These truffled mushroom flatbreads have sweet caramelized onions, savory mushrooms, Italian herbs, gooey mozzarella, all topped off with spicy arugula, fresh Parmesan, and a drizzle of decadent truffle oil. Do I have your attention? This recipe is bursting with flavor and while it seems extravagant, you can have this recipe done start to finish in 20 minutes!
What is Truffle Oil?
One of the not-so-secret ingredients to these truffled mushroom flatbreads in this recipe is truffle oil. Truffle oil is an oil that has been infused with the aroma and flavor of truffles. Truffles are a type of fungi, similar to a mushroom but have a rich umami flavor that will leave you drooling. (Not to be confused with the chocolate candy truffle!) Truffles are decadent and can be extremely expensive, up to $3,000/pound! Truffle oil is not nearly so pricey, I got mine for around $10.
Where to find Truffle Oil?
Truffle oil can be a little tricky to find. I found my truffle oil at World Market! But you can also find it at places like Home Goods, Williams-Sonoma, or Amazon. I’ve even occasionally found it at stores like T.J. Maxx or Marshalls! If you cannot find truffle oil I promise the flatbreads will still be delicious, however I love the richness the truffle oil adds to these!
What kind of mushrooms should I use?
My favorite kind of mushroom to use in most of my recipes, but especially in recipes where mushrooms are the star are baby bella mushrooms! Baby bella mushrooms are sometimes called cremini (sometimes spelled crimini), baby Portobello, ore even Roman mushrooms. Did you know that baby bella or cremini mushrooms are actually just juvenile Portobello mushrooms? Baby bella mushrooms have a earthier and meatier flavor than your regular white mushrooms. That said, if you can only get your hands on white mushrooms, they’ll do just fine.
What kind of Flatbreads should I use?
You can really use any kind of flatbread, naan, pitas, if you’re watching your carb intake try low carb pitas instead! I love the brand Joseph’s for low carb swaps, they have great low carb pitas and lavash bread, both of which would work wonderfully for a lighter version of this recipe with this recipe!
