BUrrata is a fresh cheese that is, to my understanding, made of mozzarella and cream. The outer core resembles the outside of a fresh ball of mozzarella, but the interior is far more milky and creamy due to the cream and scraps of mozzarella curd used to make it.

You can easily substitute fresh mozzarella, goat cheese and feta also go wonderfully with beets.

A substitute would be fresh mozzarella. Burrata is a fairly modern cheese. It originated in Puglia only back in the 1950's. It's like mozarella but with a thin skin. When pierce that skin it smells like the breath of angels. About 10 years ago Gioa cheese company just outside of Los Angeles decided to revive it and it became an overnight sensation with local chefs.
