    Very good recipe with great ingredients that your photos make look even more appetizing. Curious as to whether the Truffle Oil to use should be of a certain brand or specific quality. I understand Truffle Oil is not made of actual truffles but, instead, of synthetic ingredients that add the aroma of truffles to actual olive oil. Since olive oil is available in different grades wonder how that may impact the “truffle oil” and the taste of the pizza.

      Oh, that’s interesting…I just checked the kind I use and it is in fact just “infused.” The brand is La Tourangelle and the ingredients are grapeseed oil with white truffle aroma. I’m nsmilitant about checking labels when it comes to meat, dairy, eggs, and other junk, I forget oils are often infused. I imagine, however, that grapeseed oil is actually better for you anyway. The aroma part . . . maybe not so much. I remember paying $15 for this one–I hate to see how much the real deal costs!
