Potato and Pesto Pizza Topped with Vegan Crème Fraîche and Micro Greens

246

My Potato and Pesto Pizza Topped with Vegan Crème Fraîche and Micro Greens looks fancy but can be made quickly if you make the Vegan Crème Fraîche in advance and use store-bought pizza dough. I love the pairing of Vegan Crème Fraîche with potatoes and the spice mixture gives this recipe a depth of umami flavor. The fresh pesto is easy to make and adds a level of herby freshness. If you have extra time try out my basic pizza dough recipe.
