I prefer to use a thin layer of corn truffle so I do cut mine with tomato sauce to make it spreadable. The taste can be strong to some. I do the same with my mole pizzas. Only twice have I seen fresh Cuitlacoche or Huitlacoche, both are correct spellings , in stores so I, like Bill, use canned. Very nice pie Bill. I can't find any pics of mine, oh well.
