Pizza with summer truffle slices and pachino tomatoes

This pizza is an example of how easy it is to use the truffle to make a classic recipe of the Italian culinary tradition: let's revisit the classic margherita with fresh tomatoes and our summer truffle slices. Let's see the ingredients we need for 2 people.


  • 500 gr flour TYPE 0 (or TYPE 2) (stone milled)
  • 15 gr salt up (whole wheat)
  • water (room temperature)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 15 gr mother yeast (dried)
  • 1 mozzarella fior di latte
  • Summer truffle slices (SHOP HERE).
  • basil (large leaf)
  • 10 fresh tomatoes

The first step is to prepare the pizza dough: we need dried yeast and flour, carefully mix the two ingredients. Add water a little at a time until the dough is smooth and homogeneous : you will be able to form a ball of dough that you will have to work and beat vigorously  on your work surface in order to develop the gluten shirt and make your pizza lighter and more fragrant. Let the dough rest for about 2 hours in a container covered with a damp cloth. THE STRAIGHT: put it to rise inside the oven leaving only the light on: it will create the right temperature to make it grow. Add a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil to your dough to spread it properly into the pan.

Proceed now with the preparation of the other ingredients: cut the mozzarella fior di latte into cubes, the tomatoes into coarse slices. Distribute them homogeneously over the pizza adding basil leaves and some oil at the end.preparazione pizza ingredienti

Now put your PIZZA in the oven preheated to 250 ° for about 20 minutes (cooking times may vary depending on the type of oven you have at home: traditional, ventilated or gas). In this case we have chosen to cook on a wood-fired oven as tradition teaches.

Once the pizza is cooked, finish our recipe by adding the truffle slices. You can also replace the slices with a fresh summer black truffle.
