Cranberry Basil Flatbreads with Cream Burrata are easy appetizer that’s perfect anytime of year.  Soft, toasted na’an flatbreads, premium cranberries reduced with fresh garden basil and creamy melted burrata.


  • 2 na’an style flatbreads
  • 1 1/2 cups Cape Cod Select Premium Cranberries
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 10 basil leaves, julienned plus additional for garnish
  • 1 ball burrata


  1. Preheat & Simmer:  Preheat oven to 400°F.  In a medium saucepan, combine cranberries, sugar, lemon juice and basil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar melts.
  2. Boil:  Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, and boil for 3 minutes.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.  Let cool 10-15 minutes.
  3. Prepare:  Place the flatbreads on a baking sheet.  Spread the cranberry basil mix on the flatbreads.  Tear the burrata apart and scatter pieces over the cranberries.
  4. Bake:  Bake at 400°F for 3 to 6 minutes.


Baking for 3-6 minutes will warm and toast the flatbread.  If you prefer a pizza, crunchy style flatbread cook the plain flatbread for 3-4 minutes first then add the toppings and return to the oven until the burrata is melty, about another 3 minutes.

This recipe can easily be baked in the toaster oven to avoid baking in the heat of the summer.  Follow the recipe directions the same but bake one at a time, directly on the rack.
