The first time we made grilled pizzas, Lenny thought I lost my mind. The next time we decided to make them, I also decided our guests would make their own individual ones, he really thought I lost my mind. Both times, he was wrong. Grilling pizza is easy and having your guests make their own is a huge hit!
Recently, when we had a warm pre-summer evening, we invited a couple friends over for pizza and wine. The only thing was, they would be cooking their own pizzas. These friends were newbies to our pizza dinner party concept and they loved it! As this was completely last minute (say 6pm) we were not prepared, so we had to use what we had in the house. The toppings we came up with was: black truffles, white corn, cilantro, prosciutto, caramelized fennel with red peppers, blue cheese, Parmesan cheese, and eggs.
We have been meaning to give Celine a new recipe using her wonderful truffles and used this opportunity to exactly that. We made a luscious prosciutto and black truffle pizza with egg – it was amazing!!! Slightly salty and earthy with the creamiest of the just cooked egg! If you love pizza, prosciutto and truffles, this is your pizza!
Recipe: Grilled Prosciutto & Black Truffle Pizza
pizza dough, see recipe above
good quality prosciutto
good quality black truffles
black truffle oil
fresh cracked black pepper
Basically, we used our basic pizza dough recipe, topped it with Parmesan cheese, prosciutto and black truffles; grilling it just until the dough was set and then topping it with an egg and cooking for another 3 – 5 minutes, depending on how you like your egg. Before serving drizzling with a little black truffle oil, a sprinkle of sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper …. amazing!
