While there is nothing wrong with a tomato pie, pizza can be made with all manner of savory toppings. This dish was inspired by a Smitten Kitchen recipe, but rather than stick to a single variety of potato, I got fancy with red, yellow and blue potatoes. It makes it look elaborate, but it’s actually incredibly easy. Feel free to top with your favorite tubers!
