Sweet Potato Pizza Crust
May 6, 2022
I must admit that the pizza fan in me was a bit skeptical when my friend Jhuma proposed this recipe for dinner. But being a lover of veggies in all forms I was game to try. Not only did it win me over but I was anticipating the delicious leftovers the next day.

- 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (yields about 1 cup cooked sweet potato)
- 3 T tapioca starch
- 3 T coconut flour
- 1/2 t dried oregano
- 1/2 t sea salt
A purchased or prepared marinara sauce
- ½ red onion finely sliced
- 3-4 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/4 red bell pepper, diced
- 5-6 olives
- 1/4 small zucchini, sliced
- Handful of fresh arugula
- Handful of fresh basil
- Vegan Cheese
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- Place the diced sweet potatoes in a steamer. Cover with a lid and steam for 10-15 minutes, until tender. Remove and cool.
- Mash sweet potatoes in a bowl with a fork or potato masher until smooth. Measure out 1 cup of mashed sweet potato and leave the rest for another recipe.
- Blend together the mashed sweet potato with the flours and starch dried oregano and sea salt. Set aside.
- Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place the dough on top. Using your hands, spread the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until hardened on top.
