Tips for using fresh truffles on pizza

I'm about shell out some serious dough (no pun intended) for some fresh truffles to be used as a pizza topping. Are there any do's and don'ts when it comes to using fresh truffles? They're pretty expensive so I want to make sure I get it right.

I'm no expert, and I've only used them a few times, but here are a few tips that might come in handy:

1. Truffles have a short shelf life, so use them quickly. Within a week.
2. To preserve them, wrap them in a paper towel, then place in an airtight container and refrigerate. Open the container at least once a day and replace the paper towels.
3. For pizzas, use a truffle shaver and place thin slices on top of your pizza after it come out of the oven.
4. A little bit goes a long way. When you're buying truffles, keep this in mind. You should be thinking in terms of grams, not pounds or kilograms.

good luck!
