Sweet potato pizza base!! As you probably know, I-love-me some sweet potato!
I have tonnes of recipes dedicated to it and tonnes more I haven’t published…the thing is, I saw the recipe months ago. Way back to before I had my cauliflower bread obsession.
I almost wish I’d not learnt about the cauliflower but the grilled cheese is a brilliant recipe too so I’m glad I went through the experience to find this one…
This pizza is thick and doughy like a traditional pizza Base, mine was a little too thick. Ideally, you want to go for 1/2 an inch or just over a centimetre. The base is firm, so it cuts cleanly and holds the toppings so every bite is gorgeous. Don’t worry, I know you feel like you don’t want to believe me. I wouldn’t believe me either, but when you try it, come back to my site and apologise for not trusting me.
Would I lead you astray?
This is *the recipe* I followed, but it has been adapted as it was a bit thick and heavy on my first bake of this. So it’s been tried and approved by me! The next trial was for toppings, now I’m normally a plain tomato and basil girl but that’s not effective marketing a healthy pizza with health toppings is just boredom.
Not that healthy is boring at all, just that when you have something healthy you can treat yourself to some extra flavours to enhance your food.
Throw on some luxury and some spicy flavours, go wild, I did. Mine is a bbq roasted chicken pizza with peppers and red onion, it was gorgeous!
- 1 cup of flour
- 100g sweet potato (around medium size)
- A pinch of salt
- A pinch of mixed herbs
Combine and flatten on baking parchment and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes until firm to the touch. Leave to cool and it will shrink slightly, this is just the water from the potato leaving.
Once cooled, flip it over and top it with your favourite flavours!
Of course, you can leave out the cheese entirely but a but of sin never hurt anyone! Replace the gluten-free flour with 2/3 the amount of regular flour for a basic sweet potato recipe.
However, the gluten-free flour from I use is just as good.
Over the next month, I’ll be introducing new recipes for slimming down In summer. Get yourself some inspiration, grab some veg and get cooking. There are tonnes of ways to use up your veg and if pizza isn’t your choice then pop over to the veg hub.
If you’re trying ANY of my recipes and any of my advice I hope it’s this one, I hope it grabs your attention enough for you to realise what a great alternative it is. Of course, you needn’t use the same toppings as I have, experiment with your ingredients (live a little!)
But whatever you do..try it!
