Don’t just buy white potatoes! Farmer’s markets are the best places where you will find different colored potatoes of all shapes and sizes. I also added a sweet potato to add more color.

The result is a thinner crust than the cauliflower, with a nice chewiness. A wetter topping such as tomato sauce can make it a bit soggy, but tastes so good that I don’t mind. Pesto works really…
