A layer of shredded mozzarella cheese is laid over the dough, followed by a sprinkling of wild mushrooms—sautéed in olive oil and garlic—and a stripped sprig of fresh thyme.

Pale salted butter is laced with chopped truffles and brought to just about room temperature during service. A hearty dollop is placed in a small pan—you’ll want to make sure you have enough butter, when melted, to thickly coat the bottom of the pan.

About 3 minutes into the bake, place the small pan in the oven with the pizza.

After a minute, the truffle butter will gently melt down. Remove the hot pan and crack one egg right into the butter and return it to oven. Allow the egg and pizza to cook for another 2 minutes—7 minutes total for the pizza. Remove the pizza and truffle butter-fried egg from the oven and get ready for the grand finale!
