  • Preparation Time5 mins
  • Cooking Time10 mins
  • Serves4
  • DifficultyMedium
1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
3/4 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees F)
1 3/4 to 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour plus additional for kneading and dredging
Salt and pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil, plus 1 teaspoon for greasing the bowl
12 ounces robiolo cheese, at room temperature
8 ounces buffalo mozzarella, thinly sliced
White truffle oil
1) Whisk together the yeast and 60 ml of the water in a small bowl and let sit for 5 minutes to proof.

2) Place 1 3/4 cups of the flour in a large bowl with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt. Add the yeast mixture, the remaining water and oil and stir until combined.

3) Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead until smooth. Grease a large bowl with the remaining oil, add the dough and turn to coat. Cover and place in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

4) Preheat the griddle to high. Once the dough has risen, divide it in half, and then divide each half into two balls. Roll each ball into an 20 cm circle. Brush with oil and griddle both on both sides until golden brown. Remove from griddle and slice each in half horizontally.

5) Spread bottom halves of pizza with half of the robiolo cheese and half of the mozzarella. Season with salt and pepper. Place the tops on and heat on the griddle for 30 seconds. Remove from the griddle and drizzle each pizza top with a few teaspoons of white truffle oil.

Slice into wedges and serve immediately.
