Calling all mushroom lovers, let me introduce you to the Truff-Ghi! This heavenly creation showcases all that is the best on pizza and some. If roasted garlic cremini mushrooms, caramelized onions, double-smoked bacon with white truffle sauce isn’t something to get excited about, I don’t know what is.

Yield: 1 large Detroit Style pizza. Enough for 3-4 people
