Recipe of the Day: Radicchio Pizza with Truffle Oil

Try Alicia Silverstone's Radicchio Pizza with Truffle Oil. It's the perfect pizza for dinner parties or just a cozy night at home. 



  • 1 large head radicchio
  • Olive oil
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • White truffle oil, to taste
  • 1 fresh pizza crust (preferably a healthy, whole grain one)



  • Cut the radicchio in half, then slice each half crosswise into thin ribbons (as thin as possible).
  • Dress with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a few dashes of white truffle oil to taste.
  • Preheat the oven to 415 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Toast the pizza crust in the oven for 7 minutes, or until it is heated through and slightly golden, but not crunchy.
  • Scatter the dressed radicchio over the pizza crust and return to the oven for another 3-5 minutes, until the radicchio is warm and just starting to wilt.
  • Serve immediately.
