Instructions
 

Ricotta White Pizza

  • First, clean and slice the mushrooms. Add the mushrooms, salt, olive oil, butter, and minced garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until the edges of the mushrooms are brown.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F or follow the instructions on the dough's package if they state another temperature. If using a wood-burning pizza stove, fire it up so it's ready to go.
  • Place the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the dough.
  • Next, scatter 1 cup of ricotta cheese over the dough. Use quarter-sized pieces of cheese.
  • Add the cooked mushrooms on top.
  • Follow the baking instructions for the pizza dough you purchased. Each pizza dough brand's instructions vary slightly.
  • After baking, drizzle a little truffle oil over the pizza and its edges.
  • Next, sprinkle truffle salt over the pizza and its edges.
  • Lastly, garnish the pizza with red pepper flakes and fresh green onions.
  • Serve immediately.
