a piping bag.

2.            Shape your pizza dough into a ghost shape (see photo 1 and 2)

3.            Place the dough on the pizza peel (use a mixture of fine semolina and flour to spread the pizza and allow it to slide easily) and top with butternut cream, mozzarella and smoked scarmozza.

4.            Place the pizza in your wood-fired oven (heated to 450°C)

5.            Turn the pizza every 20 seconds to prevent it from burning.

6.            After 1 min 30 and 2 min cooking time, remove your pizza.

7.            Let your imagination run wild, place 2 olives in the eyes of the ghost and top the pizza with chestnut cream and the truffled burrata and mascarpone mixture.

Good to know: if you are lucky enough to have a garden, you can reuse the cooled ashes in your vegetable garden or at the foot of your rose bushes. Ashes are rich in elements that promote plant growth.
