Author Notes: This is a make-at-home pizza recipe with fresh, seasonal ingredients. I bought the purple potatoes as well as the rosemary from the Farmer's Market (Union Square, NYC).

The ricotta cheese was a truffle salt variety I made myself from this recipe: http://johnandelana.wordpress...

The dough I obtained from Eataly (23rd and 5th Ave in NYC). Usually, I make my own dough, but I was taste tasting some store-bought examples in this case.
