The first time I made grilled pizzas, Lenny thought I lost my mind. The next time I decided to make them, I decided our guests would make their own individual ones. He really thought I lost my mind. Both times, he was wrong. Grilling pizza is super 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 of 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 6 pm) we were not prepared, so I had to use what we had in the house. The toppings I 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 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!

Grilled Prosciutto & Black Truffle Pizza
pizza dough, homemade or your favorite brand
good quality prosciutto
good quality black truffles
black truffle oil
fresh cracked black pepper
Roll out your pizza dough to a size that fits on the grill. Lightly grill the dough for a couple of minutes to par-bake it. Remove from the grill.
Top it with Parmesan cheese, prosciutto, and black truffles, and an egg.
Place the pizza back on the grill and cook until the cheese is melted and the egg is cooked to your liking. We like a runny yolk so this takes about 5 minutes.
Before serving drizzle with a little black truffle oil, a sprinkle of sea salt, and fresh cracked black pepper.
