Truffle "pizza"

One of our favorite dishes at one of our favorite restaurants is Avec's Foccacia. It is basically a flat bread white pizza with truffle oil. I have tried to copy this recipe.

Truffle Pizza
1 prepared pizza dough
truffle oil
course salt
about 4 oz cheese (tellegio, fontina, or robiola)

Roll the dough out a bit thicker than you would for pizza, maybe about a quarter inch think. Brush the top with a little truffle oil.

Bake in 550 oven (on pizza stone) for about 5 - 6 minutes, until the dough has started to cook but nut yet browned. Remove from oven.

Wait a minute so the dough cools, and cut in half so that you can fill the dough. Drizzle with a little truffle oil and spread the cheese over the bottom half. Replace the top and drizzle with a little more oil and sprinkle with salt.

Bake for another 6 -8 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and drizzle a little more oil and cut to serve.
