1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Grease a baking sheet.

2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough to a ¼-inch thickness. Carefully transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet. Spread the pesto evenly over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Layer on the cheddar cheese, then the sliced potato. Drizzle the pizza with olive oil and sprinkle with everything bagel spice. Bake until the crust is golden and the potatoes are crisp, 10 to 15 minutes.

3. Top the pizza with burrata, allowing it to warm through, about 5 minutes. Top with fresh basil and thyme and drizzle with olive oil. Slice and serve.

Note: I recommend using a mandoline for the best results in slicing the potato, but a very sharp knife and a steady hand will work, too.
