I'm a true pizza lover and at Domino's they make a great style called "Cheese Burst", the only problem is I can't eat it due to religious reasons.

As a Jain, I don't eat some common foods. For more details about Jain food restrictions you can read: this or this.

At Domino's, they told me, "we use a catchup sauce which is made with garlic."

Can someone tell me:

  • How to make a version of the Cheese Burst Pizza that I can eat?
  • How to get that cheesy layer when you take a slice out of it?
  • Which elements of this Cheese Burst pizza can't you eat?

    @Hemang people like this sauce because they like the flavor of garlic. There are a few substitutes which have a similar flavor (wood garlic, asafoetida), but if your religion prohibits the flavor itself, regardless of its source, then there is no way to make a pizza with this flavor and still keep your religious rules.

    Even if you could eat garlic, it is always hard to try to reproduce chain restaurant recipes, they have it down to a science.

    @huangism our comment thread has become both off topic and somewhat offensive. I'm cleaning it up.

    So basically the question is how to reproduce the cheese-burst crust style at home, where you can top it with a sauce you like? There's nothing about the crust itself you can't eat, right? Commented Jan 26, 2015 at 18:28

1 Answer 1

  1. Experiment! If you can't have garlic, try for a tomato/italian seasoning mix. Make your own pasta sauce from scratch and substitute in or out for the things you can/cannot eat. Onion and garlic will be hard to replace, but don't confine yourself to "this is what the sauce should be." Use spices you like the flavor of. Maybe try a curry-inspired sauce?

  2. The cheesy layer seems to come from a thick layer of cheese melted between the dough and sauce. If you grate mozzarella directly onto the olive-oiled bread, then top it with sauce and your second cheese, that should be enough to sate your cheese-lust! Also keep in mind that that is food-photo magic in part. Yours will most likely not look like that, but it will taste great!
