Everyone who knows me knows I am a truffle addict. I love to sprinkle them over poached eggs, toss them with warm pasta, and serve tapenade on the side of cheese boards. One of my favourite new ways to add truffles into the rotation: Truffle pizza with garlic white sauce!

I’m so lucky to have access to a local truffle orchard at Below The Oaks Farm. Their truffle dog Otto does a harvest about once a week from December – April, and I make sure to take full advantage of the season. They do Canada wide shipping, so if you’d like to get your hands on some beautiful white bianchettos, visit them on instagram!

I borrowed the pizza dough recipe from the blog Sugar Spun Run (You can get their recipe here).

The rest of the instructions are below!

Continue to cook the mushrooms until they are almost dry (or as my friend Lauren says: "Until they pop like a campfire"). Add a splash of wine to the pan and continue to cook until all the wine as burned off. Remove from the heat.

  • Roll your dough out thin and place on your parchment lined cookie sheet. Puncture the dough throughout with a fork.

  • Spoon white sauce on to your pizza dough, and spread it out to the crust
  • Sprinkle your mushrooms on top of the white sauce
  • Add shredded pizza mozzarella, then rip chunks of fresh mozzarella and add them on top.
  • Dust with fennel seeds and oregano
  • Bake at 425 for approximately 12-13 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Carefully remove your pizza from the oven. Sprinkle with freshly cracked pepper, arugula, and truffle shavings. (If you do not have fresh truffle, substitute with a drizzle of truffle oil)
  • Enjoy!
