Zucchini Lemon Pizza with Truffle is so flavorful and texturally beautiful; with fresh lemon zing and black truffle umami richness.


  • 1 Prepared Pizza Dough
  • 1 cup Grated Gruyére Cheese
  • 1/2 Zucchini, sliced into ribbons
  • 1 Lemon, sliced into paper-thin rounds
  • Black Truffle Paste (like Sabatino Tartufi Black Truffle Paste)
  • Pecorino Romano Cheese, grated over cooked pizza



Preheat oven to 450 degrees.


On a floured pizza peel, dust the dough with flour and create a crust around the perimeter of the dough and flatten down the center.


Stretch it out on the backs of your hands, left hand over right hand, until the dough is roughly 12-inches around.


Add more flour evenly on the peel and lay the dough on the peel.


First add a layer of Gruyére cheese, reserving a little bit to top the pizza before it hits the oven.


Lay the zucchini ribbons over the the cheese, in a slightly overlapping pattern.


Top the zucchini with the lemon slices. And sprinkle on the remaining Gruyére.


Bake the pizza for 15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly.


When the pizza comes out of the oven, use a teaspoon to dollop as much or as little truffle paste as you like, evenly over the pizza.


Use a rasp-style grater to grate the Pecorino Romano over the top of the whole pie, be sure to top the crust too.


Slice and enjoy!
