Sweet Potato Crust Pizza

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.

Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  1. Prepare crust:
  2. Place crust ingredients (diced sweet potatoes, through salt) in food processor and pulse until resembling a loose dough.
  3. Mix in 1/2 cup parmesan cheese.
  4. Press firmly and evenly in bottom of a lightly sprayed casserole dish (you could also use a pizza pan lined with parchment paper)
  5. Bake at 400 deg for 25-30 minutes until dry.
  6. Top with your favorite toppings and return to oven until tender.
  7. 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!)
