Crispy Seasoned Potato Pesto Pizza with Cashew Mozzarella Cream and Arugula on an Herbed Crust

Crispy seasoned potato pesto pizza with cashew mozzarella cream and arugula on an herbed crust has many simple components that make up a complex flavor experience. The fresh herby pesto uses simple ingredients and can be made without a food processor. The crunchy seed and garlic seasoning make the potatoes taste like crispy bits of heaven. The cashew mozzarella cream pulls all of the flavors together with a smooth rich creamy finish. The arugula adds a bit of color and spiciness that is the perfect complement to the other ingredients.

As with all of my pizza recipes, you can use store-bought pizza dough but I highly recommend that you give my herbed pizza dough recipe a try. I created this recipe as a skillet pizza because the thick crust comes to crispy perfection when placed in the hot skillet and becomes the perfect vehicle to deliver the rest of the pizza’s ingredients. Enjoy!
