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.

Ingredients
Servings: Pizza
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a pizza base tray with parchment paper.
  2. Remove the skin from the baked sweet potatoes. Measure out 1 cup of sweet potato. Place the potatoes in a bowl and mash well.
  3. Add the almond meal, egg, cheese (if using), baking soda, dried Italian herbs, garlic, and sea salt. Mix until well-combined. The dough will be fairly damp.
  4. Bring the dough together into a ball. Transfer to the baking sheet. Oil your hands and press out into a 9- to 10-inch or slightly larger round that is about 1/2-inch thick.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove the crust from the oven and spread the pesto over the top. Top with the cheese, followed by the thinly sliced fennel and shallots, and halved grape tomatoes.
  6. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until cheese is golden and bubbly and the crust is browned to your liking (we like ours pretty dark and crisp!).
  7. Remove from oven. Let cool for a few minutes, top with baby arugula, if using, and cut into wedges and serve.

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!

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!

  3. I would never have thought of using sweet potato as a pizza base. I have seen the cauliflower ones before though. My mum has coeliac disease so I’ll be sending her a link to this recipe

  5. I’ve never thought of making a pizza base from potatoes before and love sweet potatoes. Strange, as my grandmother used to make potato scones so I suppose it isn’t so different. Will definitely give it a go.
