Sweet Potato Crust Mini Pizzas

Hope everyone is having a great weekend (as well as an extra hour of sleep)! To cap off the weekend, I thought I would share one of our dinnertime faves.

I love pizza and miss the real take away stuff – celiac is irritating like that. Not to mention, I *try* to cook things that are healthy and filling, so when a friend of mine pass along the recipe for Kale Pizza with Sweet Potato Crust (as adapted from Callie England), I had to try it – and it was a big hit in our little home, gluten free and all! I tweaked the toppings a bit, but the original kale combo is equally delish!

Sweet Potato Crust

2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes

2.5 cups of gluten free flour

2 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup of cold water

2 T of olive oil

dash of seat salt

Process all ingredients in a food processor (or stir incessantly until smooth a la Abby).

Stir! Stir! Stir!

Stir! Stir! Stir!

Once combined, place dough in bowl and use hands to form 2 balls. On a baking sheet (silicone, or pizza stone) roll dough into circular shape about .25 inch thick. Should yield 2 8β€³ crust. (I make a few different sizes for variety.)

In a preheated oven, bake crust at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Add desired toppings – we tried chicken sausage, rocket, tomatoes, parm, and red bell peppers last night – and bake for another 20 minutes at 400 degrees or until outer crust turns brown.

Once browned, remove from oven and allow to cool.

  1. Great idea!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. they look really good, were the ingredients difficult to source here in DXB

    • Not too bad! The big Carrefour at MOE has a good selection of gluten free flour as well as sweet potatoes – for the toppings, I just picked what produce/meat looked fresh at the time

    • Also – if you havent been yet, Safest Way near Business Bay has some great “Western” foods/brands/household items that I havent been able to find at Spinneys/Carrefour/Waitrose (Swiffers, “American” cereals, Jiff peanut butter, etc)
