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:

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.

Here is the link to recipe on my site:

What You'll Need
  • 8 small purple potatoes
  • 1/2 cup fresh ricotta cheese
  • 1 sprig Fresh Rosemary - chopped
  • 2 pinches Truffle salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  1. Slice your potatoes
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Place your sliced potatoes in the pan and and a pinch of salt. Toss to coat with oil and salt, and let the taters heat up.
  3. Add 1/4 cup of water to steam them a bit and some fresh chopped rosemary. Simmer until tender (you will be able to easily pierce them with a knife.
  4. Spread the ricotta cheese on your stretched out pizza dough. Top with the potato mixture. Drizzle with a little olive oil, and add some more rosemary if you like.
  5. Bake in the oven at 500 degrees (on a pizza stone, preferably) for about 10 minutes.
