Truffle Cream Sauce

  1. Melt the butter in a small pot with the shallots and garlic on medium heat being careful not to colour. When soft, mix in the flour combining well. Cook on low heat for five to six minutes or until light in colour and the flour taste is gone 
  2. Slowly whisk in the milk and cream until there are no lumps and simmer for a few minutes until it thickens 
  3. Add in the cheese and season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  4. Remove from heat to cool then adjust with cream for desired consistency 
  5. Mix in the truffle and truffle oil if desired 


  1. In a large pan on high heat add the sliced mushrooms, and sauté for two to three minutes until they shrink by half. Drizzle in the olive oil and stir. Add the garlic, thyme, and chilies and cook for another few minutes. Add the lemon and cook, stirring well until absorbed, and when done set aside.
  2. Dust flour on your rolling surface and start to form the fresh dough into a circle. Use a rolling pin if desired. Set on a pizza tray
  3. Spread the truffle cream evenly over the pizza dough leaving the edges uncovered.
  4. Top with the mushrooms and cheeses as desired.
  5. Preheat oven to the highest temp it will go and cook pizza for five to six minutes. 
  6. Then broil until crisp and golden
  7. Garnish with lemon zest arugula and truffle oil if desired
