Recipe for crust adapted from pinch of yum’s 3 ingredient sweet potato crust pizza
Happy Halloween! This post has been a long time coming, but since I had an unexpected day at home today (read: possible fracture after dropping a cookie sheet on my toe yesterday morning), I thought it was time to finally get it up.
This sweet potato crust pizza is super easy and adaptable to whatever odds and ends you have on hand! I imagine it would be really tasty with pinch of yum’s BBQ toppings, or traditional marinara. I didn’t have either one available, so I chose a tahini dressing to drizzle over the top! I also topped it with some pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds I picked up at Trader Joe’s (don’t judge me- I didn’t realize they were PS until after I got home and PS is still NOT ok).
I like to serve a lil slice of this with some wilted spinach on the side. I imagine this would be perfect to serve before the kiddos leave for trick-or-treating tonight! Recipe below.
- 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- dash of paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- Toppings for pizza: e.g. mushrooms, spinach, beans, broccoli, mozzarella
- Tahini Dressing:
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- squirt of red wine vinegar
- hot water to thin out
- Prepare crust:
- Place crust ingredients (diced sweet potatoes, through salt) in food processor and pulse until resembling a loose dough.
- Mix in 1/2 cup parmesan cheese.
- Press firmly and evenly in bottom of a lightly sprayed casserole dish (you could also use a pizza pan lined with parchment paper)
- Bake at 400 deg for 25-30 minutes until dry.
- Top with your favorite toppings and return to oven until tender.
- Cool and cut into squares. Serve with wilted spinach or a side salad w/ tahini dressing (whisk all dressing ingredients listed above)
(Note: Pinch of yum suggests inverting the crust after the first bake and baking it again, but that felt way too high maintenance to me so I decided to just bake it one-sided. The result was a little on the soft side, and would probably fall apart if you tried to pick it up like a piece of pizza. If that is really important to you, I’d suggest trying her method!)
