Footnotes

  • Use purchased pesto, found near the refrigerated pastas in your supermarket.
  • Chopped roasted garlic in water, available in jars, is a great convenience item to keep on hand. You can also use fresh garlic, or roast your own.
  • Prebake the crust for only a few minutes to allow the potatoes to get perfectly done without overbrowning the crust.

Wasn't sure what to think of this since I was the first one to rate it. This was actually really good! I followed the recipe pretty much exactly (I did form it into a circle instead of the square) and really enjoyed the pesto flavor. I made sure the potatoes were real thin so they softened, and the added onions on top really added to the flavor. Yum!

I used homemade spelt flour crust for this, and it was quite good. I also added some parmesan cheese on top. The oil from the pesto made it pretty greasy, but I didn't mind that much.
