When people think of white truffles, they think of Italy. When people think of Italian fare, the first two thoughts are probably pasta and pizza. When we think of family night, pizza gets the nod. Pizza is a dish that everyone loves, so it is only right that I show you how to make the best white truffle pizza!
The awesome thing about this pizza is that it is vegetarian and vegan for your family and friends with dietary needs, and it can also be customized to accommodate other needs, like a gluten-free diet. Should someone want different toppings, you can absolutely try it with our truffle sauces, or you can simply make a second pizza to fit their taste.
While all of you chefs and bakers may be chomping at the bit to make an amazing pizza dough, the rest of you can simply buy a ball of fresh dough (or two, or three, or four) from your local bakery or grocery store for just a few bucks.
Whatever you choose to do, this white truffle pizza recipe will have your friends and family talking for days, and requesting this on occasions where you have the cooking duties. Enjoy!
The Best White Truffle Pizza
I wanted to keep this recipe very simple and let the truffle shine through, while taking it to the more traditional Italian style of simple pizza. For this reason, I used fresh mozzarella and only a couple of toppings to compliment the sauce.
Should you not like onions, feel free to scratch that from the ingredients list and add some arugula or a few thinly sliced bell peppers. (Remember to not add too much or too many competing flavors to your truffle dishes.)
If you don’t have any Pecorino Romano cheese, feel free to use some fresh Parmesan-Reggiano, the sharpness of these cheeses compliments the truffle very well. (Again, don’t overdo it, as a little will go a long way!)
One thing is for sure. This recipe is easy, and the experience is like something you’d only get from a fine dining restaurant who dabbles in art of making the perfect pizza.
1 ball pizza dough
1-2 tbsp Truffletopia White Truffle Sauce
12 small fresh mozzarella balls
4 medium white mushrooms, sliced
Onion, a few rings sliced into quarters
1 oz pecorino romano cheese, shredded
Let pizza dough get to room temperature before stretching out dough in shape of your liking. (I purchase fresh dough from a local store)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Put a small amount of olive oil on counter to help stretch the dough and prevent it from sticking.
Spread Truffletopia White Truffle Sauce in a thin layer across the entirety of the dough, leaving about a half inch, around the edge, plain for your crust.
Spread mozzarella balls, shredded pecorino romano cheese, onions, and mushroom slices evenly.
Bake on a baking sheet or pizza stone until crust is golden brown, about 15-20 minutes depending on the dough and the thickness of the dough.
Enjoy The Best White Truffle Pizza!
