Grilled truffle flatbread pizza

Inspired by the fact that I promised a recipe from the last post from my truffle class, this pizza is through and through a mushroom explosion.
I start with a truffle crust using unbleached flour and truffle flour. 93002_white_truffle_flour
Then, I make my own flatbread crust on the grill and add savory toppings to compliment the truffle crust and truffle oil.

6 flatbread

Stovetop griddle or
Pizza stone in 375 degree oven or
Pizza stone over high heat grill

3. Sprinkle surface with small amount of flour and turn out dough
4. Cut dough into 6 pieces, roll in hand to form small balls and place onto sheet pan
