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.
