Prosciutto and Truffle Thin Crust Pizza

Prosciutto and Truffle Thin Crust Pizza

This is one of my personal favorite pizzas.  The taste of truffles and prosciutto marry perfectly on this thin crust pizza.

Recipe from: The Kitchen at Gourmet Food World
Time: 15 minutes (not including pizza dough making)     Level: Super Simple

INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

  • Place a pizza stone (or the flat side of a solid cast iron grill) in your oven and preheat the oven to 500 degrees.
  • With your thin crust pizza dough rolled out on your cookie sheet (refer to the thin crust pizza dough recipe) add the passata rustica and spread out with the back of a soup spoon.  The sauce is not going to cover every square inch – just add enough so it is spread out on the dough.
  • Cover with the shredded Sottocenere al Tartufo cheese and the Fresh Mozzarella di Buffala.  Don’t put too much cheese on the pizza or it will spill out all over while cooking.  Add enough to cover the pizza with a thin layer.
  • Bake the pizza in the oven for 5-7 minutes until the pizza crust is lightly browned and the cheese is all melted.
  • Remove from oven and layer the prosciutto on top of the pizza, and then lightly drizzle with some truffle oil (not that much, just a light random drizzle).  Slice and serve!

Grilled Truffle Cheese Sandwich

Grilled Truffle Cheese Sandwich RecipeThis super simple twist on the classic grilled cheese takes it straight from the kid’s menu to the gourmand’s favorite list.

Recipe from: The Kitchen at Gourmet Food World
Time: 5 minutes    Level: Super Simple

INGREDIENTS:

  • A hearty country white bread with a crunchy crust and soft interior, sliced to about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch slices
  • Truffle cheese.  We recommend our Sottocenere Al Tartufo or Boschetto.  Sliced to 1/4 inch thick slices.
  • Truffle butter.  We recommend our Italian Black Truffle Butter. About a teaspoon per sandwich.
  • Clove of fresh garlic, peeled, cut in half.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Toast the bread on a grill, or broil it in the oven.  Just enough to give it a light crunchy crust.
  • Take your two pieces of toasted bread and lightly rub one side with the cut garlic.  Take the other piece of bread and spread about 1 teaspoon of truffle butter over it.
  • Lay on the sliced truffle cheese and return to a 350 degree oven for about 5-8 minutes.  Just watch it and when the cheese looks like it’s starting to melt out, it’s done.
  • Slice and serve immediately while it’s warm, gooey and truffley delicious.
